looking up…….

only vague ideas

bounce about my feeble mind

what is with the sky 

palms trees, clouds-shapes-desert-photo-SwittersB

Seems apparent looking at the abundance of sky shots that there is magic up there for many photographers. Colors, textures, cloud formations, the moon, sunsets and sunrises, all combines into a mystical draw that captures the imagination and begs, for me, why the fascination? I bounce ideas and vague notions around, but it just ends up being incomplete thoughts and sentences: something spiritual, powerful, humbling, uplifting, ominous……..just a bunch of adjectives for now.

Wet Hands…Safer Fish: The Why

“Catching and releasing trout is usually performed as quickly as possible with minimal playing and handling time. Excessive playing can damage a trout’s throat and gills. Plus, the skin of a trout is covered with a substance that protects it from disease and infections. Our dry hands (and even nets) can wipe this substance from the skin, exposing the trout to harm.” (X)

Rightly so, we are advised to wet our hands before handling a fish, because we might harm the protective coating of the fish with dry, abrasive hands or nets. But, what is that protective coating?

“Fish secrete a mucoprotein protective slime coat that covers the scales and skin. This slime coat acts as a defense against invasion by bacterial, parasitic, and fungal pathogens.” (more here @ Arkansas Stripers)

Fattening Up? Too Many Anti-Biotics?

ARE YOU TAKING TOO MANY ANTI-BIOTICS & PUTTING ON WEIGHT?

A new study suggests you may be closely linked to barnyard animals destined for the meat case. Not a pretty consideration is it?

How Do Trout Take A Fly?

“So how do trout feed? I delved into my own fishing book library, the public library, and searched the Internet. How much information did I get? Very little indeed. There are literally thousands of books on what, where and when trout feed, but very little that I could find on how trout feed.  What information I could find confirmed that trout do feed by ‘engulfing’ their prey,…” Bish & Fish re the take  

This Trout took a streamer that was being stripped back in a hurry. There was no doubt of the take….the actual ‘how’ can be better explained by Bish. I know that during a day’s fishing, I often ‘miss’ quite a few takes. The why’s of that have been open to speculation (retrieval speed, fly design, ‘far sighted’ fish). Seems the possibilities are endless on the how’s, or are they?
