Trout Hunter – The Ranch



I always enjoy fishing “The Fork”.  I am not an HF expert and I do not fish it nearly enough.  I just love the scenery, the river, and the challenge.  There is something mystical about the Henry’s Fork and I always come away improving in certain areas of the game. 

Some of the highlights for me on this trip were the beautiful casts made by Colby on the Madison.  I sat on a grassy bank with the camera and soaked it all up. 

The Ranch was beautiful, the weather was not cooperative, and the evening hatches were light.  It didn’t matter.  The fish that we caught were beautiful and the 12inch fishies still put up valiant fights.

I grabbed a five bracketed sequence of Jason stalking some risers and I ended my night with a horizon shot of Colby casting.  The rain added soul to the shot and I am excited with the results.

Several of the shots taken on this trip are pending publishing.  I will be able to share them with you soon.  However, I hope you enjoy the couple that I have linked.

No Sellers Remorse Here....JOIN THE DARKSIDE!

I remember it clearly, Thresher still laughs to this day and for good reason. It was back in February of this year that we stood outside in the cold shooting Bald Eagles out on the bay. It was then that I was introduced to the Nikonian ways and baptized by fire. You could say I had some lens envy and it didn't take long for me to jump ship and go B L A C K. I have kept the "Forty" in the bag just in case .... However, The more I shot on the D700-ZYTE the easier it was to leave the older and inferior body behind.

Dell, if you are reading this blog post, I am happy you feel the score on a mint 100-400 Ultrasonic L. But it is in fact I that scored and who feels the jubilee of a new Black AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED. Oh what a day of celebration it is to shed the white and feel the POWER of The D A R K S I D E ! It feels good to have completion in the arsenal.

In all seriousness....I can't wait to shoot with this boomstick! The fish shots are coming soooooon!
