    ChemEAngler, nice photo. What kind of camera do you use? I never can take pictures with that kind of clarity.

    Jimmy,

    Thanks. Actually I have started taking my DSLR to the river with me for that very reason. I have a Nikon D40, and this was taken with the 18-55mm kit lens w/ a 52mm circular polarizer. I have much higher quality lenses, but haven't been brave enough to take them to the river yet. If this lens gets ruined, then it really isn't that big of a deal...

    I carry it inside my Fishpond Dragonfly pack with a SealLine SealPak down inside my Fishpond in order to make the entire setup water tight.

    I have been talking with other FF'ing buddies who sell their pics to the magazines, and they recommended I start carrying my DSLR and the difference would be seen immediately. I have to agree with them. For some examples of what good DSLR streamwork looks like, go to Zach Matthews website and look around. Some stunning work there.

    Edit: Sorry if this is long winded, but I get a lot of people asking me why I take such a large "fancy" camera to the river. Thought I should at least try to explain why....

    Wow, thanks for the reply! I have a lot to learn about cameras, but would like to have one that takes those kinds of pictures. Maybe one day!

    I actually caught this fish July 31 but didn't get it uploaded until yesterday.



    Caught in a pond in Kentucky
    Largemouth Bass
    7wt rod
    small plastic worm (don't ask, I was trying to see if it could be done)
    no added weight, slow strip over the top of a weed bed.
