Default New fly, need better camera.

I have been thinking about going to the North Shore of Lake Superior and fishing some of the rivers there like the Knife and Sucker for Steelhead. I just messing around with some ideas and came up with the Dee fly version of the Green Butt Skunk. My camera does not do closeups very well. Have any of you ever come up with a variation of an old pattern?

Dan,

If you need a better close-up camera, then try looking on ebay for a used Nikon Coolpix. Look for the 990, 995 or 4500 models; they have very good macro features. Tob1 put me onto them back in June, when I realized that my camera just couldn't handle close up shots of tiny flies.

This looks like a pretty good one to me, with plenty of time left to bid if you're interested in it.

For web publishing (which is what we do each time we put a picture into this forum), you only need 0.8 megapixels! What's really important is the quality of the macro feature on the camera.

Good luck and nice tie on that fly!

If you're going to take that camera fishing or use it anywhere near water Pentax waterproof cameras have a super macro that focuses down to 1 cm.
