    Guys, get a lifeproof case for your phone!!! I've dunked it, dropped it, stepped on it, swam with it, dropped it in mud and snow, and it has held up great.

    I second the Lifeproof suggestion, but, surprisingly, it doesn't protect the screen from cracking; because of that shortcoming I might consider other options when it is time to replace my current Lifeproof.

    This is what a 2 foot fat one looks like with the Nomad Guide net, I bought the Boat Net because the Guide is not for these fish.



    Yes that is a salmon...……



    That is a perfect example of why I don't dry fly fish here, I've caught everything from fry to smolts but never a big rainbow. If you want a big rainbow you swing streamers.




    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I've shared this one from this past season. I usually have an iPhone ( 7, 7+, XR ) but I think with this photo I was trying out an Olympus TG5 camera.

    The problem I found with the Lifeproof cases is that they often make it difficult for people to hear you. On some phones they just block off most of the sound coming into the microphone. After carrying my phone a lot in a Lifeproof case, which ultimately began to fail--I'd get a little dampness inside if I put it in the water--I've gone back to carrying a waterproof point and shoot camera that fits into a shirt pocket and you don't have to worry about getting it wet...and you can more easily take pics one-handed.

    Bass are easier to handle than trout, and I do a lot of river smallmouth fishing. I'm a firm believer in keeping them wet as well. When I want to just document a fish I caught, I generally take the time to pull over into the shallows if in my canoe, find a spot that has an inch or so of water over a gravelly bottom, lay the fish down with rod and maybe fly, and snap the picture. I really like that look. But I try to avoid muck and dirty gravel. When photographing trout I do much the same, but will also keep them in the net and just lay the net down in the shallows. And I keep myself between the fish and dry bank, so that if it flops while I'm trying to take the picture, I can "direct" the flop away from anything dry and rough. If the fish gets away at that point, oh well.

    Make sure to get phone insurance along with the Lifeproof case. I love them, but my first one started leaking and damaged my phone. It was within the 1 year warranty, so they replaced my case, and customer service was great. The phone magically came back to life, but I was almost S.O.L.

    Underwater videos are awesome

    I'm not close to the hard drive that holds all my photos, so here are the only two I have access to at the moment...the bass is another way I like to take photos for scale when fishing from my canoes...the paddle blade is wet so it does no harm to the fish, and the length of the blade from tip to where the flare out of the shaft starts is exactly 20 inches.IMG_1887.jpgIMG_0360.jpg

    I tend not to take photos of fish, I take photos of the river,surrounding area and the wildlife that I spot if I’m quick enough.
