I love fishing in the mountains away from the world. Here in North Carolina there are high mountain streams where some fish can only live. There are special regulations for when and where you can fish for them. Lure and bait restrictions aplenty. They are typically small at 6" -8" and sometimes up to 10". These wild native brook trout are a brilliantly colored and make for fantastic adventure. All of these fish are protected in governed waters. I practice "catch and release" and take only my memories ad a few photos from the streams. Hiking up the headwaters of a high mountain stream with a short rod spooled with 2lb test and a single hook Mepp's Aglia spinner is my Calgon. I'll be needing another "bubble bath" soon.
This is my near daily photography web log. I got interested in photography in high school and have been taking shots ever since. I am still developing techniques and honing my eye. I tend to gravitate toward macro shots, small subjects and low perspective. Have fun digging through the blog and looking at old posts. You will see that I have worked through different processing, framing and display techniques along the way. It's all in an effort to learn something new. All of these photos were taken with minimal equipment and consumer level cameras. You can do any of this with your camera too. Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment or ask a question. Let's learn this stuff together.
