An Angling Photo Diary

20 Dec

Hemingford GreyOften in the shop, I meet parents who are introducing the sons and daughters to fishing, even though in many cases, they are not anglers themselves. I delight in this, suggesting it will teach their children many lessons-in-life, ones that they will carry forward into adulthood. It is not just the enjoyment of angling and pitching your wits against an unseen objective, which they will get pleasure from and talk about for days on end. Importantly, they will learn to appreciate the environment, and all Mother Nature has to offer. A big factor and learning curve are the consequence of stealth. Make no mistake, if you make a lot of noise when angling, not only will you spook the fish, but you’re likely to miss the wildlife too.

For me, second, only to snaring a big fish, are the immense skies you get when sitting by water. Moreover, if you are like me, and stay fishing for 24 hours plus, you witness the glorious sunrises and dramatic sunsets. One of the things I love is the early-morning mist that hovers over the windless sun kissed lake. For me, it somehow invigorates my imagination, creating a strangely buoyant mood.  Especially when you hear a splash and seconds later, ripples appear.

Where am I going with this? Well, one of the first things I pack when heading out on another jaunt is a fully charged up camera. By the way, I don’t do expensive cameras; just a standard 10 mega-pixel is enough for me. So, here is my photo angling diary, oddly not a fish in sight haha… I hope you enjoy, and hey, maybe you’ll get what I am on about 😉 SteveD – Go-Catch – No-Limits.

    Sometimes a picture can say far more than words can.
