photo by a King

my dad, he is good!

essential fly

OK, Micro photos, yes. Taken from a expensive micro lens? Nooooo...those are micro function in the Pentax Optio 30. A point and shoot camera. Here is my opinion again.
I always say, before pursuing a good camera, got to know the camera you already have first. This is a hard lesson to myself also, I was a gear head! still is! But by knowing your/my camera, you got a tremendous advantage to get a big BANG from the hard earned money! This is essentially true for photography. In the past few years, condition not allow me to have my heavy duty equipment with me. But, there is nothing wrong with P$S cameras. It's about how you "see" it...the timing and how well you know the subject, how well you control the camera. I hate people complain they said their equipment is not good enough to take good photos... I always said, "maybe just your eye is not good enough..." ha..., of course those are my close friends, instead of punch me, they forgive me. : )

Those are 3 essential flies to me. Rock worms, Baetis mayflies and caddis pupae! Whatelse you need to catch a trout?! How to use them is another story...

deer hair attractors

yes...i do have some dry flies...see... i am getting into a good shape... Those caddis attractors are tied from deer hair...can't last long afloat, but when it submerged under the surface, it still as deadly as it should be... easy to tie and easy to cast...

i know it is "a bit" too early to think about retirement... ha... but I have been thinking about it lately because some people around me are right on this stage. To me, this would be a self-explanatory perfect photo. Beer, Tea and all the fun thing happen in between!! Congratulations to the people that are on the retirement! (Dad, yes... I am talking about you! : ))
