    Default Fly in fishing

    It has been pretty hectic at work and at home lately so I have not made it out as much as I hoped. These shots are from a couple weeks ago when a friend flew my son and I into his cabin for a 4 day fishing trip. It was awesome! We caught tons of pike and a few nice laketrout!


    The last day on the lake we woke up to a foggy morning.

    Our home for 4 days.

    My son with the largest lake trout of the trip.

    One of the trout we caught in an underwater shot!

    A nice pike on a rattletrap.

    The river flowing out of the lake.

    A dead red salmon carcass from last years spawn lays on the bank of the stream. There were hundreds of these all over the place.

    The end of our journey!

    Boy Cory, looks like your new underwater gear worked great! Great shots! What lens did you use on the shot of the plane with the cabin? Eric

    Yes it did! I am really looking forward to photographing the salmon which is what I bought it for mostly. All the shots on this page with the exception of the last one was taken with the 16-35mm 2.8. The last one was the 80-200mm.

    All really nice shots ...but, the under water images are great. I will have to try that on the salmon this fall.

    For my limited use I chose the bag type housing by EWA Marine. They are not the easiest to use, but the price was right for now. I may get a better housing in the future if I sell many under water images.

    I was using the 16-35mm f2.8 with a 77mm filter thread. You could also use the 28-70mm f2.8 or any other lens about that size or smaller body with 77mm or less filter rings. They make adapters that will adapt any lens up to the 77mm size.
