When the fish don't bite...
Lens: DA*16-50mm Camera: K-5 Photo Location: The Netherlands 
Posted By: Fries, 05-20-2012, 03:17 PM

...I take photographs! And even when they do bite I still take photo's.

1. On dry land


2. Strike!


3. Don't wait for the fish to come to you...


4. Result (the fish was released back)


5. The lone fisherman


6. Fishy perspective


Thanks for looking!

Nice series. I like 3 and 6 the best but you should be proud of all of them.

#1 is definitely commercial. I would shop that one around. Good angles, nice shots showing something different.

Bob thanks! I posted the first one once before on this forum but I just couldn't leave it out of this series.

Thanks Jim! Both are from the same fishing session wading in the river.

Lauren you are the second one to say something about the commercial value of the first picture. I think you have a point there! I am only on my third year with a DSLR and it is very encouraging to get comments like this.

Another fisherman! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Isn't fishing and photography it a wonderful combination?! Chances you end up at a beautiful place seem to go up considerably when you fish and even more with fly fishing. This fish is a rather recent addition to our fish species and comes from Eastern and Central Europa. I think the English name is Asp and in Latin 'Aspius Aspius'.

Charlie thanks! I think shooting so close to the water helped me to get that expansive look. The grip was touching the water...

Cheers,

Remco

Exactly! Thanks for the ID--it looks a lot like our Striped Bass (except, of course, for the lack of stripes ;~)

UPDATE: After a bit of Googling I see the resemblance is not as strong as it seems in your photos. I came a cross some videos of a guy fighting one of those with a fly rod--looks like a strong fish.

Dave these are very quick fish and very often you have to fish the bait rather fast. The attack of such a fast lure can really be quite brutal... It's a adrenaline enhancing sport!
