Teach a man to fish…
and he’ll eat for a lifetime.
Photography in late Winter in the lower mainland of BC is a dodgy endeavor. If there’s a nice day to be had, I’m out with my camera snapping as many shots as possible. The next day might be crappy, like today. Yesterday, there were short bursts of rain, but the day was more win than lose.
Around here, if there’s sun, there’s fishermen. There were a great number of men out in the water yesterday. None of them seemed to be catching much, but they reminded me of that movie A River Runs Through It. There is something very Zen about standing in cold water up to your knees manipulating hand-made flies over shallow water to entice a fish to bite. Most of it seems like action with no purpose other than beautiful, slow movement. Makes for interesting photos, though.
