Seasons end

Hi Guys
I want to thank you all, especially Sean, for your support this season. My season is over due to disappearing darks skies. Living under the midnight sun has its pros and cons, so its time to pack up and make room for my summer hobbies. Greenhouse needs cleaning and my fishing gear dusting off. Sad to put away my equipment just as I was getting things to run smoothly. Its been a troublesome season with a lot of mechanical problems on top of really bad weather. Now that I’ve taken the diction to stop imaging I’m glad for all the rain and snow because the rivers will remain big through the summer and the salmon will be swimming. Hoping to break my record of 15kg on fly rig.
Again, thank you. I’ll still be looking at your posts.

Re: Seasons end

Ken it's been really great to see you grow. You might want to make a journal of all the steps you do to get setup because I went thee months without shooting and found out that most of the little things were on my short term memory. Ha ha

I had a hard time getting proficient. Hey why don't you do some time lapse stuff or maybe buy a Rhino Slider like I did and get into some fun photography until darkness returns. I'm going to stay in touch. Post your fishing shots either here or at http://www.redstickastro.com

Re: Seasons end

Good luck with the fishing. Its almost Bass season here. Well its always Bass season but summer and fall bring lots!!!I have not had the boat out in a year so I will take it in soon for a check up before heading out. I also head to the mountains for some trout fishing. We have a cabin a couple hours north in the high country so it makes for a nice little get away.

Post some river pics and hopefully some Salmon pics, even if its not a record.

Enjoy, Rick
