A few months ago I hit up my buddy Nik, an independent film maker and fly fishing addict, to head out to the mountains to capture some fly fishing action. We spent the day wading through the frigid water of the Loisach river in Garmisch, Nik hunting for trout and I hunting for nice images. For me it was an entirely new experience, I’ve gotto admit fishing is not really my thing, but for the first time I understood the attraction of it. Nik’s eyes lit up when he spotted a section of the river with deep, slow-flowing water: that is where the trout congregate. He made sure to sneak up inconspicuously, to stay down-stream, to not cast the fly like a mad man but to aim precisely and have patience. Fly fishing in particular takes skill, knowledge and experience and time flew by while we were on the river. Sadly the fishing season ended a few days later so I’ll have to wait until the Spring to head out again to resume the “hunt” for fish and photos. Here, in the mean time, some shots from my first fly fishing session.
