Camera "Malfunction" Fishing the Caney Friday

The title of this post pretty much sums up the mishap that occurred while landing lots of stocker size trout early Friday morning. In fact today’s trip was my best this year for the trout count on the Caney——-but a minus count when it came to camera work.

 I dropped my camera in the water while trying to take a picture of one the rainbows I landed. I knew it was gone when I couldn’t get it to turn back on, needles to say I lost all the images of today’s trip.

 

A short recount of the morning trip, arriving early at 6:30 and was meet by lots of other fishermen and a super cloud of fog on the water. I started fishing with size 20 midge using an indicator in 2 to 3 ft. -depths. I got to touch a few rainbow, using the tiny fly, but as usual I kept losing too many to to continue fishing with it. So mid morning I decided to go with an 18 size midge. The 18 size proved to be my success ticket. I landed numbers of trout standing on a shallow sandbar and letting the midge drift into two seams, one to the left of the sandbar and the other flowing in at an angle; where the two deeper seams meet was the sweet spot. I know I landed at least a dozen trout in that one spot.
 I would land a few more browns and rainbows fishing small pockets closer to where my truck was parked before the generator forced me to leave. All the trout today was not anything larger than 12” but lots of fun to land using my 4 wt. 9 ft. Redington.

 So I’m looking for a new waterproof camera, any suggestions???

Previewing The Contour Roam 2 Video Camera

No fishing here for the past couple of weeks due to heavy rains just about everyday. Rivers are out of their banks and the lakes are 2 to 3 feet above full pool. Reading, watching Contour Roam 2 videos and thinking about fishing has consumed most of my time during this monsoon period . I decided to purchase the camera yesterday. I’m looking forward to putting it to good use in the coming weeks. I won’t go into the buying and returning the GoPro I thought I wanted to use. I’ll just say the Contour is leaps and bounds ahead of the GoPro when being used as a helmet camera, because of its low profile. I can actually use the Contour attached to one of my caps, without movement. LET THE RAIN STOP!!


Side Note: This is my second Roam 2 Contour I’ve purchased. I decided in 2015 I wanted to film some of my fishing trips so the Contour was my choice of cameras then as it is now. My nephew is enjoying using my first camera.

Welcome to the 2017 
New England Fishing Season

Experience the Very Best Fly Fishing Instruction and Guiding Programs


Based on science, and years of teaching and guiding, one-on-one or small group programs are the best educational experiences.  Therefore, we do not herd people into traditional large group (e.g., 5-20 people) weekend classes. Depending on which service you pick, we never teach more than four people per event.

We offer single-day and multi-day programs that are 100% customized to meet your skill level and developmental needs.  We can teach you how to cast single and two-hand rods up to 100 feet, but we prefer to teach you how to be deadly accurate within 60 feet.  Also, we teach basic to advance dry-fly, wet-fly, streamer, and indicator and tight-line nymph fishing techniques. 

Your instructors and guides have decades of experience on and off the river.  We are professionally trained and certified to be both educators and guides.  We have passed state and national criminal background checks. Outside of fishing, we are educated professionals, holding advance degrees.  Your instruction will be highly active and personal -- no classroom lectures or videos.  You will be working with excellent communicators -- the key to great instruction.


Casting and Guiding Programs 


Single Hand or Two Hand Rods
  • On land and in a river (i.e., not a casting pond -- we put you in real casting situations).
  • Available seven days per week, at your convenience -- we don't herd people into large classes, typically held on weekends.
  • Create your own group and save money.
