I thought I would make my first post for 2013 a bit of an overview of what I hope to achieve this year. Firstly, if you have read the about page, you may have noticed I have never attempted to get an artice or my images published in any of the flyfishing publications. Well, by the end of 2013, I am hoping that you will be able to open one or more of them up and see my work in print. Of course when that happens I will keep you informed.
As for the exciting bit, the adventure and flyfishing - well, I have a number of trips in mind. The main one as far as I am concerned is Exmouth in Wester Australia. I hope to spend about 3 weeks there and am hoping to spend a few days fishing with guides and a lot of time exploring the flats with a fly rod in hand. If all goes well, I would love to catch my first bonefish and permit, as well as a heap of other firsts on this trip. Those two species will probably require the help of Brett Wolf of True Blue Bonefish.
Here are a couple of videos that are from the True Blue Bonefish site.
Apart from trips, I will hopefully be purchasing some new camera gear over the coming months (I'm still researching and having some difficulty making a final decision, hence the lack of Part 2 of my "Perfect Camera System" post. Fear not, after a little more thought Part 2 will come. I will also be buying some lighting equipment if all goes to plan, but that isn't overly relevant, however it will allow me to get better shots of products that I photograph and present on the blog.
So there is a bit of an idea of what will be happening. Obviously I will continmue to fish in more local waters as well, and will hopefully have a heap of fishing stories, and lots of relevant "other stuff" to present to you all. It certainly will be a busy year!
If you are interested in fishing for the bonefish and permit of Exmouth, despite not having met him myself, I would not hesitate to reccommend Brett Wolf as he has a fantastic reputation.
