South Aussie Rise

"South Aussie Rise"
South Aussie Rise is the first of my artistic trout fishing photographs. I hope to grow a series of work based on the magic that is experienced while fly fishing for these wonderful fish. I hope you all enjoy this image, and the others as I share them as the series slowly grows. This photograph was taken with my new Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the M.Zuiko Digital 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens. I never ended up reviewing my Canon EOS 1Dx cameras on here, or any of the amazing L series lenses that I use with them because I decided after use that they are just not really practical for most fishing photography. The Olympus offers up exceptional image quality in a relatively tiny package. It certainly won't replace my Canon gear for my more serious work, but I suspect that as far as what's on the market now, the OM-D E-M1 is possibly my ideal fishing and travel camera, and possibly the one to take to Flywater X!

Through the Photo Archives

Well, it's been a while since I've posted as I haven't been out on the water much lately. What I have been doing is going through all my old photos and re-organising them. In the process I have found a heap of old photos of fishing trips past, and thought that I should share some with you all until I have something new to post in the not too distant future.

These first couple are from a day on the water with David Anderson and Peter Morse in summer  '08/'09 fishing for Australian bass in a New South Wales river. Unfortunately we didn't catch any, however I did miss a surface strike on a prototype fly I was trying. Looking at these reminds me I still need to head back east at some point to catch one of these beautiful fish.
