I’ve been taking a lot of pictures while on the water in the last couple of weeks. We haven’t seen many fish rising, so I watch the river to see what catches my eye. I pack a couple extra lenses with me and pull them out to capture a variety of pictures. Thanks for all the comments and compliments about my Rainbow eating a Green Drake series. Here is my latest images from the water. I hope you enjoy the variety.

Look closely and you can see the trout’s eye and open mouth. The Green Drake is out of focus in the open mouth as the trout almost breaks the water.
