Fly fishing for Stripers

O'Niel Forebay, Los Banos, California

"I was alone on the boat. My boat is narrow and not real long. I had to set up the camera
as far away as possible (where it is far harder to look through the view finder) and I
risked me and the camera falling in the water. I am NOT the most coordinated person. I had
to start the timer, climb over fishing gear, get up on the casting deck and grab the rod
and, oh yeah, and get that back leg up. You begin to understand why it took a lot of shots
to get this good one.

"The weather reports said rain and wind. I lucked out and had this beautiful calm day."

Thanks to Tim for phooning (and for the photo idea).
