An interest in photography is teachng me to keep my eyes open for the next good "capture". But not everyone would agree that taking a camera with you when fishing is a good idea. I remember one Internet friend, a professional photographer, saying he didn't take a camera while fishing because if he were armed with both a flyrod and a camera he wouldn't be good at using either one.

I took Friday to go fishing on the Miller's River in central Massachusetts. The smallies are becoming a bit more active and I caught a bunch especially behind exposed boulders. I also managed to land four rainbows, all on the simple beadhead shown below, while casting upstream under a foam strike-indicator. Coming back down-river I swung and stripped a number of bugger style flies and only picked up one smallie with this tactic.
