My Fly Reel

Posted by
Jerry (Tampa, United States) on 19 February 2007 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

I love fly fishing! I no longer have the time to fish as much as I would like to. But growing up, it was my main passion. This is an "Everglades" model made by Ted Juracsik on the east coast of Florida - they make the finest fly fishing reels in the world! Big thanks to Suby for assistance on border!

Canon EOS 30D 1/60 second F/4.0 ISO 400 60 mm

I like the way the light falls on this one.

I don't know too much about fly fishing, but it always looks so calm when I see it portrayed on TV.

Hi Jerry.
Thanks for your comment on my site. Made me browse through yours too. I like this one especially, but as you might have guessed, I have a certain feeling about macros.
Another thing: Your passion for your wife Linda shines through several of your pics. Wonderful:-)
