Does anyone bring a fishing rod for surf casting if the beach is near? Something else to do at the beach during the most exciting saltwater fishing time of the year (the spring & early summer striper run).
Yesterday I was viewing photographs taken by fishermen on the S.O.L (Striper's On Line) fishing forum. Some were what looked like fine art B&W photos. Many were typical and very good beach scenes at sunrise/sunset and shots of trophy catches, but mixed in were some of the most amazing photographs I've seen anywhere; photos of objects, structures, people silhouetted by low lying sun shining through wood fence (my favorite), atmospheric phenomenon, for some examples, and many other excellent compositions in all seasons.
These are people who never mention photography in there threads but some have the eye for it (and friendly like photographers). They don't talk about photo equipment, only fishing gear. I was blown away by many of the shots. Now I'll always pack my camera when I go fishing with my son - sometimes I forget to when my mind is on one track. I'm at that forgetful age.
