Nikon D850 Update from Barry
I can't tell you how many images I’ve made with a Nikon camera in a lifetime of shooting, but I will tell you that from the first frame out of my new Nikon D850 I knew that I was shooting with the best camera ever. The D850 is incredibly fast at nine frames per second with the battery grip and the En-El18b battery, and the color and clarity of the images are over the top thanks to the 46 MP CMOS sensor.
Cathy and I have just returned from a month of hosting fly fishing trips in Argentina, so I put the D850 through its paces shooting in low light to fast action situations. It’s a dream to work with this camera. We will soon take a group to Mexico where we hope to shoot jumping tarpon shots, and I look forward to also shooting action video with the D850.
A Deliberate Life
We found this video on MidCurrent. It's a very thoughtful introspective look at what makes us happy in life – really happy, content....what feeds the soul. It's about 33 minutes and it took me all afternoon to view it because I kept getting pulled away from it with other things. But, what keeps coming to my simple mind is how do they pay the rent, eat, buy gas.....
I'd love to know more about these people. Who are they? Are they guides? What is their story – beyond the video? We seriously admire each of them and would love to know how they do it.
Someone out there must know these folks, they're obviously sensitive, gentle....focused people. Please give us your thoughts. Let us know what you think. Send us a sentence or two.
It's a very well done beautiful video. Makes me want to run off and pitch a tent on the river, but maybe I'll wait until summer.....
Hendricksons and Blue Quills are hatching here on Fishing Creek and the weather man promises that warmer weather is on the way. Spring is late in coming, but the stream is in great shape and fishing is good. Some warmer nights will kick our hatches into high gear and we'll soon see grannom caddis join the line-up of spring hatches.
