Take a lot, one is bound to turn out halfway decent. That's my SOP anyhow.

With technology so accessible and affordable these days, you'd have to be Merg to not get a decent fishing now and then.

There are some good tid bits in your article Ifishak and good on ya for putting in the effort and getting something "out there."

One of the most common mistakes I see with regard to fishing photos is not considering your light source. Light can be tricky as we don't often have much of it to work with when the fishing is good. Winter steelheading or the early/late bites for example. A quick second to consider where your light is coming from and how to use it effectively can turn a photo from mediocre into awesome.

Another lesson learned, put some effort into it. The perspectives that we are all used to seeing are rarely the most interesting (read eye level and looking down). To get intriguing images you have to work for them and put yourself in uncomfortable positions from time to time.

And finally, there is no substitute for good gear. No amount of editing can replace quality from the beginning.

Happy snapping.

+ 1,000 what Coley said. I might add, get closer, fill the frame than shoot at least 10 of everything.

Or in your case, keep your face out of the photo entirely.

And try to think about the fish a little if you're going to release it. No reason to keep it out longer than you have to. This isn't America's Next Top Model. The fish don't want the exposure they want the water. Keep them under it for as long as possible and out of it for as little as possible.
