Ocean & Moose-Day out taking pictures

Took the opportunity to get out of the house with the wife and kids the other day, a little overcast but a nice mild day, compared to what we've been having here lately. These shots were taken 3 days ago, there's still alot of pack ice in the harbours and quite a bit of snow in the mountains, hopefully spring isn't too far away and evidence of that is the second picture, a cow moose grazing in the swamp looking for new growth shoots I'm assuming, or else she was just being nosey. She caused quite a traffic jam along the side of the road, luckily I had my camera out and ready to go. I'm going to be picking up and additional zoom lens for this camera, the moose was quite some distance from the road, so even with 300mm zoom it wasn't as close as I'd like it to be in the frame of the shot. Another lens should fix that problem.

I'll have to add the photos after, having some computer issues.

More Pictures Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum

Here are some more shots of the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum which was held March 31st and April 1st 2007 in Dieppe New Brunswick, Canada.

Author Don Maclean at the show, promoting his new book, A Little Thing I Tied Myself, a great book that I highly reccommend.

A shot of the fly tyer's table on Sunday, it was quieter on Sunday so I had a chance to take some pictures. World Champion Fly Tyer, Jerome Molloy standing under UNI banner at right.

Here's a shot of Fly Fusion Magazine's booth, they were quite busy spreading the word about their great magazine.

Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum

The Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum 2007 was dedicated to the memory of Warren Duncan, arguably the Best Hairwing Fly Tyer's in the World and from all the stories I've heard, one hell of a man and friend to many.

I had the pleasure of meeting Warren and watch him tie in 2005, I was in awe by his presence.

I was looking forward to doing the same this year, but unfortunately that didn't come to be as Warren passed away in February.

I had the opportunity to sit in on a tribute seminar at the show this weekend and I wish I had known this man as so many others had come to. Warren inspired me and his work will live on to inspire others.

Tight lines Dunc,

Will post more photo's.
