Beautiful comp, and the lighting is excellent! The clarity and detail are perfect too. While I have never been fly fishing, I love to fish. This would look so great hanging in a cabin on the lake, or in any fisherman/fisherwoman's (Ha)home! Congrats on your POTD! #4249678

Tom Andersen May 05, 2007

Carol, if you've never been fly-fishing you are missing out on a truly great sport. I guarantee you will never be bored. If you enjoy a challenge and have the patience to learn, you'll not be disappointed. Find yourself a good teacher and you'll have a great time!

Thanks so very much for your comments. I appreciate them very much. #4249713
