Saltyshores June 2011 Updates and News, Photography Seminar, Mojo 425 reel by Cheeky


As you can see I have been busy here on Saltyshores revamping the website and facebook pages. We have added over 100 more fans just in the last few days to the FB page. Between doing all and the weather being on the windy side there has not been much fishing to do on my part.

Photography wise I did do a wedding shoot yesterday on the beaches of Manasota Key in Englewood Florida with Brandy and Steve. Here are a couple of photos from the shoot but if you want to see the rest of them go to my “non fishing” photography website

The Wall paper went over great and there will be more here shortly. I will get wall paper from our contributors to showcase and you guys to use at least once a month.

Photo Seminar in Tampa June 11th 2011
I will be putting on a free one hour photography seminar over at Flint Creek Outfitters in Tampa June 11th 2011 at 1pm.

I will be going over how to get most out of your point and shoot and and you DSRL.

  • How to set ISO, aperture, shutter speed
  • When to use flash
  • How to shoot in certain lighting conditions
  • Questions and answers etc.

Bring your camera, I’ll do my best to help if you have any questions.

New Fly reel on the market is the Cheeky Fly team is the Mojo 425 reel

Check it out, besides being round the design is very original looking. Never used one but from what I hear it’s pretty darn nice. One thing I do know is these guys are very passionate and are real fisherman. They flew down just to fish the Salty Fly tournament this last February.
