Swallow under the Hunter’s Moon

With the help of Jim Hohler, I was able to shoot this last night as the sun was setting. These are hundreds of thousands of swallow birds doing a tornado dance as they ready themselves to roost for the night. This phenomenon only happens about two weeks out of the year and I was lucky enough to be there one night when it happens. Enjoy.

Salty Fly 2012 updates


I don’t think I have had time to actually fish for almost three weeks. I just got done doing a trip to Titusville down the Keys then back home. Mostly to visit sponsors for the Salty Fly which is now a 3 day event. Once I got home it was time to work on the flies.
