Re: Carrying around a DSLR for fishing?

Personally, i think all camera systems are a compromise compared to the speed, versatilty and quality of a dslr. On the other hand, some mirrorless camera systems do have some great features like the ability to sync at extreme high speeds when working with (off camera) flashes wich could result in d...

Re: Carrying around a DSLR for fishing?

Nice photos, Limpe! I'm assuming the OCF was to the left of the anglers? Did you put it on a tripod and use a light modifier, or was it just a straight flash? Looks great! absolutely, by the time you add up the weight it can get very heavy indeed! Do you use an external battery pack for the flash? ...

Re: Carrying around a DSLR for fishing?

Used to pack my DSLr gear on most trips, plus; great quality images, Minus; It consumes a lot of weight in the bagage package, body, some objectives, battery and charger, flash adds up to almost 7 to 8 KG's, changing objectives could result in dust on sensor, they are a pain to carry around, when wa...

Re: Climate Change

Still if we jump back to the core topic, I don’t think that people have been manipulated to disbelieve the reality of climate change. Rather I think that they’ve made a choice. That they then repost lies or manipulated facts to support their opinion, well that is in itself very interesting! I suppo...

Re: Climate Change

But back to the original point; I find it remarkable that this exists. Is this the future? If that’s what the connectivity of the Internet is going to become then isn’t it about time that social media platforms provided totally unbiased news? I’m not sure that’s even possible but there has to be a ...

The comments have got me thinking,when fishing in open water (no trees, bushes, high banks) i seldom look at the backcast, when casting an...

Re: basic question regarding tracking

Thanks again Paul, for your explanation! Got the plane game going, it's getting difficult when i reach the almost vertical plane since i have the tendency to look at every backcast i make wich is getting more difficult when the plane rises to a near vertical point ( i guess that's a leftover from ca...

basic question regarding tracking

So, one of my casting mistakes (i guess) is tracking. I learned casting with the rod sideways, most of the time holding the rod in a 45 degree angle, i have issues when i hold the rod upright (perfectly straight up). (learned casting on small streams where trees are abundant, an upright backwards st...

Re: Barbes vs barbless

What about hook-thickness?
Thinner hooks make smaller holes, less chance of losing that thinner hook (when keeping pressure)? Makes sense?

Depending on targeted species of course.

Re: Lanyard segmented neck foam

Google; Strap foam.
Eva round foam.

Also; camera straps, foam straps, sport shops and boating accessoiries.

Cutting up thick hollow foam and stringing it would make for a nice segmented strap;
