Sight Fishing


Jacob from Ocala, Fla. Daily Blog has asked to see some fish pictures from my recent trip to British Columbia. I have camped and fished in this region of Canada for twenty-seven years and have had many moments of wonderment while casting a fly for the beautiful trout which cruise the lake's depths and weed beds After careful consideration, I selected a sunset photo at HiHuim Lake near Kamloops in which a large grey cloud fish arcs its back and glides gracefully through the endless rose and mauve air current pond. This fish is beautiful and delicate, smooth and elusive and serves a symbol to remind us of those swimming below. It is a remarkable gift from a profound native spirit which abides in this realm and offered in a quiet breathless moment for the eye (I) to behold.

Zounds! What a catch! That is incredible and much more of a fish than I had hoped for...thanks!

Takes a good eye, Lee. Stunning shot and Lois Anne would agree re: "profound native spirit" ...

Have a great day!
