As often happens early in the Fall season, trips up north are last second decisions based on current conditions and reports. Adam's encouraging trip mid-week combined with crazy posts of massive numbers of king salmon on the move, forced us to make the trip. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend of weather and fishing. We caught the tail end of the run and fished the DSR looking for fresh fish willing to take flies on the swing. We caught some, lost more, and were able to get a ton of pictures.
When I returned, I couldn't wait to put up the pictures on the big screen. I literally had some of the best photo opportunities of my life. What I found was a big disappointment. I unknowingly had the Iso settings on my camera affixed around 6400. Pictures that looked crisp and sharp on the LCD were super grainy and noisy. In the coming days, you'll see some of those pictures and read about our experiences during a pretty epic run of fish.
