    I was going to stop and fish in my favorite place, but we have had snow the last two nights and I drive a two wheeled drive pick-me-up. I don't drive into areas with more than three inches of snow. I know my limitations.

    Being a big proponent of making the most of things, I put my iPhone in a zip-lok snack bag. Voila, dustproof, waterproof, phone/camera...:cool:

    My cell phone is just for talking. Those high tech phones are smarter than I am. Gave back the one I tried to use.

    Yup, phones are for making phone calls. Cameras are for taking photos.

    I have been known to even put my phone in a sock, then inside a small tupperware container, for hike-in fishing. It's also my GPS and (electronic) map.

    Make sure that you keep all your receipts and register it within 30 days-My pentax optio WG-1 packed it in within 3 days on the Cook Islands 2 weeks ago.The WG-1 is an older version the newer being the WG-2-looks like others have had good luck with theirs however.
    A trick I did not know about until I talked to the camera shop was if the seals failed in salt water immerse the camera in fresh water with a little dish soap for a few hours/rinse with clean fresh water and then[I knew about this] put it in a Zip Lock of uncooked Rice
    good luck with your new camera.

    Holy crap! You changed your avitar....I didn't know who you were! You are definately too old for this technology, suggest you hire a landscape painter to follow you around....he can make the fish look bigger!.......

    I don't have to worry about salt water as I live about 600 miles from it.

    The reason I bought it is that I'm a klutz when trying to take pictures of fish. This camera fits in the palm of my hand and in my shirt pocket when not taking pictures. I will have a lanyard around my neck attached to the camera. I had a digital(Olympus Stylus) take a swim in the Yakima when I fished it before I moved to Montana. I fished it out and took the battery and the card out and didn't turn it on until it dried out. It still works. That was about 7 years ago.

    Not really. Got some shots of the Big Hole with the ice cover coming off and the snow we had last weekend. If it warms up above 36 tomorrow, I'll go hit the Beaverhead. Got to see if there are still a few browns around.

    I found a web site for Batteries for my new toy. The price is about 1/3 the cost of Pentax batteries. Now I'm set for picture taking.

    I disagree. I always have my phone; and it has an amazing camera.
    I don't always have my camera. And it has no phone.
    Time moves on; film has died, and cameras are now morphed into other devices.
    I'm not saying specialized devices aren't better in their time and place.
    I'm saying that the best camera is the one you have with you when you need it.

    I guess owning cameras is like owning fly rods. I now have 3 digital's and one 35mm. I think that I still have a Polorid. Got that camera back in the 50's
