    CovingtonFly, I have an issue with your photo...your charcoal briquets are not quite ready for cooking, some are still mostly black. Let 'em grey and ash up a bit then you are set to go.

    pics are good, but not of every fish and certainly not posting pics of every fish. it's a little much and a beer sounds really good about now. the only negative thing i have to say about cameras is that it seems that a lot of times when i do have a good fish on, as soon as i think about fumbling with the camera to get it ready the fish throws the hook. nets to for that matter

    I BBQ'd a bunch of burgers before that and my heat was gettin low so threw a couple fresh briquets on top. Good eye though.
    I bought a propane weed burner at a garage sale for $5 that I use to start the coals with. It works slick as anything and it only takes 2-3 minutes.

    I like looking at fish pictures , in moderation . I always bring a waterproof digital with me , but no longer feel the need to document every fish I catch . And I fish alone quite a bit , so the circumstances have to be just right to persuade me to dig out the camera and snap a pic .

    What I absolutely despise are pictures of dead fish (unless they`re on the b.b.q:D) . If I wanted to see dead fish , I`d walk over to Safeway . I also hate the cliche' shots , like the ones with the guy with the rod stuffed in his yap , or even worse , the guy has the rod cradled over the back of his neck . The long-arm extension does`nt do much for me either .

    I know what you are talking about. when you stake out a hole and target the fish, then manage to get him to strike, it is the experience to make that happen. The photo is your prize and only you know what you went through to make that happen. Most fishing photos are just pictures and mean little if anything to most people viewing them. There are some wonderful photos of some marvelous fish but alone they are empty. The ones that are posted with the story that went with the catch are much more interesting than the ones without especially if the story teller is good. Kinda of like watching a movie without the sound.
