Got out this morning to a beautiful warm, cloudy day and headed to No-Name Creek for some really small stream fishing. The headwaters are so small and tight that I never casted from a standing position. Either a full crouch or on the knees -- never had more than 2-3 feet of fly line out with a 7 1/2 foot leader. Every fish hit a dry fly (14 EHC) and it's the middle of February! I caught 5 brookies -- the largest was between 7 1/2 to 8 inches. Fine healthy little colored-up fish.
My Pentax camera doesn't work. I took the cellphone and took pictures (I thought). When I got back to the car, nary a picture took. I was hitting some wrong button. Crap!
Oh, well. You can believe me or not. All in all, it was a very good morning. My first brookie stream in over 6 months. It's good to be back fishing again.

Glad you got out Phil! We need to work on your camera skills friend. Not for the believing part, It's just nice to have some memories of those kinda days.

I know, Bob. I'm going to buy a new camera (leaning towards the Olympus TG-4). Now I'll have another thing I can't figure out how to use. :?

Mashed the wrong buttons-- Hell, that is Ralph's fault.
Your new camera will come with a 274 page owners operating manual :o :o Hopefully it will have a 15 page "start up " manual. That is for old dumb shits (like me ) :mrgreen:

All of it will be on the computer. I have the TG3 and love it but it does more than I need. Can't understand it all.

The Olympus doesn't come with a printed owner's manual? The instructions are on the computer disc? Oh, no. I run Linux on my 'puter and the software disc that comes with their cameras only works on Windows and Mac.
Maybe I should rethink buying a new camera....

Go to the library, use their computers, check out the directions and print the pages you want.

Glad to see your wife out and about Phil!

Ralph :D ;)

You use your WEB browser to search for the .pdf version of your manual. Download it and read in in gwenview. Shouldn't be a problem.
