Hooked my first Cod on Kodiak, AK

Never been much of a fisherman… but always relished the notion that fishing is a great excuse to do nothing. Three of my students during my 5-day workshop I’m teaching this week in Kodiak, AK took me out last night with hopes of catching something for dinner. And we did! A handful of huge cod ready for the grill! Here’s a glimpse of our awesome experience last night:wpid-kodiak_island_fishing_500mm_1-2011-06-16-07-261.jpgwpid-kodiak_island_fishing_500mm_2a-2011-06-16-07-26.jpgwpid-kodiak_island_fishing_500mm_3-2011-06-16-07-261.jpg This big guy was giving me the hairy eyeball. Wasn’t sure if he was jealous of our location, my wind-blown hairdo, my Nikon 500mm f/4 lens, my new Xtratuf boots, or the 7lb cod I’m holding in my hand. I feel blessed and thankful for all of them… but most of all great experiences and memories of my time so far on Kodiak. wpid-kodiak_island_fishing_500mm_4-2011-06-16-07-261.jpg Stay tuned for more images tomorrow!

    I saw the photo of you with your camera and the fish on Facebook… and to totally be real, it cracked me up. It looks like you’re saying “Hey there. Yeah, I’m shooting awesome photos. And this fish? Oh yeah, I just reached in and caught him. Just chillin’.” 😉 Awesome shots!

    Phenomenal pictures! By your photos the prose is not necessary. A picture is worth a thousand words! Just think… in two weeks you’ll be in Santorini! Be safe and continue the marvelous adventure! Thanks for sharing this with us! Love, DAD
