    Maria Trip Reports

    Maria has been repaired and is back in service.. Thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread for her new adventures.....
    She arrived to central Wyoming this week looking as good as new. It didn't take long to get her some action... More to come before shipping out again.

    Adipose gave me a quick handoff with Maria at 5 in the morning with a cup of coffee. Had fun fishing the New Maria. She would like to chuck meat! Here are a few rewards we reaped. Welcome to Wyoming!

    DAMN Adipose! I have seen steelhead smaller than that! Way to do Maria proud! That is a fish of a lifetime. Now, I am off to go chase the likes all weekend. See you on the river brother man!

    Maria arrived here a few days ago. We had one failed saltwater trip the day after arrival and this weekend got rained on, but in a last minute trip to the pond, we scored.

    A few pics:

    This was white


    I don't want to keep her too long, so let me know who's up and I'll send her along.

    Panny GH2 w/20mm f1.4. bought it for video, but stills aren't too bad either. i actually really like the stills with an older nikon 50mm 1.8


    edit - changed 14 to 20mm. Panny does make a 14mm, but this wasn't it.
