Fishing the Bahama Flats


Sam Sifton and photographer Chris Ramirez report on the narcotic effect of chasing bonefish in the Bahamas.

THERE are times in this world when you want to get lost, well and truly out of your head, and find yourself vulnerable and laughing amid real, untrammeled beauty and hardship and life.

With the PMA show scheduled for the first week in March manufacturers are busy releasing details of their new 2009 models. I'm waiting for Pentax to announce their new W70, I'm still sporting the W30 which has served me really well on the water over the years.

New Panasonic Waterproof Shooter


Panasonic jumps into the waterproof/shockproof point and shoot fray.

Nearly every aspect of the TS1 was designed with rugged use in mind: the airtight shell, reinforced with rubber padding, glass and carbon resin is purported to protect the camera during underwater use at depths of up to ten feet and falls onto a hard surface from five.

Now for the spec pile: the TS1 shoots stills at 12.1 megapixels and video at 1080p. effective lens length is an ample 28mm-128mm, the aperture opens to a 3.3-5.9 maximum size, ISO notches all the way up to 6400 and the maximum shutter speed is 1/1300. A 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot LCD adorns the back of the slim(ish) 3.87 x 2.49 x 0.91 body, and the standard facial recognition, image stabilization and creative mode features are all present.

Available in April -  Suggested Retail $400

Merry Christmas from Christmas Island

Chum contributor and photographer Tim Pask, dug up some photos that have 2 things in common.  All the photos were taken on Christmas Island over the Christmas Holidays, and each of them ended up being Photo Chum....


Sonya Pask being released by a Giant Trevally.  She barely made it out alive.


Angler Eddie Sadvar, with a Golden Trevally.  He later went on to star in all the GIECO "Even a caveman can do it" commercials.


This GT eventually ended up stealing the rod.  Hey Mr. Giant, if your seeing this I forgive you and you can keep the rod, but please return my Tibor.  I miss it.  Angler Eddie "Caveman" Sadvar.


Before Eddie got his GIECO roll, he spent time portraying Popeye the Sailor.  He never mastered the squinty eye thing, but the GT's were amused.


Photographer Tim Pask displaying a small GT.  Photo by Eddie Sadvar.  Note: Tim Pask now uses Allstate insurance.


So to all of us LOSERS who are not spending Christmas on Christmas, this L's for us!  Sonya Pask, and the world famous Simmon Corrie.

Images from B.C. - The Fish

The beauty of the B.C. landscape was more than matched by the beauty of the fish.


I love this shot.

Steely eye.


Let's here it for the boys.


Just had to have the dry.


The yellow leading edge of the pectoral fin on this fish was striking.

Images of B.C.

Last week's trip to the Bulkley in B.C. generated over a couple of hundred photos so we're going to do a three day series of posts starting with some of the landscape shots. Clicking on the photo will enlarge them to full size.

The first day Case walks the tracks to the boat stashed up river.


Bennett throws one of the week's couple thousand casts.


One of the highlights of the trip was a float down the Bulkley Canyon where we did not see another soul.



The mornings were cold and foggy but things would quickly clear as the sun burned through.




The Bulkley has miles and miles of beautiful steelhead holding water.


I caught a 34 inch hen in this run just after this picture was taken.


Tomorrow we'll post some shots of the fish.
