I got home from my northwoods adventures late Saturday night, and headed to the airport early on Sunday. The snow on the car ride home (thanks for being a safe driver, Linn!) made me even more excited to get out to Florida for some work. It was a whirlwind two days of shooting on Captiva and Sanibel Islands. I took photos for several different publications when I was down there, all focused on saltwater fly fishing.
Big water, big rod, big teeth.
That’s a speckled sea trout. I think I’ve seen that fish before… I’m pretty sure he was in the cast of True Blood.
Ladyfish galore. They’re incredibly acrobatic, which makes them fun to watch and even more fun to catch. Hey, I didn’t have to work the whole trip!
I went all sorts of crazy places… with snakes, snails, crabs, and gators. Yeah, I’m a sundress-wearing badass.
The resort that I stayed at had a hermit crab race. Yes, really.
We stopped at the fly shop to get tips and tricks… Any place with a fish on the sign is good, in my book.
I left a cryptic message for future generations…
…and captured my last sunset on the water. That storm rolled in shortly after sundown, and my short, sweet trip was over.

One adventure after another. Thanks for sticking with me, friends!
