Looks like a peaceful and calm area.

Love the capture of the butterfly in flight in #3. The framing with the leaves in #5 appeals to me (I wonder how it would look if the outer edges were cropped a bit). There is a zen-like minimalism to #7 that I think really works well.

Regards

Often there is a flyfisher standing somewhere where there is space enough (this side) Yes, I tried a crop of number five

To my eye, the crop seems to emphasize the framing of the leaves/branches in the foreground.

Looks like a nice spot to cast a fly or two. Do the fly fishers wade or fish from the bank?

Yes, you're right. I like multiple 3D like layers of foliage - seems you do too

My primary language is picture taking, so ....

All methods are allowed, even more unorthodox, but the river is long ... I don't what you say to a fisherman on the other side of the pond but over here it's absolute forbidden to say good luck. Superstition

I suppose you can translate this; "Skitfiske på dig", at least the first word

So if you'll be out there, where ever it is, "Skitfiske på dig"

Regards

Looks like he is using a two-handed rod, spey rod I think is the term used in England. If he is after salmon he probably needs the heavier tackle.
Thanks for adding the photo.

There really was a need for the two-handed as I want to show in the last two pictures in this sinuous thread. Thanks for following. Much appreciated
