I'm one of those people that love to keep learning and also love outdoor activities. I taught myself woodworking to the point of building fine furniture. My 2 car garage is now a full blown wood shop. I learned all about home repair and electrical work, so I do just about everything myself.I taught myself fly fishing, fly tying and now I make custom fly rods and other fishing rods. In 2010 I bought an acoustic and electric guitar and taught myself to play but I'm still learning. In 2012 I bought a real SUV that will go through or over anything and then I bought a kayak and rigged it for fishing. It has a 7" Lowrance HD that has GPS and sonar for finding the fish. So now I travel around kayak fishing. I live on the NJ Shore so I do a lot of saltwater fishing with my kayak. I had a 24' Pro-Line Center Console boat but Hurricane Sandy took her away from me. I have a couple of fly fishing trips planned. One to the Catskill Mountains in upstate NY to fish the Upper Delaware River, the Beaverkill and the Willowemoc. Then it's off to central Pennsylvania to fish a few of the famous limestone spring creeks. I'm just learning how to spey cast using a 12'switch rod so I can go up to the Salmon River and a few of the other fantastic Lake Ontario tributaries in the fall to catch salmon and the mighty steelheads. I tied up a bunch of nice flies over the last few days for Striped Bass, Weakfish and Bluefish. So I think I'll be heading out for some saltwater fly fishing the next few mornings in my kayak. I did also teach myself photography and used to develop all my own film and print my pictures in a darkroom. I still have all the equipment for nostalgic reasons but I bought several roles of film that I want to shoot and develop the negatives at least. I am a pro level photographer and right now I'm learning to shoot very long exposure shots with 10X and sometimes 15X neutral density filters. I do a lot of beach shots of the ocean at different times of day starting just before sunrise and finish at twilight. When there's awesome clouds moving to go along with the motion of the water and depending on the time of day and how bright the sun is, the exposures can go from 15-30 seconds at noon to several minutes to 45 minutes to hours depending on time of day and the ND filter I have on. I'd love to carry this over to Astro Photography but I don't want to buy a telescope. I have to get few book on the subject. I know you can get some great shots with just your long telephoto lenses and your camera on a tripod.
