My husband has recently taken up fly fishing. He’s always loved regular casting fishing, but he has always wanted to try fly fishing. Last weekend, we headed up to the High Unita Mountains and the Upper Provo River for him to get in some practice and try out some new flies a friend had made for him. This amazing world we live in and on has so many places for fun recreation and play. This week, get your fun on and share what you enjoy doing to relax or get the adrenaline pumping.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) THAT SHOW FUN, RECREATION, OR ADVENTURE SEEKING.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Your husband and mine would get on well! Mine loves both fly fishing and sea fishing – any fishing actually – he’d even like Simple Simon fish in his mother’s pail.
🙂 Yes, they would get along great!
Looks really beautiful there, nancy. 🙂
It is! We love this area of Utah. 🙂 Thanks, Sylvia!
I’d have it all tangled up if it were me lol! It does look fun though! 😃
I would, too! Or caught in one of the trees or bushes. 🙂
Lovely serene photo! My post this week also has a water theme: https://marshaleith.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/a-photo-a-week-challenge-recreation/
Beautiful picture. I’ve always admired the art of fly fishing, though never had any interest in actually doing it. But it does seem about as relaxing a way to spend time as anything could be.
My husband is thoroughly enjoying it, even when he doesn’t catch anything. 🙂
What a beautiful spot, Nancy. Reminds me of Wyoming. 🙂
This spot isn’t too far from the Wyoming/Utah border, maybe 60 miles along the Mirror Lake Highway.
Beautiful place to visit. Fishing needs a lot of patience I think.
Especially fly fishing. 🙂 Thanks!
What a lovely place!
Truly wonderful 🙂
I really love that photograph. Such beautiful colors!
Thanks, Luna! It was a beautiful morning. 🙂
That looks like a very soothing activity and a nice spot.
Here’s my post for this week’s challenge: https://wordpress.com/post/elostravels.wordpress.com/1006
I have only fished twice in my life: the first time with my brother in the UK. It rained almost the entire time and I caught a newt by its tail. The second was in South Africa where I caught nothing but dreadful sunburn on my shins!
Although your photograph makes it look very relaxing.
These days I content myself by collecting fish in the form of koi.
BTW have you seen the film Salmon Fishing in the Yemen?
If not , I highly recommend it.
Get outdoors and do it! Whatever you enjoy, it’s better when you participate. Yes, I vike, and paddle, but haven’t sailed in years.
