Anyone who has ever tried to take a photo that captures both the angler and the fish he’s fighting knows that you need to hit the shutter many, many times and hope one of the images works out. I think Josh Fitz nailed this picture of a client at Alaska’s Crystal Creek Lodge hooked up with a feisty salmon. (Is that a coho or a pink?) You can see the angler and his buddy pre-hook-up below.
