    Hi,

    Are you sure that's really what it purports to be?

    So this is what they call "fly-fishing"?

    From the angle of the photo it's obvious that the boat it was taken on had already come down off that wave. Similar photos have been taken of Coast Guard ships on training cruises off Cape Disappointment on our West Coast.

    Do you mean to suggest that the photo was faked?

    Hi,

    I was trying to determine if this is a genuine as seen pic or it has been played with a bit to give it that "special" effect.

    Either way, it doesn't look like it was going to be a good day of fishing.

    Resulting in a cancelled fishing tournament and a lot of damaged boats.

    I would suggest genuine but posed it may have even taken several passes to get it right.. ;)
