Last Saturday was a good day for outdoor snapshots of people with assignments covering opening day of trout fishing season, an Easter egg hunt in Limerick and a homecoming celebration for a soldier.

It was a perfect day for trout fishing on a chilly and misty morning. The overcast sky was bright enough for even lighting giving me an opportunity to photograph fishermen from all angles.
I arrived at Hay Creek in Birdsboro shortly before lines were cast into the water at 8 a.m. There's always action at the beginning. Gary Deyarman was the first one to land a trout after the official start. Next up, Nicole Heffner hooked into a nice one and reeled the fish in. It was her first time fishing for trout on opening day and was catching more than the seasoned anglers around her. Well, maybe the fishermen weren't more knowledgeable but the guys had all the gear and look the part while getting their lines snagged in the rocks. A short time later she hooked a second one. Beginners luck? I don't think so.

The photos help to tell the stories of the day and hopefully readers will see the emotion on the faces and realize that they are more than just another pretty picture.
