Photographer, Don Honus
Don Honus, an avid fly fisherman and photographer is credited for many of the photos on the Conejo Valley Fly Fishers website.
Here is a gallery of some of his best works captured by the camera lens.
In the meantime enjoy seeing the world through Don’s eyes!
Everything Has Its Season
Born in late winter and populated with
fingers of trees still naked and grasping
for the dull tin pie plate
that passes for the sun in that cold country,
the season begins.
It begins with fly boxes fattened with
speculation, cabin fever and hope,
books with folded corners,
maps torn with folding and re-folding,
the click of a reel in the basement.
And then somehow the season ends
with a last trip, a last fish.
And with fly boxes thin and gaunt and
in need of filling.
Brother Don, may you rest in peace finding a new heavenly joy and excitement that far exceeds the last fishing outing and the last slippery beauty that you landed and released. We will miss you exceedingly.
