Things happen fast in fly fishing.
Line whistles through the air, fish leap out of the water, guides swoop in with the net. It’s fun to capture these moments of action with the camera but often we fail and end up with a shot that is blurred beyond recognition. The solution is shutter speed. Today’s DSLR cameras are capable of amazingly fast shutter speed. A shutter speed on 1/8000 of a second will take crisp shots from a speeding flats boat. When you know you need that kind of speed there are a few things to keep in mind. You may find yourself needing an ISO setting as high as 800 in bright sun to get the shutter speed you need. In most cases your flash will be of no use. Most cameras will not sync with a flash at speeds above 1/250. Lastly, there is no replacement for a quality lens with a fast aperture. An aperture of 1.8-2.8 is a big help when trying to stop the clock.
