    Hi I am interested to know more as I am a keen yak fishermen. A quick question, can you give some examples of the calibre of photos you are after? Would the pic (me kneeling down holding a flatty in front of my yak from the 10 of July post shared on the 14th) I posted on the comment pic be good or great and what are you looking for in the picture just massive fish being held or can we submit awesome yaking fun and scenery? Also, what are your expectations for the blog, would something akin to a small feature article be acceptable? Many thanks Abe
