Humm .. there is something to this link. More so, say, than the link between photographers and golfers.
I was an avid golfer from 14 years old until I injured my back in 1993. Was also an avid Photographer during the same time. Still am of course.
Carrying a camera when playing golf can be somewhat difficult, unless you rent a cart, but it does provide some good photo ops. I can't imagine a fly fisherman with a camera in one hand and the fly rod in the other.
