Has this ever happened to you?

You finally nail the holy grail of flats fishing after hundreds of missed opportunities, or perhaps you land that fish of a lifetime you have been chasing all these years. The cameraman goes snap-happy and you begin to think about how you will display your photo for all to see. And then you download the photos form your camera…. Every single photo is ruined. Too washed out, underexposed, poorly composed, or just not capturing the amazing moment as you remember it.

For me a huge Queensland Grouper off the beach, my first Billfish and a huge Saltwater Barramundi spring to mind. I still shed a tear when I see those photos and curse the photographers name daily.

Piscatus.net is here to help. Assuming the image is composed adequately and the image is not too far gone – there is an awful lot that can be done to resurrect your images into amazing photos. RAW photos are particularly well suited to restoration however the recent advances in photo editing software and a little tender loving care can do wonders on even low quality images from the past. Even scanned photographs can be restored.. to a point.

If you are interested in having your shot(s) tweaked then please submit the unadulterated image file in RAW or JPEG format via email. Please include your name and a short description to go with the image to set the scene including location, gear used and why the photo is important to you. Assuming the image provides a reasonable canvas for restoration I will put it through the wash, send you a full resolution copy, and post a before and after shot here with your description.

Currently Piscatus.net provides this as a free service and we cannot guarantee that we will restore every photo we receive. Preference will however be given to well framed images that have obvious importance to the sender.


Coming soon, just as soon as he sobers up.
Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, Chris spent every waking minute looking for his next fish in the lower reaches of Perth’s swan river and exploring the bays and beaches of Rottnest Island with his brothers. Following school he moved to Far North Queensland to study Marine Biology and Aquaculture and sample the tropical fishing before moving on to the Whitsunday Islands to work as a RYA Yachtmaster instructor where he found an abundance of Giant Trevally to keep him busy.

Returning home to complete a Masters of Science in Environmental Management; he reacquainted himself with the waters offshore of Perth before moving to Ningaloo to fish as hard as he possibly could for a year. A few international fishing trips later, a new job, and just a few more lost fish, and he has somehow found himself in Central California with his beautiful wife and daughter – still thinking about that next fishing mission.

Piscatus.net has been brewing for awhile now and is providing him with an outlet to share his passion for fishing with the world, hone his fishing photography, and take the edge off his cravings until that next hookup…
