New gallery of shots from last weeks bamboo rod making school I taught. My two students were finished with their blanks by Thursday (started on Monday) so we went fishing on Friday.

Sweetness. That is a bad ass waterfall out in the middle of the woods.

Beautiful shots. That pool with the falls looks absolutely fishy. Does that spot get a lot of traffic?

We worked 8 hour days with an hour or so lunch break.

That stream is in a state park and has a trail nearby that gets a lot of hiker traffic. I would say that the stream gets around two or three dozen anglers a year on it though. It isn't a stocker stream and there is one nearby that gets all the mouth breathers. The native brook trout population is not overly impressive though. At least from my experience. There are plenty more where that comes from in the area so I doubt I'll fish this particular stretch much more in my life with hundreds more to explore.
