The Fisherman

We have a mental image the of opening say of trout season showing some toff in his LL Bean chest waders, wicker creel, felt hat and handcrafted fly rod casting to rising trout on a limpid pool. Thank you Norman Rockwell. In Vermont, opening day is usually colder than the well digger’s butt, has a stiff north wind and wouldn’t be complete without some rain or sleet. The trout are all huddled at the bottom of those now roiling ‘limpid’ pools. Most fishermen get down to the water’s edge and dunk worms to entice those indifferent trout. Com’on July!Opening day trout seasonThe Slough, Panton Road Panton, Vermont 04/12/2008


About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
