The colors are beginning to taper off now in upstate New York, and I've made a few good trips to fish and take pictures. Two of the trips involved brutally long hikes (9 miles one day) with the heavy camera/lens case and tripod. One of my New Year's Resolutions will be to travel more lightly. Maybe I'll drop a six-ounce fly box and pretend it matters when I can't resist carrying along a six-pound tripod...

Anyway, the picture links:

  • An October 6th-7th trip to the Catskills. Most of these pictures come from one small stream way back in the mountains on the 7th, where I had done well on brookies a few weeks earlier. This day I only caught one fish but I got lots of nice pictures. There are some underwater photos from that trip too.

  • A remote small stream and gorge in the Finger Lakes region. This one involved a several-mile hike through a state forest, a couple miles of fishing and photographing upstream, and an even longer hike out. I caught one 8" trout.

  • One of the more popular parks and gorges in the Finger Lakes. Easy hiking, great scenery.


Enjoy!

Nice, Jason. I especially like the pics from above the park - not too many people go up there, and the water gets pretty skinny pretty fast, but you feel pretty rewarded when you manage to avoid the brush and an 8-incher rises to your dry. Good memories from up there.
