I spent an enjoyable ten days in July in beautiful Upstate New York, hundreds of miles away from New York City. Next year I might visit and enjoy Manhattan again, but this time a relaxing country vacation was in order.
I love New York countryside, it's amazingly lush and green, and teeming with life, in the air, water and land. I fished a variety of streams with my friend Luke, starting with the Ausable River and Tupper Lake in the heart of the Adirondack National Park, as well as Oatka Creek and Springbrook in western New York.
Below are a few of my favorite photos from the trip, and yes, the fishing was good, the fish were beautiful, and all were released unharmed...
