Get Any Bites?

Fisherman at Sandstone Falls on the New River, West Virginia. April 23, 2010.

When I saw this fisherman last Friday, I immediately thought of my friend the Fishing Guy.  FG is quite a fisherman living up in northeastern Ohio, although I’m not sure he has quite this backdrop at his favorite fishing holes.

Betsy and I were at Sandstone Falls on the New River Gorge National River.  We had driven up to southern West Virginia to spend a couple of days seeing waterfalls in an area we had visited before.

This picture shows just a very small portion of Sandstone Falls.  The falls is not high, but it is spectacular, extending all the way across the very broad river.

I’m sure Betsy or I will be posting more pictures of Sandstone Falls in the future.  But I hope FG will someday have the opportunity to fish the New River at Sandstone.  I can’t guarantee a great catch, but I can guarantee some fantastic scenery.

    How nice it would be to stand there fishing and listening to the sound of that water. How peaceful!

    If the scenery is that beautiful I don’t mind spending the day catching nothing but a cold LOL.

    Gorgeous shot. Saturday opened fishing season here–Lakes and rivers. On my roadtrip yesterday we saw a zillion fisherpeople at the many lakes in eastern Washington. MB

    George: Thanks so much for thinking of me and this great fishing spot. I may some day go to the area to fish and tale photos. What a really neat falls.

    I’m glad you two had such a good time! Wow! The man seems dwarfed by nature, a great perspective!! It must be heaven for a fisherman to fish at the base of a waterfall. I wonder if you get more or less fish near a waterfall?

    yes, pun intended. 😉

    With scenery like that I might even enjoy fishing. OK,maybe I’d rather have a camera in hand.:-)

    We like to wade and fish creeks…though I have slowed down some in doing that. But Roger and his buddies love to go.
