Damfishing

This picture was taken just below the Hamlin Dam in the Ludington State Park. It is one of the best photographs I have ever seen. Can you imagine the wet spray coming off those falls to contend with and then the majesty of that catch is breathtaking. For a brief moment it appears to be a flying fish trying to climb right back up those falls to escape the snag.

One has to wonder how many fish our fisherman friend bagged that day? Most fisherman fish off a platform just below the falls but this guy really got directly into the action. Around his legs appears to be a whirlpool forming. The view from just above that picture must have been great too for onlookers on the narrow path across those falls.
