For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

A place located about 320 miles north from where I'm writing this post is where I'll be the last week of September. In this photo taken from the cabin we stay at, the area to fish is about 10 miles, that is as the crow flies. The region I speak of is Rangeley, Maine, and the cabin is on Rangeley Lake. At this time of year the lake can produce some fine fishing for landlocked salmon and brook trout. But I choose to fish the tribs of the lakes in search of the same quarry.
One of those tributaries is the Cupsuptic River. The river where it enters the lake by the same name can be good fishing, I seek out the streams in and about the area.
"Toothaker" a streamer I created and tied and so named for the streams of this area.
