Photographer's Note

The Swift River in Western Massachusetts was dammed up in the 1930s to create the Quabbin Reservoir. Today this is still a major drinking water source for Massachusetts and because of this there is no boating or other water activity allowed. This shot is after the spill way as the overflow continues south in the Swift River. The area is set aside as fly fishing only and it is catch and release. Since it is called fishing and not catching I imagine there is not much of the sport or pleasure that is lost.

The lines from the fishermen are all assorted colors, I imagine for ease in sorting out the tangles when there are many in the same area. When the light is right the line sinuously being paid out is mesmerizing.
