Fishing for trout from a chair: Carl Carey & the Cumberland River

2017-04-14 - The Boat Ramp off Banks Street, Burkesville, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, .
The friendly knowledgeable man in the chair is Carl Carey, a proud lumberman at Johnny Rich's mill in Marrowbone, KY, where he's worked for 12 years, turning planks. Here at his favorite avocation, fishing, at almost regular intervals he's up tending to the business at hand. Above he's recast the line. He's also got to be hauling them in, moving his operation closer to the ramp when boats are launching, and watching "the tide come in" when more water is released a way upstream at Wolf Creek Dam. In a single session he has to move at intervals over a distance of some 12-15 feet. -- EW
