This is a scan of a small photo-collage I made this afternoon, which I call Nick’s Place. It’s made up of parts of photos taken at two different trout streams. The mossy landscape parts and the single tree come from the canyon stretch of a beautiful brook trout stream in Ontario, one which is tricky to access, and equally tricky to fly fish. The other parts of the collage come from photos I took of a well-known brook trout stream in the United States.
It’s impromptu contest time here at 27th Street. If you can tell me the name of the American stream – and the nearest town – by midnight tonight – I’ll send you the original collage. East Texas Red is disqualified. Richard Strom can decide if he needs to disqualify himself. Clue: it’s west of the obvious guess. No, I won’t tell you what state it’s in.
