Warm weather, cold weather, rain or even snow doesn’t stop the trout fisherman who find their favorite spot on Floyd County’s many streams.

They’re out when I leave in the early morning hours and I expect to see them when the days get long enough for it to still be daylight when I return.

When I stopped on the bridge on Buffalo Mountain Road to snap this fisherman on Burk’s Fork Creek, he looked up and asked “what gives you the right to take my picture?” I thought for a second and then replied: “Because you’re fishing on my land?” He smiled back and said “oh, OK I guess.”
