19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Kirk Klingensmith - Fly Fisher

An accomplished fly fisher, generous ambassador, and teacher of a craft deeply rooted to the culture and history of the Southern Tier region of Upstate New York, Kirk stood under the shroud of an ever-present drizzle in the waters of the Conhocton River. Changing his fly, he proceeded to catch a trifecta of Rainbow, Brook, and Brown trout.
