I watched the video, and then looked at some of his other ones. The one on the Lamoille River, just north of where my son lives in VT, looks like a great place to take my w/c canoe this coming week while I visit my son! Pretty amazing what a veteran poler can do in rapids.
Rick, Once you have poling down, lots of practice, it's not that hard. I have always found snubbing harder then going upstream and Carp is very good at it! Next time I'm in VT I should hook up with you and we should hit a local river.
