Great photos - they're all professional quality (and I used to have to submit photos for magazines...).
Love that old school fork for your pushpole as well... It's been years since I made one like that...

I've always figured that a wooden fork was just a bit quieter on shell or oysters than the modern forks - but that's just me...

One of the reels I hand my anglers when we're using spinning gear is an old (model) Daiwa 2600SS Whisker reel. Found it on line, new in the box and just had to have it... Don't think they've been on the market in twenty years - but still a great reel for tossing small plugs at tarpon... Retro is just fine -but that reel is set up with 20lb braid (and tarpon in the 30 to 70lb range need every bit of that braid's advantages...).
Here's a pic of our best snook this year (so far....) taken with that reel using one of the lures I make - and on a rod that I built...
figure I'd have to be awful lucky to ever hook another one that size - particularly around Chokoloskee where big snook just get eaten by the sharks that live with them... This big girl was very carefully released in good shape...
