Seeing through the Ice Louis Rhead Ice Fishing

Seeing Through the Ice Louis Rhead Ice Fishing

Seeing Through the Ice Louis Rhead Ice Fishing is my meager attempt to assimilate the last two weeks of my life to fishing theme. Some who follow this blog know me and our families tribulations over the last decade. Weve had the rug pulled out from underneath us, but like before we will get up and move forward again. #itsmystorytotell

Ive always been inspired by my Son, who was born 8 weeks early and his journey to enter this life. 3 years later his 7 year battle and walk with his own rare disease, ITP, and its corresponding years of treatments. His strength he has shown to all, his smile, and perseverance nothing short of amazing. His strength through some of his toughest times never wavering, his infectious love of life and all gods creatures heart warming.

 

Watching, looking and reaching below, the ice fisherman uses a small hole as his gateway to a world below. The world that he is so familiar with at times, yet now seems so unfamiliar. His tools he is so familiar with at times can no longer be used in his pursuit, and he must change and adapt if he wants a shot at what is below.

Antique Fishing Photo Sam Wallace CDV

Antique Fishing Photo Sam Wallace CDV

This a great Antique Fishing Photo Sam Wallace CDV. CDV or Carte De Viste is a photography format or medium like we a few have discussed before with Samuel Tisdale the Black bass Man. The Carte De Viste CDV was invented and patented by France by photographer André Adolphe Eugène Disdéri in 1854. This medium of smallish sized card would be supplanted or followed by “cabinet cards”, in the early 1870’s as the popular or medium of choice.

As I’ve stated before a Fisherman or Fishing scenes are considered difficult to find. Usually the subjects of the early photos were of some importance, and or elevated social status. Being able to afford a true Rod, Reel, Creel and Fishing outfit was not generally widespread.

In this great pose we see our subject Sam Wallace presenting with all the needed items for a great day on the water or stream. If anyone is able to ID the Rod or especially the reel I would be great-full for the help. If you have any photos youd be willing to let me use and share with the readers please contact me. I would love to add some more period images to the site and would be more than happy to give full credit for the submission.
