Table Rock and Kineo Mountain, 1888 / Maine Historical Society

<strong>Chapter 9, page 258-260.</strong>

Maine woods visitor John Dunn photographed three fisherman using Table Rock as a casting platform on August 1, 1888.

In the late 19th century, a canoe, bamboo fly-fishing pole loaded with silk fly line and a hand-tied fly were considered state-of-the-art fishing equipment.

The three fisherman are dwarfed by the dramatic backdrop of Mount Kineo at Moosehead Lake.
