Poling The Big Machias | Jack Mountain Bushcraft Journal 23

A canoeing video of poling up and snubbing down the Big Machias River during the June, 2011 Riverman Course. The camera gets a little shakey in the middle, but even with this is shows that with a pole and some experience a person can travel upstream through a rip faster than they can walk on shore.

    Looks like you got a bit wet before coming back down :D I’m always a little sad that poling isn’t a skill I was able to pick up before moving Away. Thanks for the video!
