I'm in Connecticut. I'll be joining Tommy and crew tomorrow on the NB stretch, and there's a few regular polers around, most notably Ed Hayden who makes aluminum poles. I'm out poling often, nearly year round, mostly on the farmington around Burlington, Collinsville, New Hartford, and Riverton.Sometimes pole the Bantam, Shepaug, and Housatonic, and want to pole the Salmon/Blackledge area sometime. I've made a few simple wood and aluminum poles, Ed makes poles in aluminum, then there's Fred (Ravensjester) who makes some beautiful wood poles. Some darn great people standing up in canoes around here. Ed's from near the Thames, Fred lives by the Shepaug.

Also a lot of old posts on here about poles if you do a search.
Ed will be at NB tomorrow and I'm sure will have a load of 2 pc. poles in the back of his pick up.
