Greetings from the Critique Club!

Nice atmosphere here, love the curves of the fly fisherman's line. Obviously working with ambient light though personally I think your ISO a little high, shutter could probably have been slowed a little.

I'm guessing you snuck up on this guy unawares, going by his back being to you and the focus on his line. I think too that you shot from what I call 'regular person pov' - meaning just standing in place and shooting a subject. If you had been shooting from a lower pov then you may have been closer to his level and given it a more personal feel.

Technicals are ok but my big bugaboo here are all the trees. I can see that you're using them to frame him - but it's almost too much. The pic looks busy and with the oof foreground competing with the deadfall to the right, I find myself worrying more about what he's going to catch his line on, than him! A little zooming in might have been the best way to go here.

Hope this has been of help, feel free to PM me

Great shot, really think this should've been a good bit higher considering some of the entries above you and the prompt.
