Thanks for sharing.

I always prefer the wild river trout to the stocked dams and lakes. Unfortunately I don't get to fish the streams enough.

After seeing this I think I must definitely make a plan to get back to the rivers.

Ya, we have definitely fallen in love with rivers! We don't fly-fish dams anymore. Nothing wrong with stillwater fly-fishing but there is something amazing and peaceful about walking along crystal clear flowing water, the babbling river sounds and nature at its finest, then add to that some incredible picky eating, hard fighting river trout! Heaven!
