Oregon Coastal Cutthroat Trout

  These young men have superbly captured the joy of fly fishing for coastal cutthroat trout. In those days when the dramas of life seem to weigh on me too much I can always find solace on a clear coastal range stream. The quiet that I find is...
deafening at times if that makes sense. These wild trout are the last remaining wild trout on the west coast save for wild steelhead trout and I have a special affection for them. In watching the video these young anglers show the simplicity of what fly fishing really is. It just does not get simpler than fishing a dry fly over a clear pool. Too many times we can take for granted the clean, cold running rivers of the Pacific Northwest so awareness of our wild resources is a must! This is not a political issue open for debate but common sense. Thanks again to Brandon and Sam for sharing the joy of trout.
