Fly fishing has as much to do with ragged purple mountaintops, water cascading over rounded boulders in steep-walled canyons of pink granite, and sunlight streaming through Douglas firs as it does with fish. In pursuit of trout, anglers find themselves in some of the world’s loveliest places and perhaps, either knowingly or subconsciously, derive as much satisfaction from simply entering the trout’s environment as they do from catching their quarry. Angling carries no guarantee of success, and more often than not a cast to a stream or lake results in failure. Yet anglers continue to head for the water because the places trout live are as important to them as are the speckled fish.
