I think most fly fishers would agree the places and the journey are often just as, if not more rewarding than landing big fish. A recent weekend at a favorite trout stream in the shadow of Mt. Ranier and Mt. Adams was a reminder of that. This stream draws me back every year. Partly because the indigenous nature of the trout and also because there is an almost palpable energy there that always creates a unique experience. We slept on top of a high mountain and were privy to some spectacular sunrises, sunsets and an array of other views that warranted their own segment. During the day we fished the creek several thousand feet down in the valley. All footage was gathered the same weekend.
