    I've never caught an arctic grayling but that golden trout and Dolley Varden are the three species I'd love to catch. Then perhaps, one of them would become a new favorite of mine.

    I should say SRCs because I feel grounded standing in salt water. But I'll choose Rainbows & Cutts because of the pristene surroundings where they live.

    Definitly steelhead, no ifs ans or buts about it. They are my most favorite fish ever. After traveling 100s of miles in the oceans and fighting hell and high water to try in reach their spawning destination, and let alone to be fortunate enough to have one in your own hands and let them be on their way......best feeling ever!

    Big silvers - anywhere!!! What other fish might make you duck as it jumped towards, and over, your boat while you watch your flyline trail past you at eye level!!!

    The one on the other end of my line... what can I say... I dont like to discriminate... they are all good. Specially if they take my fly. Then they are better than good.

    I believe that it is a previously recognized subspecies of cutthroat that was called the Mountain Cutthroat native to parts of BC above barrier falls, some also considered the Cascade Mtn. and John Day cutts to be members of this form. It is now just considered to be a Westslope Cutthroat though due to lack of enough isolation time and genetic differences...

    Favorite species: Brown Trout

    Favorite individual fish: Walleye in shallow water with a bugger. That was a fun little suprise.
