"Energy development is vital to Wyoming and our nation, but so are trout and wild places as rare as this." - Steven Brutger
In 2003 Lee Orr (WV Council Treasurer) and I decided to learn the craft of making split bamboo fly rods. Armed with a couple of books and the worldwide web, we collectively started Vandalia Rodworks.
This project took me a couple of years until completion. My goal was to highlight some of the native brook trout restoration activity and obstacles facing this fish I love so much within the Mountain State of West Virginia. I had a budget of $0, a camera, and a passion for story telling.
Barely a few weeks before Colorado was devastated with flooding in late summer of 2013 I made use of a late invitation to use a vacated backcountry permit with fellow TU'ers Chris and Keith.
