Dean hollered from upstream as a steelhead took his fly, then hollered again a moment later as the fish released it. At another spot Dean had a nice fish on for perhaps a minute, his rod bowed and bobbing. But that steelhead, too, practiced detachment. Welcome to winter steelhead fishing.

I take advantage of every opportunity to go out fishing. The idea of being able to disconnect from the rest of the world and focus on one thing is an amazing feeling. Another aspect about fishing that I enjoy is the community of people around it. I am always meeting new faces and learning new techniques and ideas.
We can see that as time goes on, the world needs more and more help from the destruction we have done to it. We all need to take start taking a part in conservation, the world needs it.
I have always felt obligated to preserve the nature that I know and love for others to enjoy as well. I have always noticed that whenever communities or even small groups of people come together to clean up or collect data from a stream, they seem to become closer together than they were before.
My favorite way to help the environment is still going fishing with my dad. However, I can’t do that right now, since my dad was deployed to the Middle East this year. Even so, I am still doing what I can to help the environment and learning more every day. So that when he comes home I will be able to show him all the cool stuff I did protecting the places we love.
If the land is so important to me, then I can only imagine how important the land must be to them. Without conservation, the great Bristol Bay region of Alaska wouldn’t be what it is today
But then, amidst the chaos of the fight that just took place, I took my eyes off the magnificent creature resting in my hands, an olive woolly bugger still hanging from her bottom lip, and looked up. I gazed around at the exploding colors of red and yellow amongst the trees, the baby blue sky looming over us and at the contorted reflection of all this madness across the waters. It beat out any painting or photograph I’ve ever seen.
