    Remembering Dave Whitlock

    It’s an editor’s worst nightmare to have to write something about the loss of a team member.  But that task is unimaginably more difficult when that person is your role model, inspiration and very dear friend. Dave Whitlock, who passed away on November 23, was among the kindest, most gracious, humble, yet supremely talented, energetic…

    Behind the TROUT Cover: Tim Romano

    Every year, our family takes our summer vacation to my wife’s family camp in the Adirondack Mountains in New York state.   For me it’s Shangri-La. Days of barefoot cavorting with my girls in the lake blend into incredible fishing for trout, lakers, smallmouth, landlocked salmon. The human powered wooden boat scene there is incomparable, too.…

    In a Native Place

    On the Fort Apache reservation, preserving native trout and a tribe’s identity. In the Western Apache worldview, humans share the earth with birds, elk, fish, insects, plants.  Water, air, rocks—all are alive. All are part of the community of life here. The land is also full of stories. If you know the stories, say Apache…

    From the Editor: Share your stories about daughters, fishing and conservation

We’ve probably had more positive feedback on this one than any other I can remember. Kudos to the editorial team, especially to deputy editor Samantha Carmichael, who spearheaded the “Daughters of TU”…

    Behind the Cover: Daughters

    "We caught plenty of beautiful trout and a few whitefish, but my most vivid memories are of Lily enjoying the simplest of things, the way only a toddler can."

    You've read a thousand and one stories about fathers and sons fishing. For the summer issue of TROUT magazine, we asked our contributors to turn their attention to the ways we share what we love with our daughters. For the cover, we chose a disarming photo of a girl, Lily Chang, clearly having the time…

    Mr. Moyer goes to Washington

    For more than 30 years, TU’s Steve Moyer has been fighting for coldwater conservation in the nation’s capitol WASHINGTON, DC. -- Growing up outside Philadelphia, Steve Moyer enjoyed the proverbial best of both worlds.

    Behind the Cover: ‘Want to see something cool?’

    Gary LaFontaine characterized fly fishing as the the pursuit of perfect moments, and I like to think this image is a good expression of that idea.

    My friend Ethan Winchester and I had met up in the northern tip of Michigan for a day of remote, small-stream brook trout fishing. After a session of sunrise bow-and-arrow casting in an open meadow, we hopped back into the truck and Ethan asked, “Want to see something cool?” We went to an upper reach…
