Video spotlight: Fly Fishing for Brookies

Fly fisher and guide Bridget Fabel has a fairly robust collection of fly fishing videos—she’s a cheerful camera personality with some solid angling skills.

And she fly fishes with her cats.

Yes. Cats.

A lot of us have “fishing dogs” that share the water with us, hike the trails and stand at the ready to sniff whatever we’re able to bring to hand, but I would imagine that very few of us have ever fished with a cat.

In the video above, Bridget chases some fat lake-dwelling brook trout on a blustery day, and she does, indeed, let her cats out of the bag (you’ll see what I mean) while she fishes.

To each her own, I suppose.
