Video spotlight: Small-stream Brown Troutin'

When most of us load up for an overnighter into the mountains to chase trout, a helicopter doesn’t play into the equation. But in remote Sweden, near the border with Norway, a chopper is the most logical means of transport to get to backcountry waters.

But, as you’ll see in the video above, backcountry fishing isn’t all that different for native trout than it is here in the U.S. There’s nothing that really matches small, middle-of-nowhere trout streams in terms of the overall experience—it’s fly fishing for trout at its best, in my humble opinion.

This short episode got me pretty excited for the coming summer here in the northern Rockies, where everything is about the same, save for the helicopter.
