I love fishing trips with a purpose. Here in the West, particularly in our backcountry streams, fly fishers can target specific species of trout and char just by choosing a destination. Wild rainbows? Try a great little creek that flows west off the Gallatin Range near the town of Ennis, Mont.

For a lot of fly tiers (or a lot of fly tiers like me, anyway), there's always a bit of guess work when it comes to measuring materials before they are tied to the hook. Often, for me, it's a "Well, I guess that looks about right" sort of endeavor.

As noted in the video below, "cruising trout are feeding trout." When we see pods of trout working certain stretches of the river, it's tough to keep our cool sometimes.

If some truly unfortunate calamity were to strike the fly-fishing filmmaking industry, and only one artist could soldier forward and make movies about our beloved pasttime, my secret hope is that that one artist would be Todd Moen.
