Example text

Trout couldn't care less.  If it's true that a trout's a trout when viewed in the abstract and thus detached from its environment, then those material differences which drive even the most competent angler crazy throughout his life must derive from eccentricities peculiar to the water the trout inhabits.  Soon after this photo was snapped, Curt hooked a fine brown that was feeding tight to the opposite bank.  The successful angler, therefore, I believe, must have an incurable, if joyful, case of masochism.

Pennsylvania's Letort, for instance, surfaces at about 55 degrees Fahrenheit year­round.  Much better circumstances for trout and, therefore, for fly fishermen, couldn't be rigged, not even by Mother Nature.  Thus when a dry fly fisherman encounters trout of any species exhibiting apparently extraordinary behavior, regardless of season, he'll seldom go wrong to use a thermometer to help determine the cause.  They are the soul of trout fishing.  A capacity to make bad years better, incidentally, is one mark of an accomplished fly fisherman.

Islands are formed by accumulated rock, gravel and silt, frequently held together by the roots of growing plant life.  Riffle—Water flowing over relatively few rocks or stones.  Channel—A rather deep, swift flow of water, frequently found between islands and boulders.  Dead water—A spot of slack water protected from the force of flow by the presence of a large mass, such as an island.  Pockets—See number seven.  Lip—An accumulation of gravel at the front of a depression.  Depression—A hollowed­out place in a gravel bottom.
