Ladin kicks off the series from Michel Creek in British Columbia on a beautiful autumn day, fly fishing for Cutthroat Trout with a good chance of a Bull Trout too. As you'd expect from British Columbia the scenery is stunning with the mountains as the backdrop and the trees starting to turn into those stunning fall colours. The creek looks very fishy with open banks, fast flowing riffles, pools and glides and a perfect habitat for Cutthroat Trout. Using a small black streamer, Ladin's buddy Steve strikes first, landing a perfectly formed Cuttie after a brief fight. As they move upstream, they take it in turns to fish in the more fishy looking runs, holes and pools and Steve loses a good fish before Ladin lands another pretty Cutthroat in a likely run. Switching tactics and using an indicator set up to drift a streamer downstream produces immediate results next as Steve hooks into and lands a strong 3lb Bull Trout. Dead drifting streamers like this can really pay dividends but as they move downstream they see a couple of rising fish so quickly switch to dry flies to entice a couple more nice Cutthroat.
