Cutties in August
Its a lovely August day and Steve and Ladin are fishing a stream in British Columbia and hoping for some dry fly action with the native Cutthroat Trout. With nothing moving, they start on nymphs and Steve is first to hook up into a hefty Cutthroat which takes his size 16 Pheasant Tail. Moving upstream, they spot a riser and Ladin tempts it with a Purple Haze dry fly. There aren't many fish rising but they are certainly looking up as the pair continue to catch good sized Cutthroat throughout the day in the 12-16 inches range. As the day ends, Steve catches a huge Cutthroat in shallow water that puts up a strong fight and even gives Ladin a soaking as he backtracks quickly to film it.
