The Fording River is a tributary of the Elk River in British Columbia and the glorious setting for Ladin and Steve's fly fishing trip in this episode. Its October and there's a chill in the air but the river is clear and conditions look really good. Steve loses his first fish but then gets a take on a Stonefly Nymph and lands a stunning 18 inch Cutthroat. Moving to anther run, he dead drifts a streamer under an indicator and hooks another big Cutt which unfortunately gets away just as he was trying to net it. Moving downstream, Ladin finds some lovely water with a good flow on it and lands a nice fish on a black and red streamer. He then sees some fish rising fish on the far bank so calls Steve in who has a dry fly ready to go. Steve lands another as Ladin also switches tactics, putting on a Purple Haze Mayfly to land the best fish of the day, a stunning male Cutthroat with incredible markings. As the sun drops, they move to the junction pool with the Elk and Steve caps a brilliant day with another Cutthroat, this time on a streamer.
