It’s always good to see young people embrace the great sport of fly fishing. No one in my recent memory embraces it more than Christopher Watt. He’s a young man on a quest to catch a fish on the fly in all 50 of the United States, and he made a stop in Minnesota yesterday to scratch it off his list. He got the job done in a very impressive manner. He is a fine angler and a pleasure to spend a day on the water with.

Kip Vieth owns Wildwood Float Trips, in Monticello, Minnesota, and is a former Trout Bum of the Week. Check out his excellent “10 Tips for Catching a Musky on a Fly.”


Christopher got into some seriosuly stout fish during his day on the Upper Mississippi.

The hits just kept coming. . . .
