Video from Falcon’s Ledge: Utah Trout Tries To Get Away
Our friends at Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge Falcon’s Ledge sent this video our way. Bryan Eldredge and Spencer Higa spent the day fishing a Utah stream during a stonefly hatch. This particular fish spit the hook, but that didn’t stop Spencer from landing it!

What should be obvious to everyone watching this video is that Spencer is a second-level black belt. The fish never had a chance.
Makes one appreciate nets a little more! How about a recipe for the stimi chew toy?
