Video from Falcon’s Ledge: Utah Trout Tries To Get Away


Written by: Kathleen Moore

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!

Check out the video above, and click here for the full story.

    What should be obvious to everyone watching this video is that Spencer is a second-level black belt. The fish never had a chance.
