A note from Justin Swan

“Paula and I decided to check out one of our favorite stretches in the Alberta Rockies. It was a quiet, colorful fall day, and the hatches were on. I was sitting on the rocks, watching some cutthroat trout rise in a crystal-clear pool. A thought crossed my mind, “I wonder if I can get a dry fly eat from a unique perspective,” as I hadn’t seen many (if any) videos of what an eat looks like from the trout’s point of view. I slowly inched my way to the water’s edge and took a good position in the water without spooking the fish. After a few takes, it finally came together: the cast, the eat, everything. It was cool to see it from the trout’s perspective, from cast to catch to release. Another perfect day in the books!”
