Fly fishing and beautiful places seem to go together.
A trout bum can enjoy a campfire and the surf at the same time at Washington’s South Beach.
Olympic National Park, Washington
He can cast his fly to the subtle rise of a trout on Colorado’s South Platte.
He can stop for coffee on California’s Truckee.
Places like Washington’s mighty Hoh,
Pennsylvania’s Little Lehigh,
Colorado’s Arkansas River,
and Utah’s Green River become routine.
Campsites overlooking Colorado’s Frying Pan,
New Mexico’s San Juan,
Washington’s Yakima River Canyon,
The Upper Queets River in Washington’s Olympic Wilderness
and Olympic National Park’s Hurricane Ridge
rival Motel 6!
In getting to these wonderful fishing holes, you pass through beautiful places.
Colorado’s Wolfe Creek Pass,
The Grand Tetons,
Mt Rainier National Park,
and The Grand Canyon.
Beautiful places too numerous to mention.
A trout bum can take Amtrak’s California Zephyr,
or the Coastal Starlight.
or the Alaskan Ferry
He can fly,
and not scratch the surface.
Point to remember
North America has too much water and too many beautiful places for a trout bum to cover in a life time.
