My name is Leonard Steves, and I hail from Victoria BC. The purpose of this blog is just to simply celebrate the mysterious anadromous cutthroat trout, the amazing places they live, and fly fishing for them especially with 2 handed/”spey” and “switch” rods. I have been fishing for these sea run fish since I was a child, and have been fly fishing for about 16 years. There is much negativity in discussions surrounding anadromous fish/fishing methods on the west coast and not suprisingly so with regards to the many many water use/watershed management problems, overharvest, entitlement, apathy, and all the other parts of the gauntlet that all such fish must run, and I will discuss these issues, but I don’t see much getting accomplished through the bitter/divisive/shit talking commentary that I see so much of out there. More than anything this is just an honest attempt to explain why these fish are so important to me and why they are worth celebrating and protecting. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I welcome questions, or comments dissenting or otherwise.
