Yep, once again I am searching for the elusive addiction. Once again the map and compass (I mean GPS and Goggle Earth) are the best ways to travel, the streams with no trail are the exact areas that I will be targeting. Funny though, I'm back at the place that I always wanted to leave. As a kid the thought of fish in far away destinations always sounded so grand, believe me it still does today but not at this point in my life. I spent more than the last decade tracking the big fish dream but fishing at home has a mystic about it that I cannot quite figure out. So off in search of that treasure that we all seek, mine is somewhere on a map that looks like small squiggly blue lines and holds a bounty of native cutthroat trout. There are so many of these small streams and river systems but each is unique in its own way and each holds its own treasures. Target…Cutthroat, they seem live in the most pristine environments, where man has not disrupted nature's life, where clean clear pure mountain water is a must and the land is in its own harmony. This usually means that it's far, remote and not an easy task to get there. For me this means that it’s a place seldom visited which makes my brain think about all the possibilities. I ponder this area sometimes for only a second before I have map in front of me planning the trek to sooth my soul. So, this summer and fall will be a great adventure and I have already started the search.
