Hike Long Enough and the Fish Will Find You

Stories like this one remind me of how fly fishing rewards those who dedicate themselves to a locale: spend enough time exploring, and eventually you uncover its closely held secrets. “Bowerman said he’s been hiking the east side of the Sierra for more than 15 years. He always hikes and takes his fly rod with a load of dry flies. He didn’t want to reveal his secret spot where he had the incredible fishing, saying only that ‘it’s around 11,000 feet and not more than five miles as the crow flies from Mount Whitney.'” In the San Diego Union-Tribune.
