Chris Santella has authored another fly fishing book titled "Why I fish."  If you are not familiar with Santella’s work, he authored two editions of "Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die" and he also is a regular contributor at the New York Times.  In addition to this, when he goes steelheading he apparently wears a Trouts Signature Trucker Hat for good luck. We don’t have his new book in the shop yet but this excerpt and guest blog post makes us want to hunt a copy down.

condolences

April 22, 2013

Trouts Fly Fishing would like to offer our condolences to the families and friends of the five outdoor enthusiasts and industry professionals who were killed this weekend in the avalanche on Loveland Pass. 

From the Denver Post:

The five men killed Saturday in Colorado's deadliest avalanche in 50 years were participants in a backcountry snowboarder event called the Rocky Mountain High Backcountry Bash.  They were representatives and founders of snow-sport companies, guides, avalanche experts and veteran backcountry travelers, gathering in the normally safer spring season to celebrate backcountry snowboarding, raise money for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center and test the newest gear.”
