I Love PlanetTrout

Besides my family and friends in California the one thing I really miss is the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I grew up camping and fishing in the streams that were fed by glaciers in these mountains. The memories are some of my fondest. I've been trying to get back to at least visit this place for years. In the meantime I've lived vicariously through blogposts and youtube videos. Many are painful to watch. Not because of the content. Mainly because of how bad they make me miss this place. Kind of like running into your ex with her new significant other. It stings a little and all the memories and good times flashback. Some are so vivid you can almost feel as you're reliving the moments. The blog that has given me this feeling the most is PlanetTrout. The author not only is a great fly tier and fisherman but also does the Sierra's justice with his photos. It's torture to read it at times because it makes me want to jump on a plane and fly out to Bishop tomorrow. Until that time comes I'll have to keep enjoying the adventures from afar.


  1. The East side of the Sierra has fared much better than the West side, that's for sure. For the East side, PlanetTrout is the "go to" guy.

    1. Thanks for the comment Mark. Out of all my visits to the Sierra's I never checked the West side. From people I know who have camped there is sounds like a whole different place. I know plenty of people who spent childhoods camping near the Kern River.

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for sharing the link. I had not previously visited this link, though, I have seen it listed on the blogrolls here and there. Very nice site and thorough with his work and instructions. Isn't it great that us bloggers are willing to share links to some good stuff.

  3. Well you have got my curiosity peaked. I'm going there as soon as hit publish. Thanks buddy.
