Trying to outsmart a wild trout gets the adrenaline pumping

Having hiked and fished just about every stream under the Rim that had any chance of holding a trout has been an adventure over the last 50 years.  It still gets the adrenaline pumping in this aging outdoorsman — trying to outsmart a wild trout and succeeding in catching one of those brightly colored game fish on ultralight gear.  When I find a secluded stretch of water that has a rainbow, brookie, or brown trout, I often wonder how that fish took up residence in a creek that is very much off the beaten path.
