Fly Fishing DVD - Part 22
"Stalking Appalachian Trout", our latest DVD release, became available approximately two years ago. It
features Christopher Tobias, who was serving in the U. S. Army and stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.
Since this programs was released, Chris has served a one-year tour of duty in Afghanistan, his forth tour of
overseas war-time duty. He is currently back in North Carolina at Ft. Bragg.

Chris was born and raised on the Salmon River in New York, a salmon and steelhead tributary of Lake
Ontario. He has fished the numerous trout streams of western New York as well as the streams of the Eastern
Appalachian Mountains for several years. Chis has considerable experience fishing for the large Great Lakes
tributary steelhead version of the rainbow trout and is use to catching very large fish on light fly-fishing
tackle. He prefers to use a 3 weight fly rod to fish the small streams of the Appalachians. If you view this
program, you will see that he does very well under extremely tough fishing conditions using long, light leaders
and tippets. It was shot during the July and August heat when the water was very low and extremely clear.

Because Chris was serving full time duty in the Army, we had a very limited amount of time to shoot this
video. Catching trout under the conditions he faced, and especially the larger size brown trout, becomes a
matter of how well you can stalk them. To do that successfully, you first need to have a very good knowledge
of just what the trout can and cannot see. You also have to know how to approach and present flies to the
trout under the very low, slow moving, clear water conditions. The following menu outlines how the program
goes about teaching these important subjects.
