Stalking Appalachian Trout
Small Stream Fly-fishing At Its Finest!
Recommended Prerequisites: None
Program Length: 51 min.
The Appalachian Mountains rise above the valleys of the eastern United States from
Alabama all the way to southwestern Canada. The term "Appalachian" includes several different
mountain regions within this range. In a broad sense this program applies to all the mountains in
the range but more specifically to regions within the central and southern Appalachian
Mountains. This includes areas as far north as Maryland and West Virginia and as far south as
north Georgia. A substantial part of the mountains lie within the boundaries of national parks
and national and state forest providing a huge number of cold water, freestone trout streams
available for the public to fish.
Host Christopher Tobias teaches you how to catch trout even under low, extremely clear
water conditions. Learn everything you need to know in order to consistently catch trout on the
fly. The detailed instructions include the most successful fishing methods, techniques and

All the trout caught in this presentation are either wild or native trout. None were
stocked or came from a hatchery. Wild and native trout are very aggressive, lightning fast and
much more fun to catch than stocked trout. Catching a native or a stream-bred wild trout just
adds something special to the pleasures and skills required for fly-fishing small streams..
