Downstream – Testing Trout

There is an underground cult of hardcore fly anglers in Ontario obsessed with chasing wild trout in virtually untouched waters. For many, the only way to experience these streams is vicariously, through stories and myths passed down from generation to generation.

Those who know these streams keep them secret and hold them close.

Most of these anglers are as tight lipped as the fish that swim in these streams.

Follow us chasing huge brown trout with streamers in some of Ontario’s finest trout streams. Hatch Addicts obsessing over mayfly hatches and spinnerfalls while casting to colourful brook trout and weary browns in tiny streams.
