The Way of Trout brings you underwater into the world of rainbow trout. You will see scenes of this great fish’s day-today fight to survive from predators who at various stages of growth include aquatic insects, other fish, birds and animals. And, only man, the ultimate predator, has the alternative to release trout to spawn future generations.

This movie is the original award winning 16 mm classic production produced for Trout Unlimited.

“It was one of the first films to advocate “catch and release, ” says Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch. “You will really enjoy seeing this short film that features a wise old fly fisherman and a very large and beautiful female rainbow trout on the Northwest Stream Center’s big screen.”
