 Matthias delicately removes a fishing hook out of a 20'' wild brown trout. The fly fishermen of the area follow a strict code of ethics, and have a deep appreciation for the area and its sensitive wildlife. Matthias actively preaches the code of "Catch and Release" as to keep the population of wild brown trout abundant. This and other codes help keep the rivers ecosystem strong, and the fly fishermen of the mountains happy.
