When I was 19 I fell in love with Iowa.


It stopped just being the place I was born, where I’m from, where I live.


I was given a copy of the Iowa Sportman’s Atlas. I have spent many days since chasing fish in the rivers and streams.  More importantly I realized how many interesting people and places exist between the two great rivers that border the state.  We spent a weekend in April trout fishing the Driftless area of Northeast Iowa.  This is part of a series highlighting the people, places and products that make Des Moines, and Iowa, special.
