Photos by Scott and Ashlee O’Malley of The O’Malleys.   I once had a fishing guide tell me, “trout don’t live in ugly places.” Nowhere is that more true than Central Idaho’s Big Wood and Sawtooth Valleys. My dad and I have been fly-fishing these waters together for more than 15 years. It’s where I learned to fish and where…

Snoqualmie-Steelhead-TravisGillett-54

  There’s nothing like winter steelheading.   The search for the elusive slivers of chrome in dark green water is wrought with frustration, undeniable joy, and constant anticipation.
