The Fisheye Guy, Pat Clayton, recently published a notable blog post, titled “High Country Cutthroat.” Pat has spent considerable time in the backcountry studying and photographing these remarkable fish in the high mountain lakes they call home. His words and photography offer a sense of what life is like for these backcountry salmonids, and how they are uniquely adapted to “rule the roost” in this remote and rugged environment.
