I got the opportunity to go trout fishing in Northeastern Iowa in an area called the "driftless area."
This area is incredible. I hope I get to go back sometime when I have more time to explore. I don't think I can do it justice with a write-up. So I'll just say that the trout were wild and tough to catch (but we managed a few) and post the few pictures I took. I wish I had taken more pictures because this area is fantastic--unfortunately I only managed a few pictures.
