About Me

  • About mbchilton
    I started fishing with my dad at age 3. In junior high I picked up fly fishing by practicing in the front yard and at local farm ponds. Growing up I mostly fished for bass. Just in the last couple years I've realized how great a place The Driftless Area is, and as a result I'm fishing more often with a fly rod.

A couple years ago I went trout fishing in Iowa for the first time. My boss / fishing buddy took me over to the Second Avenue Bait Shop in Des Moines and told me to buy this book called “Iowa Trout Streams” by Jene Hughes. He being my boss I did as I was told.

Friday morning we left Des Moines around 9AM. We arrived in Decorah about 12:30 for lunch at a little spot called La Rana. It's a cozy little cafe that uses locally grown meat and produce. For being a small town, Decorah...
