Kick into fishing gear with free film

The weekend before the opening of fishing season, you and your family can watch a movie that promotes the idea of catch and release.

The Adopt A Stream Foundation will present a free showing of the 30-minute, 16mm film “The Way of Trout” on Friday.

This film was made in 1969 and features an old fisherman and a beautiful rainbow trout. You will be brought into the trout’s underwater world and glimpse the trout’s fight to survive from a variety of predators, including other fish, birds and animals.

The movie’s theme focuses on the fact that man, the trout’s ultimate predator, has the choice to keep her or release her to spawn future generations.

This movie was originally produced for Trout Unlimited.

“It was one of the first films to advocate catch and release,” Adopt A Stream Foundation director Tom Murdoch said. “You will really enjoy seeing this short film that features a wise old fly fisherman and a very large and beautiful female rainbow trout on the Northwest Stream Center’s big screen.”

Before the film is shown, visitors can watch underwater scenes of the life cycle of salmon produced by Japan’s Hokkaido Television and Broadcasting.

After the movie, visitors can go on a short tour of the Northwest Stream Center’s Trout Steam Exhibit, the newest trout stream in Washington state.

The event starts at 7 p.m. Friday at the NW Stream Center at Snohomish County’s McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett. Space is limited so registration is necessary by calling 425-316-8592. For more information go to
