BTS Guide Cam: Side Channel Shangri-La

Bighorn Trout Shop Guide Cam

Matt King hooks and lands a beautiful brown trout in a side channel of the Bighorn River. Bighorn Trout Shop guide, David Palmer, is responsible for spotting the fish, untangling the line from the bushes, netting the fish, and running the guidecam. Such a versatile man! There are reports that David later wrestled an aggressive grizzly bear, and gave mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a drowning muskrat, but these exploits aren’t fully documented.  Footage was taken on July 26, 2011. Water level was 12,000 cfs.
