A few weeks ago, Orvis product developer Shawn Brillon—a certified steelhead nut—took his 15-year-old son Riley over to New York’s Salmon River to see if they could catch a chromer. Well, as these pictures attest, the boy’s got the right stuff. Expect to see a lot more of Riley on this blog in the future. Way to go, young man!

It’s a wise young man who knows when it’s time to fish and when it’s time to nap.
