This video comes to you via our local news here in Denver. Pardon the advertisement at the beginning, but this short video clip is definitely worth watching. It tells the story of Craig Horlacher, a geologist who was fishing for cutthroat trout north of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. He slipped in the river, broke his leg and spent 5 days and six nights… in the river. Yes, I said in the river. He caught and ate raw trout to survive. He was eventually found and spent 33 days in the ICU to recuperate. How he survived, I have no idea. Shows you the importance of fishing with a buddy in remote places. — TR
