COVER: RAINBOW TROUT

Photograph by David Goodnow

The rainbow on our cover is doing what comes naturally—leaping—at the sting of a fly's hook. No trout matches the rainbow's reputation as an aerial performer, and probably no trout has been as widely introduced. This native of the U.S. West has been stocked in New Zealand, Chile, East Africa and Europe, to name a few far places. In French Canada they call this splendid fish arc-en-ciel—literally "arch in the sky"—and Horace Sutton reports on the unusual trout fishing there in an article on page 64.
