Fly Fishing Videos
This is a fly fishing film that consists of the beauty of Alaska mixed with a lot of underwater footage of amazing salmon schools. Our flies pass by them, and often times they are seen peeling away to chase our presentations. It was fun to capture this on film! Alaska is a very special place for fly fishing. There is a broad myth that many of the salmon caught in Alaska are snagged. This has not been my experience during any of my three trips there.
I filmed this in 2014 when a few of my brothers and I took an Alaska fly fishing trip that had many memorable moments. It was a good salmon run that year for the chum and silver salmon. We hooked up with a few aggressive rainbows as well. All of which ate the Tungsten Embryo egg pattern.
One of my favorite accomplishments of the film was by my brother Brad. He had never been fly fishing before, and after only a few days he was casting like he’d been doing it for year. He is the guy in the film double hauling and throwing the tight loops.
I teamed up with Rainy’s Flies on this project. They have a great selection of flies for all species of salmon. They produce great quality flies that don’t fall apart. Check them out at http://www.rainysflies.com/
We visited our good friends the Butlers and caught many amazing fish each day. Alaska fishing has never been so much fun for me.
This year I took a big step as a filmmaker in the fly fishing industry. I teamed up with saltwater anglers Mark Martin and Alex Beck from Angler’s Eye Media and spent a few days in San Diego putting together a project on fly fishing for tuna. I’m sure tuna will surprise many of you, as I was surprised they are crazy amazing fish, not just found in a can 🙂 We initially had hoped to get the film into one of the industries top film festivals, and I’m happy to say that we accomplished that.
The International Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4) has officially selected our film “Wide Open” to be shown around to globe in 2016.
The IF4 kicks off in Denver on January 8th, and will be making a stop in Orem Utah on March 3rd, so if you are in the area save the date! Exciting to say the least!
