Video from a return trip home this fall for steelhead season on a river I have fished since I was 12 years old. I got to fish with a bunch of close friends, including Brazda and Shawn in the video, and have to shout out to Keven S. and Aaron "The Theory". Along with those mentioned, I got to catch up with a ton of old buddies and had a blast. From a filming standpoint I have always liked the snowboard style movies where each rider has a segment focused on them, so went that direction with this short.
All fishing was done swinging flies with two handed rods, and any fish that is out of the water are hatchery fish, and were subsequently dispatched per state law. Any fish that remain in the water the whole time are native fish and were carefully handled and released.
