1. Flowing across stark, dazzling tundra landscapes on Russia's remote Kamchatka Peninsula, a handful of rivers are home to Asia's only population of steelhead trout. A group of scientists and flyfishers follow their passions beyond the edge, in order to encounter, understand and protect this magnificent silver fish.

    Sponsorship of The Kamchatka Steelhead Project is open to anglers of all nationalities. For further information, please contact The Fly Shop of Redding, California.

    Протекая сквозь ослепительный ландшафт тундры на отдаленном полуострове Камчатка, несколько рек являются домом для единственной популяции радужной форели в Азии. Группа ученых и нахлыстовиков следуют за своей страстью на край света, чтобы познакомиться, понять и защитить эту великолепную серебристую рыбу.

    Спонсорство проекта Камчатка Стилхед является открытым для рыболовов всех национальностей. Для получения дополнительной информации, пожалуйста, свяжитесь с The Fly Shop, Реддинг, Калифорния.

  2. A couple seasons ago I swapped fly rod for camera and followed my friend, Rich Zellman as he cast for winter-run steelhead. Over countless days, eye traced rod's path, over and over again. And over again. This is what came of that effort.

  3. So to date I’ve spent about 20 days skating dry flies for summer-run steelhead on the North Umpqua River. In June of 2007 I rose one fish. That’s all the action I’ve had. For all my non-steelhead fishing friends, you should know that while this may sound like a masochistic endeavor, it isn’t. Or maybe it is…I don’t know. Anyway, there is something incredibly important hidden in a fishless day spent on the North Umpqua.

    Now, if you’re a river ace like “North” guide, Rich Zellman, however, you sorta defy the norm. Go hang out with him and sooner rather than later you will see an Umpqua steelhead up close.

    To raise a steelhead on a dry is one thing, but to get footage of it is kind of a big deal. Look closely at the seemingly blank swings in the last half. On three separate casts fish visibly dart to the fly and turn away without breaking the surface. If I hadn’t had the vertical perspective, we never would have noticed.

    Getting to see this behaviour provides no extra clue as to what the steelhead is thinking.

  4. This year I have started a filming project with a very good friend who is the river keeper on the River test. Here is a small clip of what we have been up to.

    The project should last around a year, with the final piece covering all the seasons, with a few familiar faces along the way!

    Please get in touch if you would like to know anymore detail regarding the project.
