"Rivers of a Lost Coast" Interview

January 9, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

On Fishing Jones, Pete McDonald interviews filmmakers Justin Coupe and Palmer Taylor, whose upcoming “Rivers of the Lost Coast” promises to be a multi-layered account of the history of west coast U.S. steelheading. Though brief, the interview offers some interesting detail about the filmmakers’s subject: “Most of the innovation in California came out of the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club in San Francisco. A lot of the stuff that we take for granted today was designed and refined back in the 40s and 50s by the GGACC, Winston, Powell, Sunset Line, Jimmy Green, Pete Schwab, Jim Pray, Myron Gregory, Buddy Tarantino, Phil Mirravelle.” Don’t miss the anecdote about Ted Lindner’s hatred of Bill Schaadt, either.
