Movie Monday: Headed Home

Today, I wanted to go a different route than we have with previous Movie Monday releases. This isn't your traditional fly fishing film. It's centered around much more of a story than most videos, and I think that's why it resonated so well with me. Shot in Finland, this video entitled "Headed Home" really gets to the heart of what fly fishing is all about...

Vintage Fly Fishing in Alaska

Continuing the theme of Throwback Thursday, I scoured up this old video about fly fishing in Alaska. It's a gem, because it shows us a glimpse into the Katmai area of the state, long before the issues that plague it were even considered. And, as the narrator says, it's rare for a cast in the Brooks River to not hook a fish. If you already didn't have enough...

GIANT Stillwater Rainbow Trout Fly Fishing

This film sees Gilbert and Phil Tuttle fishing for some remarkably nice rainbow trout in stillwater. As an angler who's not great at fishing stillwater, seeing a film like this makes me want to up my game.

Throwback Thursday: Minipi River Brook Trout

Old fishing stories are part of the lifeblood of this sport. I'm sure all of us can recall a few old stories from dad or grandpa, about lunker trout or bass in local streams and ponds which are now devoid of fish - or gone completely. Those stories always get me nostalgic for what fishing must have been like 50 or 60 years ago. And though I'll never know...
