Late last fall I got together with Catch Magazine's Todd Moen and Jakob Lund of Salmonfly Syndicate. Our goal, to capture the essence of Pacific Northwest steelheading in a short video. We decided to go out on a limb and explore a small remote unknown drainage. Despite the challenges of moody fish, we ventured into uncharted territory, a fast rising river, cold and extremely wet weather, and we struck gold!! What we found exceeded any of our expectations. Beautiful scenery, beautiful fish and a battle for the record books, all captured in a stunning way by Todd Moen's artistic eye in Fall Run. This video is one to remember, and it does a great job of summarizing why so many anglers obsess over steelhead. Here is the trailer for Fall Run, an official 2013 Fly Fishing Film Tour selection. You won't want to miss it!
