    Trailer Trash Thursday "Keepemwet edition"

    Joel La Follette - Wednesday, February 03, 2016

    This week I grabbed a vintage F3T favorite by Bryan Huskey. I'm sure you will remember it fondly.  After the film, take a few minutes to check out Keepemwet Fishing and enter their Instagram contest. You could win a new Scott G2 fly rod! 

    Doc of The Drakes- "Hit 'em Again Doc!" 5 min Short from bryan huskey on Vimeo.

    As a young child on the Oregon Coast, then another decade in Central Oregon, there aren't many Oregon river banks that photographer and filmmaker Bryan Huskey hasn't scrambled along. The better part of a dozen more years in Boise, Idaho have provided the formative inspiration for his work, particularly photographing fish of these regions.

    During a presentation in 2010 he coined the phrase "Keep 'Em Wet" encouraging photographers to get their cameras closer and leave fish in the water. With the rise of camera phones and social media he turned that phrase into #keepemwet, promoting better handling of fish photographed before release. Since then the tag has developed into a movement, and Bryan now devotes his time to promoting this awareness with Keepemwet Fishing. He is also an ambassador for Fishpond USA and member of Scott Fly Rods pro staff.

    2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour

    Joel La Follette - Thursday, January 15, 2015
    Here is the line up for this year's Fly Fishing Film Tour! I've included a sneak peek at Salt 365 warm you up a bit. You can view all the trailers on the Tour's website.
    NOTE: Not all films will play at every screening

    SALT 365 Official Trailer from Tight Loop Media on Vimeo.

    SALT 365 ~ Tight Loop Media and Paul Pryor Films
    Location: California
    Species: Dorodo, Calico Bass 
    Description: Two lifelong surfers living in Orange County California, and from opposites ends of the earth, forge a strong, late in life friendship through their shared passion for the obscure sport of saltwater fly fishing. A peek behind the Orange curtain into the Southern California ocean lifestyle through the lives of Capt. Vaughn Podmore & Keith Munemitsu.

    CO2LD WATERS ~ Conservation Media
    Location: Montana

The film stars Craig Mathews of Blue Ribbon Flies, Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia, Steve Hemkens of Orvis, Tim Romano of Angling Trade, and Todd Tanner of Conservation Hawks. The film looks at the single biggest threat to the future of angling: Climate Change.

    YOW: ICELANDIC FOR YES! ~ Tributaries Digital Cinema
    Location: Iceland

    Species: Atlantic Salmon
    Description: The thing is: it’s not just a word, it’s a feeling — it’s smiling with a pull of whiskey after a long day in the rain, it’s believing in the unknown. From rendezvousing with 16th generation farmers while discovering un-fished rivers to sitting in lonely line-ups while the snow falls — Iceland’s landscape and culture is an incredible background in which to chase the Yow.

    90 MILES ~ World Angling
    Location: Cuba
    Species: tarpon, bonefish, permit
    Description: 90 Miles is the physical distance between the Florida Keys and Cuba. It is what connects us and what separates us. This film is the first documentary that WorldANGLING has ever produced in a foreign location and what an incredibly cool place to start. Flats fishing for tarpon, bonefish and permit is big business in the Florida Keys. Annually, these three species generate roughly 475 million in revenue in Monroe county Fl. This fact has been noticed by the Cuban government as they
    consider their own fishery and the nascent eco tourism industry that is taking shape there. Will Benson travelled to Cuba as part of a scientific outreach mission with the Bonefish Tarpon Trust in November 2013 to investigate the fishery, the culture, the philosophy of conservation and the attitudes of fishermen on the other side of the Gulf Stream. What we learned during this mission was that we are connected to Cuba in many ways, and there is much to learn and share between our cultures. One possibility, is that the Florida Keys bonefish are in fact cuban born and that our fishery in the Keys is heavily dependent on the breeding stock from Cuba. 90 Miles is a story about the natural connections all around us and possibility of working together to protect and shepherd our fisheries.

    MONGOLIA ~ Beattie Outdoor Productions
    Location: Mongolia
    Species: Taimen
    Description: Ask one of the main characters in this film, conservationist and wilderness guide Charlie Conn (Director of the Taimen Fund), what this film is about and he’ll humbly tell you, “this is a conservation documentary about our work protecting Taimen (hucho hucho taimen) in Mongolia.” While the underlying focus of the film is the conservation work being done in Mongolia to protect the largest salmonid species in the world, the film is actually a combination of various meandering storylines – flowing together into a cohesive examination of what happens when passionate people come together to protect and properly manage a resource before a ecosystem is subject to 1st world development. Like many countries on the planet, Mongolia is rapidly transitioning from yesterday to tomorrow – leaving a wilderness, numerous wild species and a rich local culture hanging in the balance between two emerging demographics: those participating in the centuries old nomadic existence and a growing population eager to bring Mongolia to the 21st century. As many living in the later know to be true, the luxuries of the 21st century are grand – but oftentimes come with great cost to the natural world around us. All too often, conservation efforts are reactionary. Generation after generation is left picking up the pieces of shattered ecosystems. In many ways, Mongolia is different. Mongolia is an opportunity to conserve before the worst of the damage is inflicted. And most importantly, if successful, Mongolia could be a model for others to follow.

    BREAKING THROUGH: THE STORY OF LARRY FIVECOATS ~  Scott Thompson
    Location: Colorado
    Species: Trout
    Description: Larry Fivecoats served with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam in 1966 and 1967. In that time, Larry was involved in over 150 firefights and witnessed very heavy casualties. When he returned from war, he found himself struggling with the lasting symptoms of PTSD and depression, and began to contemplate suicide. Then Larry was introduced to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.

    THOSE MOMENTS ~ Peter Christensen
    Location: Bahamas, Alaska, British Columbia
    Species: Trout, Steelhead, Bonefish
    Description: THOSE MOMENTS is a feature film for the 2015 fly fishing festival cycle, following fly fishing guides on their day off. We start in Alaska with Hawkeye and Zac searching for giant, flesh-eating rainbows on the Kanektok River, then join Torrie and Josie on Andros, Bahamas, for some mellow bonefishing and finish in British Columbia, where Scott and Kara swing for steel on the Dean River.

    OUT OF TOUCH ~ Shallow Water Expeditions
    Location: Louisiana
    Species: Redfish
    Description: Our lives are run by technology and sometimes its just better to be ‘Out of Touch’ and just have fun. David Mangum of Shallow Water Expeditions Guide Service takes us on an adventure in search of Redfish off the Louisiana coast. All the while cells phones remain in the car – where they should be when Fly Fishing the unexplored.

    BUCKNASTY BROWNS ~ Montana Wild
    Location: Western United States
    Species: Trout
    Description: Last June, the Montana Wild crew was thirsty for some fly fishing. Black bear season was over but spring run-off most certainly was not, leaving few options for clear waters around Missoula. Zack, Travis and Sam decided to make the haul from Western Montana down to Eastern Oregon and check out a tiny, mysterious tailwater in the desert. This film is about a fly-flinging good time chasing some bucknasty brown trout who like to eat mice almost as much as mayflies.

    (Montana-wild.com)

    CARPLAND ~ Beattie Outdoor Productions
    Location: United States
    Species: Carp
    Description: Carpland is a documentary-style adventure film about the history of carp in the United States. This non-native invasive species was introduced to U.S. waterways as a food source, and quickly spread to almost every state within a century. Prized around much of the world as a desirable menu item – and in some areas as a game fish – the name carp carries negative connotations in the U.S. pertaining to its value as table-fare and a sport fish. They pose a significant threat to numerous wild ecosystems and native flora and fauna. They’re also an adaptive species, thriving in waterways too damaged by pollution to support native species – providing angling opportunities for urban populations. Carp’s short history in North America spawns many questions about their role and future here. How did this desirable food fish fall from grace in households around the country? Why is one of the strongest and most desired international game fish overlooked by anglers in America? How do we protect wild areas and native species from being overrun with this invasive species? Should we support carp populations in areas where native species have vanished due to pollution? We’ll investigate these questions, and more. Stay tuned.

    THE LOST BOYS OF YANTARNI ~ Fly Out Media
    Location: Alaska
    Species: Salmon
    Description: The Lost Boys of Yantarni is the story of the quirky few, stubborn enough to live and work on one of the most rugged and formidable outreaches of the Alaska Peninsula – a Neverland practically unknown to the angling world. The allure? – giant, dime bright, Coho Salmon that charge into these mile-long rivers with a seek-and-destroy mentality. 
Mother Nature still keeps secrets here, never really showing her hand. For the guys running the place, outwitting her is a daily battle. Severe weather, four-legged locals, and never-ending chores stack the odds against them.
“Oh, the glory of being a guide in Alaska . . .”
