Sorry Campers. Summer is over.
There is nothing like trying something new to refresh your outlook on life. While this week's video is a bit on the "home movie" side, it still brought a smile to my face. Love to see kids outside enjoying the world around us, especially on the water. I also loved to see the care that these two youngsters take in handling fish. Some of the pros out there could use a lesson from these gals! Take a kid fishing this weekend, or be a kid.
I was doing my normal search for TTT videos and suddenly realized "I know that guy!" Kevin Callaway makes his acting debut in this short film that documents a peaceful trip to the Deschutes at Mecca Flats... This might not win him an Oscar or even a Trashy Award, but he can at least write off the fishing trip now. I'm not sure if we'll see more of Kevin in similar rolls in the future as his press agent didn't return my calls this week. It is likely though that you will catch a glimpse of this rising film star on a Trout stream near you so you can at least get an autograph.
While this video was NOT filmed on the Metolius I thought maybe it would get you fired up for one of our favorite hatches. Even though it is a relatively short lived hatch we carry a wide selection of patterns in the shop. Next to the evasive Shad run, Green Drakes on the Metolius is all Nick ever talks about. While Josh has two full boxes of Green Drake patterns just for this time of year. I’ll admit I have been known to disappear for a “meeting” when the weather is warm and clouds are in the forecast….
I resently explored some privates lake in eastern Oregon that had some monster Trout residing in them. Nothing like this though. This isn't your Trillium Lake adventure...
One of the hardest things about doing a weekly feature is, well, it comes weekly. Finding a worthy video for Trailer Trash Thursday is becoming much harder in this day of head mounted GoPros and cheap video drones. Yesterday I was about to give up when I came upon this fantastic piece of fly fishing entertainment. Hallelujah!
