Gary Cima of Bend, Oregon has told us about the films his son, Joe, has been making with Mountain Made Media in this, the third film we are highlighting, it's all about steelhead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steelhead are one of the most revered species for a fly fisherman to catch and those cold, foggy mornings spent along a coastal stream call to the very soul of the fly fisherman. Chrome, the color of strength, stamina and survival; the epic journey that steelhead go on, make them the a truly special fish. These steelhead literally ride the tide into the clean, cold rivers that reach into the ocean...on a mission to return to their home waters.

 

In late January we had a great weekend, chasing steel along the southern coast of Oregon; it was a trip we'll never forget...chasing sea lice-covered chromers on the fly...It doesn't get any better than that!

Good little trailer for sure...though I am not sure about Winter steelheading when everything in the vid was green and wet, not white and frozen like Canadian (or Alaskan) winters (ok, Southern BC may be green and wet in the winter). LOVE that virtually all the fishing in the trailer was eggs patterns beneath indicators! That'll set off them pesky lead-eyed chicken chuckers (aka Spey fishers)....HAH. Yea, the trailer showed a couple token spey scenes...but ALL the fish caught...were indicator. WOOooHOoooo. King Joe Outa Here!
