It has been about a month and a half since the Fly Fishing FilmTour passed through Salt Lake City. I was super impressed with the quality of films that adorned the agenda.
As we look back, we wanted to highlight some of the great films out there. One of the Frenziers favorite was ‘Rivers of a Lost Coast”
At the turn of the 20th Century, a handful of pioneers carried their fly rods into California’s remote north coast and gave birth to a culture that would revolutionize their sport. For a select few, steelhead fly fishing became an obsessive pursuit without compromise.
Leading the pack was the mythical, Bill Schaadt, an off-kilter angler famous for his ruthless pursuit to be ‘in the fish’. The new endeavor was ruled by a demanding, unspoken code, which made ‘breaking in’ almost as difficult as ‘breaking out’.
By the early 1980s, the Golden State’s coastal fisheries found themselves caught in a spiraling decline. As California searched for its disappearing salmon and steelhead, these men foraged for their souls.
Let’s take a peek at the teaser for this great fly fishing film.
