We’re also excited to have Mikey Wier as our guest presenter. Mikey started and runs Burl Productions. Burl fuses the ski/surf style of video making with the blossoming sport of fly-fishing and environmental awareness. Burl Productions is the first fishing-oriented production to bring non-instructional fishing highlights and entertainment-based videos to the market. Their first release was FISH EYE Fly Fishing Video Magazine in 2001. They then filmed and released FISH EYE 2 the next season. In 2003, Mikey traveled to South America with a couple of up-and-coming fly fisherman from the North West and filmed the first Trout Bum Diaries. In 2006, Burl embarked on a set of trips around the globe to film the ultimate fly-fishing adventure video. They filmed in Mongolia, Brazil, Christmas Island, Belize, Utah, California, Louisiana and the Florida Keys, with some of the most talented anglers on the planet, in search of the “soul of fly-fishing.” The result was SOULFISH, which has been dubbed fly fishing’s answer to the Bruce Brown surf classic, The Endless Summer .
