Fly Fishing For Pacific Northwest Steelhead In Winter

Pacific Northwest Steelhead In Winter

Click Here To Subscribe to the Catch Magazine YouTube Channel ►http://goo.gl/9Z5dTu – Fly fishing for the mighty steelhead is not always pretty, and this issue’s T-Motion theater illustrates the very real deal in the search for Pacific Northwest steelies. The weather during this early spring shoot was as usual; rain, rain and more rain. The rivers rose fast, cleared out, and rose again with each new rain storm. My friend and angler on film, Jack Mitchell, has lived in the Pacific Northwest his entire life and has been guiding and chasing steelhead for most of his years. Despite his expertise, the very real deal of fly fishing for steelhead means that there are no guarantees. It took us many attempts, many hours on the river, and many conversations. Finally we landed a steelhead, but it was what Jack calls “arduous patience” that made it all happen. As in every video shoot, I appreciate the cooperation and joviality of my anglers. Jack is as jovial as they come. What an adventure! Thanks to Jack Mitchell of The Steelhead Ranch http://theeveninghatch.com, and to Eddie Bauer for their generous support.

Photographing Fish

Photographing Fish The Proper Way

Here’s a few simple tips on how to best hold a fish and get a great photograph, without harming the fish.
There’s a lot of debate right now about photographing fish. Like most topics that get blown out of proportion on the internet, this debate is riddled with sensationalized accusations and disinformation. I’ve written about holding fish for photographs but I thought a short video showing how simple and noninvasive it can be would be a big help.

First, I’d like to clarify my stance on the subject. When done properly, I do not see any harm in photographing a fish. Fish are injured by poor handling, not cameras. I have two serious problems with the ‘no photo’ argument. First, it simply doesn’t address the problem. If anglers are mishandling fish, they are doing so while landing them and unhooking them with or without a photo. Demonizing the camera does nothing to stop this and doesn’t save fish. What we should be doing is educating anglers on ethical fish handling. Secondly, the photograph is the bargain that makes catch-and-release fishing work. Whether you like it or not there are simply a lot of anglers who require proof of their catch. It’s much better to give them a photo than a corpse.
