Fishing with my Sister

My family was here the last couple weeks. It was a great time. I don't get to see them often enough and it was good to spend some quality time with the parents and the little sister. I was able to make it out on the water with all three of them during their visit. With wildfires affecting West Riverside just east of Missoula, I headed out to Rock Creek with my sister. It was her second time fly fishing (and the first time since the late 90s). I thought she picked up on things pretty quickly and was casting with relative ease by the end of the day. No monsters were caught, it is Rock Creek after all, but it was a great day out on the water with my sister. I just wish I could have helped her catch a fish on the fly. Enjoy.

 P.S. Check out the Troutrageous T! Shirt appearance. It's nice.

Damn. LO FI is clogging digital toilets.

The guys at just dropped their most recent digital turd....and IT HUGE. A digital toilet clogger of sorts. It's got everything you want out of a fly fishing short, specifically a monster of a fish and amazing use of color correction. I have some work to do to catch up. Enjoy.

____ in a Barrel

Fill in the blank. This edit/video/film is decidedly longer than any of my recent edits/videos/films. There is a reason for that. On Monday, the fishing on the Ruby was in a word, epic. As such, the edit/video/film is epic (in terms of length).

The combination of overcast skies, cloudy water, and a healthy brown trout fishery produced the best day of streamer fishing a fisherperson could ask for. Bucko, who has fly fished for 9 years, agreed. Sometimes trips are about the journey, the experience, the surroundings. This trip was about all of those things, but mostly it was about some stupid good fishing.

From 11 am to 6pm, the Ruby River's brown trout threw themselves with reckless abandon at our streamer offerings. Often times following the streamer from bank to bank, then breaching the surface to mash on some articulated goodness.

Around six in the evening, the fishing was interrupted by a massive thunderstorm. Following the storm and a little dinner, we returned. Fish were rising. Rainbows and browns were boiling at the surface. Trout were everywhere they should be and they were seemingly eating anything that was well presented in front of them. Bucko and I doubled up at least five times that evening. Then, as if it could have gotten any better, Bucko landed a 27" brown trout. The longest of his life.

I had too much footage from this trip. I had enough footage that I included the misses and my bleeped reactions to said misses. Enjoy in HD.
