Fly Fishing Film Tour Launch is Urinal Cake Free


The 2009 Fly Fishing Film Tour officially launched in Colorado Springs last Thursday, Patagonia man on the scene Matty O.  filed this report.


The Fly Fishing Film Tour got off to a good start last night with the event benefiting Project Healing Waters down in Colorado Springs. Good attendance - probably 250 folks - and a classic new-school blue grass band called Grass It Up. They did some hilarious covers of Prince and KC & the Sunshine Band - a good time had by all.


The film selections were quite good and everyone left stoked to get on the water. The venue was a lot different than expected but the owners donated the space which you can’t beat. A couple photos for you (the urinal shot is a just a little reminder that Fenway and Gill Stadium are not the only places on earth with such fine receptacles!)… I'll have a full post on RMPFF soon.


A new addition to the product line?

Show me the money: 2009 Fly Fishing Film Tour


Just chatted with TR at AEG and it looks like the wallet is opening this year.  They'd like to announce that $5k is up for reward during the Fly Fishing Film Tour

The film tour has also expanded for 2009 and is now available for licensing.  If you're in a market that isn't on the circuit why not host it and make a little DIY coin? email AEG Media if interested.

Field Reports - Bozeman Save Wild Steelhead Festival


Three reports from the Bozeman Save Wild Steelhead Festival that took place in on November 5th. This fund raising event was conceived, organized and flawlessly executed by the Fly Boys and featured their film Raising the Ghost. Along with other film clips and steelhead media one of the highlights of the evening was Patagonia presenting a check for five thousand dollars to the Wild Steelhead Coalition.

Fly-fishing fanatic and Patagonia field report writer, Dylan Tomine, shares his experience at a recent steelhead-conservation fundraiser in Bozeman, Montana. 

Just back from the Bozeman Save Wild Steelhead Festival and thought I’d report in. I know what you’re thinking – I thought it too: What the heck is a steelhead event doing in Montana, of all places? A fundraiser for a species that doesn’t even live there, on a school night in November, during a severely spiraling economy? No way.

LINK (Via: The Cleanest Line)

Wild Steelhead Coalition is proud to have been a part of the Save Wild Steelhead Festival in Bozeman, Montana. Despite a tough economy, weeknight schedule and a geographic location that has never even seen a steelhead, the Bozeman angling, arts and conservation community turned out in droves to support the event created by the FlyBoys, Paul Tarantino and Josh Brandner.

LINK (Via: The Wild Steelhead Coalition)

The first ever Save Wild Steelhead Festival went off Nov. 5th 2008 with an overwhelming response from audience members, sponsors, and advocates. The overall consensus was that it was a huge success. Team Fly Boys with the help of presenting sponsors Patagonia and RL Winston organized a multimedia fundraising event to save wild steelhead. Fly Fishing community members came from all over to support the cause.

David James Duncan Suing The River Why Filmmakers


In all the excitement surrounding the film adaptation of The River Why, ever wonder why the guy who wrote the book was strangely absent from all the publicity?

Duncan v. Cohen, 2008 WL 2891065 (N.D. Cal.)

Duncan sued defendants, including the Sierra Club, based on Thomas Cohen and Kristi Cohen’s attempts to make a film of Duncan’s book The River Why.  He alleged copyright infringement and various state-law claims.

Countdown to launch


The latest update from Felt Soul Media.

Red Gold, our first feature length documentary film will premiere at the Telluride Mountainfilm festival over Memorial Day weekend in May.We've been working on it for over a year now and we're both proud parents of a film that we hope will provide better awareness of the Pebble Mine/Bristol Bay subject. Our inspiration to make films was born at Mountainfilm and we promise it'll be worth the journey if you can make it.
We hope to have Red Gold on DVD in late June, available at www.feltsoulmedia.com and plan to have a limited edition Blu-Ray DVD later in the summer.
It is still not too late to support our film effort.We are wrapping up the credit list in the next week and we could still use any support you can contribute to the effort. All donations are tax deductible and if you donate over $500 your name will appear in the credits of Red Gold, but please hurry as we are almost all wrapped up...
We also have some new american apparel felt soul t-shirts on our website under "the merch" - please check them out. If you are curious where the design came from, ben explains on "the wire."

Trout Bum Diaries: Volume II New Zealand


Although he doesn't know it yet, Bennett and I received our copy of the Trout Bum Diaries Volume II: New Zealand on Friday.  After a weekend of truck shopping, wife induced chores, and only one trout landed (although it WAS 20 inches and full of chaos), I inserted the DVD into the player.  Beer in hand and dog on feet, I give it two thumbs (and a swollen groin) up. 

Davy, Owens, Crump, Jill and the gang at AEG have evolved nicely with their second crack at fly fishing filmography.  Volume II: New Zealand is now available for sale at fly shops and at AEG dot com
