Field Reports - Bozeman Save Wild Steelhead Festival

Swsfposter

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.

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.

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.

Head Into The Shed!

Firefoxscreensnapz002

Just in from the The Cleanest Line

Today Patagonia launched the Tin Shed, a multimedia mini-site that's loaded with dispatches from our friends and ambassadors traveling the wilder world -- in high-quality video, audio and the written word.

The Tin Shed:

... once was home to the whole company, when we were a small band of friends who made great climbing gear, guaranteed. Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia's founder, forged his pitons in here. The rest of us drilled hexes, assembled ice axes, or inspected rope (or slacked off when the surf was up).

The Tin Shed:

... still stands a and stands for all we hold close and dear, though there are more of us: for great clothes and gear, guaranteed, and a love of wild places. What once housed the heavy equipment now holds our stories.

Join us this fall in the Tin Shed to find the latest dispatches from our friends and ambassadors in the wilder world a in high-quality video, audio and the written word.

Head into the Shed! LINK

As you explore the shed you'll find some fly fishing film clips from the genre's finest filmmakers: Burl Productions, Rollcast Productions and AEG Media.

If you're unfamiliar with the history of the brand be sure to click on the Chouinard Equipment sign once you're inside.
