Fly Fishing!

OUR FIRST SHORT FILM! - THIS IS TROUT SPEY

It has been so much fun to work on our YouTube Channel!

With nearly 40 videos already in 2019, we decided to work on a short film. Centering around the fly fishing technique of “trout spey,” we hope to show how much we love to chase trout using 2-handed fly rods, known as spey rods.

Watch as we talk about our passion for spey fishing and for taking our wonderful guests out on the river to tangle with some feisty rainbow trout on big rods!
