Why bother making a film about dams if you don’t have footage of one blowing up?

Yvon Chouinard reinvented the ice ax, developed the first wetsuits to include sustainable merino wool, and built the Patagonia clothing company from a few pairs of canvas shorts in 1973 to the $600 million business it is today. Now Chouinard has another ambition: He wants to sell you a piece of fish.

This steelhead short made its first appearance almost 4 years ago on You Tube where it garnered over 140K views.
Well it's back, this time on Vimeo, and certainly worth watching again.
The denizens of the Kettle River are at risk due to a myriad of threats. Thanks to the leadership of one dedicated advocate it may finally be getting the attention it deserves.
A picturesque and winding trout stream, the Kettle begins its 280 kilometre journey at Holmes Lake in the Monashee Mountains, flows though the Christian Valley to Westbridge where it is joined by the West Kettle, and ends at the Columbia River in Washington State.
The river is home to several species of fish, including wild stock (fluvial species) rainbow trout that can grow to trophy sizes in perfect conditions.
For fly-fishers who love rivers, it’s nearly as good as it gets.
