The Greatest Fishing Story Ever Told

A blast from the past from Scott Carrier in Esquire.

The remote Yunnan Province of southwest China. A land of twenty-thousand-foot peaks and endless rivers cut through bottomless gorges, of jagged glaciers and cold mountain lakes. A fly fisherman's paradise. Or so we thought.

Keep the Wild Wild Tour

The Wild Steelhead Coalition is proud to present, with support from Patagonia, a seven-city film tour featuring North Fork Studios/Shane Anderson’s Wild Reverence. In ten days the tour will kick off in Spokane and then head to Bozeman and Boise before making its way back for some west coast venues. The goal of the film and the tour is to raise awareness and a call to action to protect wild steelhead and their habitat.

Tickets for all the shows are available via Ticket River and links are provided below. Following the screening in Seattle there will be a tour wrap party hosted by Tini Bigs which is just a short walk from the theater.

About Wild Reverence: Filmmaker Shane Anderson made a pilgrimage to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state to the rivers he once fished as a boy. His relationship with the wild steelhead and the rivers in which they met upon taught him just how precious life can be. What was once a childhood fishing trip has evolved into a journey to find answers why his favorite fish is disappearing from the rivers and appearing on the Endangered Species list. How could this wild and beautiful creature slip toward the abyss of extinction?

WILD REVERENCE embarks on a quest to begin a movement to enact real change not only for the steelhead but for all ecosystems.


Striped Bass Need Your Help!

Here is your chance to make a difference for striped bass.

The Atlantic coastal states and jurisdictions have scheduled hearings to gather public comment on Draft Amendment lV to Amendment 6 to the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Striped Bass.

Captain John McMurray explains how you can make a difference by attending one of the public hearings or by sumbitting a written comment.

Below is a comment crafted by Stripers Forever that you can e-mail to Mike Waine, Fishery Management Plan Coordinator. (Subject line: Draft Addendum IV.)

I believe that reductions in striped bass quotas should conserve the greatest number of large fish in the shortest amount of time. It has taken way too long to get a commitment to conservation while the harvesting limits have stayed level in spite of a documented decline in the species.... especially the large breeders. I support the 25% reduction in quota in one year, the elimination of all trophy seasons, and conservative maximum size restrictions protecting fish over 34" in length.
