Hit'em Again Doc!

Nobody intended to make a sequel to Doc of the Drakes. It was a coincidence that Silver Creek Outfitters cameras even ended up on the water with Pete and Doc again this past summer. But the hyper-enthusiasm and sincere nature of SCO guide Pete Wood draws attention so easily. Equally engaging is Dr Robert Franklin, who at 85 had been on an incredible journey over the prior 6 months, persuading a panel of neurosurgeons to perform a rare brain stimulation procedure to treat debilitating symptoms he suffered from Parkinson's Disease.

Just 5 weeks since the surgery, Doc's condition had greatly improved. High in the mountains of central Idaho, cutthroat trout were carelessly sipping dry flies and Doc's fluke spat of missing hook-sets on Silver Creek was a distant memory. The camera follows along as two friends enjoy the most life has to offer, one incredible fish at a time.
