Drowned Drones: When a Multicopter Hits the Water

While the price of a GoPro rigged quadcpter is such that even Joe Grabasandwich can shoot aerial footage for his next fly fishing film, always remember these word of advice, drones and water don't mix.  While a $1,600 hundred fully tricked out GoPro gimbel rigged DJI quadcpter  may be within reach for many, it's still going to sting if it goes for swim. 

Eric Cheng explains.


The payoff when it all goes right.

Spatsizi F3T Trailer 

At roughly 2 million acres, the Spatsizi Wilderness in northern British Columbia, is the home waters for the Collingwood Family of Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge. This film documents Ray Collingwood's vision, beginning in the late 60's, to operate a world-class rainbow trout fly-fishing lodge with his family. With stunning aerial footage of the Skeena Mts and Firesteel River Valley, including birds-eye views from Ray Collingwood's multiple float planes, Todd Moen captures the essence of family in this fly-fishing heaven.


An International Fly Fishing Film of Contrast and Commonality

Tributaries is a journey to uncover the commonality among different cultures, people and water. It explores the contrasting experiences of three diverse guides – a Bahamian flats-drifter, a Patagonian trout bum and a Viking-blooded Icelander. Three stories merging into one: a tribute to the world’s water. Tributaries is an official selection of the 2014 F3T and 2014 Rise film festivals.

Full-length downloads are available at and begin at $4.

Her name is whispered in mythic reverence

Kiss the Water is now available to rent or purchase.

In a cottage in northern Scotland, Megan Boyd twirled bits of feather, fur, silver and gold into elaborate fishing flies - at once miniature works of art and absolutely lethal. Wherever men and women cast their lines for the mighty Atlantic salmon, her name is whispered in mythic reverence, and stories about her surface and swirl like fairy tales. With breathtaking cinematography and expressive, hand painted animation, Kiss the Water adheres to and escapes from traditional documentary form, spinning the facts and fictions of one woman's life into a stunning film about craft, devotion, love, and its illusions.
