According to Bill McMillan author of "Dry Line Steelhead," winter is the most difficult of seasons for steelhead on the fly. The mere challenge of nature's moody elements, the cold weather, and limited daylight, draws only those anglers who seek to experience something beyond the fishing itself. Winter steelhead evoke a reverence because, in short, they are extremely hard to come by. All the magic surrounding steelhead becomes even more epic when placed in the severity of winter. The preparation, the adventure and the struggle of the search in winter conditions for these elusive fish is what Todd Moen captures in this short film originally produced in January of 2013.

Music - Thriller Dark Island by The Sound Room
A short movie about the melancholy moments in fly fishing. The movie is an antidote to the super-pumped soundtracks that accompany most fly fishing movies and don't quite fit with the subject. It was shot using Winsnes Fly Fishing Lodge in Norway as a base and the footage was shot in on the stretch of the Gaula river managed by the lodge and surrounding mountain lakes.
The soundtrack was recorded at the Lax Cafe and Pub in Norway and features Eirin and Astrid playing to a live audience.
