A commentary on fly fishing as only Tom Brokaw could tell it.
"Joe changed our fly fishing world as no one else has. If you are an avid fly fisherman and under the age of 50, chances are you have never heard of Joe Brooks, but you owe him a debt of gratitude. One of Joe's greatest gifts to fly fishermen is that he opened up the world to all those who followed. Fly fishermen today jump on airplanes to test the waters of the upper Amazon Basin, the trout streams and lakes of New Zealand, and the distant atolls of the South Pacific. But no one dared or thought of this until Joe opened up the doors."
This is a film about a man who was the epitome of the word “sportsman.”

Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley introduced a bill to designate more than 100,000 acres of public lands in Oregon as the “Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary.”
The Oregon senators named their legislation in honor of Frank Moore because of his outstanding accomplishments starting in World War II and then continuing for nearly two decades as the proprietor of the Steamboat Inn along the North Umpqua River. Throughout his life, Moore has shared his passion for fishing, the river, and the outdoors with visitors from all over the world.
