Using footage Todd captured years ago; Todd aims to tell the simple story of what it’s like for a fly fishing angler to spend a few days trying to catch a Pacific Northwest Winter Run steelhead on a swung fly. It’s not just about the catch. The real story is in the process, the getting there, the weather, the waiting, the failing, the final hookup, and the land.
Jeff Hickman, co-owner of Fish the Swing and Kimsquit Bay Lodge in British Columbia, has a very few-and-far-between guide’s day off on a mighty coastal river that empties into the ocean on the Oregon Coast. A relaxed soundtrack accompanies more natural sounds than what you might find on Todd’s past work. Capturing beauty shots of the river with nature surrounding Jeff, Todd drives home the vibe he’s after. Relax, chill out, take a breath of fresh air…and enjoy the sounds & visuals of this new film.
