Winter Run – Pacific Northwest Winter Steelhead

T-Motion Theater – Winter Run
Date – January 8 -10

Fishing for winter steelhead is best described by Bill McMillan, fisherman and author of “Dry Line Steelhead” describes winter as being the most difficult of seasons for searching of steelhead on the fly.
The mere challenge of nature’s moody elements, the cold weather as snow and rain, and the limited daylight draws only those anglers who are seeking to experience something beyond the mere fishing itself, even beyond the hooking of the magnificent fish.  Winter steelhead evoke a sort of reverence because, in short, they are extremely hard to come by.  All the elements surrounding the steelhead become even more epic when placed in the severity of winter. Therefore, the preparation, the adventure from sunup to sundown and the struggle of the search for this evocative strain of steelhead in winter conditions is what I tried to capture in this T-Motion Theater “Winter Run”. Like a fairy tale, anglers Jakob Lund and Jeff Hickman set out in blizzard conditions in the early morning light on frigid Pacific Northwest water.  With words from a poet and the desire to fully live an epic adventure on the river, Lund and Hickman find it.  “Winter Run” is the real deal…..Thanks to the two great anglers I filmed, author Bill McMillan, Patagonia and Old Man Winter himself for making this adventure a possibility for us all.
