Return home with full time steelhead guide Tom Larimer to fish with a few of the guys who “Cracked the Code” on swinging flies for steelhead in the midwest. Soul-roller Dave Pinczkowski, close friend Jay Niederstadt, and veteran guides Jeff Hubbard and Greg Senyo spend long days fishing with Tom on their home rivers. Urban streams surrounded by a sprawling metropolis, wilderness spring creeks, large tail water rivers, and slate bottom spate rivers all suffering the lowest flows since 1944 present a mountain of challenges for the anglers.
The Bonus Features section of the DVD presents media from our sponsors: Sage, Simms, Airflo, and Western Rivers Conservancy.
ABOUT THE FILMAKER:
Jeff Mishler directed national television commercials for twelve years while maintaining his addiction to steelhead fishing. Four seasons in Kamchatka and running a guide business took a toll on the life and times of the veteran film director. In 2004, the fishing won the professional tug of war and he settled back into his hometown of Portland, Oregon with his wife and family where he runs New Water Media. Jeff’s writing and photography is published in The Drake, Fly Rod and Reel, Grays Sporting Journal, Salmon Trout Steelheader, Salmon and Steelhead Journal.
