Chasing 24 Carat Gold from Jonathan Jones aka Redbeard on Vimeo.

The film is set in Bolivia, Chasing 24 carat gold – Golden Dorado.
We set out deep in to the jungle, in search of this golden monster. I spent over 8 weeks guiding several groups up and down the Casare River, Pachene River and its several tributaries. After a few days travel up stream, we had made it to base camp and it was from here that the real journey began. These fish live in one of the most amazing jungles in the world and love to hide out in tight and fast moving water that the rivers provide. They hit hard and fight back adding to the excitement of this life changing adventure. In total isolation (no iPhones or instagram) the vast amount of wild life and adrenaline between anglers seems more real than ever.

Steelhead Country Preview

Steelhead Country preview from Wild Steelhead Coalition on Vimeo.

The Wild Steelhead Coalition, Patagonia, and award-winning filmmaker Shane Anderson have teamed up to produce a new film series called Steelhead Country. The six-episode series explores the rise and fall of angling for wild steelhead in Washington State – from the heydey of steelheading on the Puyallup River to the litany of legendary rivers that are now closed throughout Puget Sound, including the mighty Skagit. Follow along as Steelhead Country explores the past, present, and hopeful future for this iconic species.

Washington is Steelhead Country, the epicenter of the wild steelhead world. For generations, Washingtonians have been raised with a fishing rod in their hands and a love of steelhead in the hearts. This passion has proven infectious and inspired anglers from all corners of the globe to make the pilgrimage to the state’s famed waters in search of wild grey ghosts, some reaching sizes found in few other places on earth. But while the allure of Washington’s majestic wild steelhead continues to grow, regrettably the state’s steelhead stocks have suffered the opposite fate, as their numbers have plummeted to a fraction of their once great abundance.

Steelhead Country dives deep into how Washington’s mismanagement of its iconic State Fish has caused the precipitous decline of its wild steelhead populations. Moreover, Steelhead Country encourages the state to move toward a more sustainable, conservation-oriented management model for wild steelhead – a model that preserves angling opportunity while also helping restore and sustain wild runs for future generations. It’s not too late to bring them back.

Stay tuned for the full series coming in September.

USB Device charger with Water Power

Estream

The Estream is about the size of a water bottle and weighs less than 2 pounds. Once submerged in running water, the turbine rotates and generates electricity that gets stored in the Estream’s built-in 6,400mAh battery, which takes about 4.5 hours to fully charge. A full battery should be able to charge up to three smartphones or action cameras. Estream claims that it’s able to charge devices twice as fast as a regular outlet thanks to a quick-charge function read more …….

Esox Lucius Picture and Video

As we move from summer into fall this is one of the prime bite periods for the Esox Lucius, other wise known as Pike.  River Pike become active as water temps start to drop in the late summer, and really feed aggressively on baitfish patterns.  Especially top water flies, with baitfish profiles.  Here is a Northern Pike we found this week. Also below is an impressive video by Austin Green.  It’s 25 mins long, but well worth the watch.  If you don’t follow Austin on the social feeds, I would suggest finding him and watching his work, he does some amazing things with the lens.
