    Keep every hatchery fish. You're helping wild fish by doing it.

    I will get hold of the guys and see when the release date is for the new flick. I will try to get them to come back to Bellingham again.

    Looks like some pretty impressive footage (did you see those damn aerials?). I know they are adding some material on steelhead conservation and how we all need to play a part, but I don't think it is a conservation film.

    I was however bummed to see the jet-boat being used. I think jet boats pay disrespect to the fish and the rivers....but that's just me.

    Fish-on, hopefully an AEG/Fly Fishing Film Tour party in our near future!

    Some of the locations that they fished and are going to fish this Fall you can only get to by boat due to a pure lack of access.

    Hey Mike, you know I was thinking about that boat. Looks home made, but white caps stopped 'em dead in their tracks. What if they would have had been screwed cuz someone had gone rotten in the woods. Infections, fractures, hypothermia, bear mauling or whatever. We should let them know we could hire out as medical consultants.

    The word is from Justin Crump that they will be coming again this winter with the Film Tour. No particular date as of yet but my guess is late winter early spring again.

    I know the equipment (film crew, etc) would be tough to get in there on a tight budget without the jet-boat, but it can be done (I've done some crazy shit like that;)):beer2:

    Cheers, AEG party to look forward to after a hard, excellent winter of steelheading!

    Yeah, because running down one river into the north Pacific saltwater and up into another river system is such an easy row in a drift boat...

    And they'd support themselves selling DVDs, right? Of course they need sponsors to do this stuff and I wish them many. The gear, time, transportation, food, video production, and promotion costs for AEG I bet would astound many....

    Seems to me that they would need somebody who specializes (using that term loosely) in PRE-hospital emergency care.
    have good fishing,

    You mean someone to open a beer for the injured but also able to drink if for them if they are in too bad of shape?
