Hello Everyone

We'll I am back at it again, holding a film premier in Spokane to benefit the Wild Steelhead Coalition April 27th

https://www.facebook.com/events/234072303723075/

Our Two Hands is a full length feature film from Bloodknots detailing the state of the union for Steelhead

Here's the kickstarter video that launched the project a few years back

From the filmmakers
Society has an intimately complex and perilous relationship with salmon and steelhead. The current management paradigm has failed, and the status quo solutions for restoring impoverished wild populations have proven elusive. "Our Two Hands" is an examination of the underlying cause of this decline, as well as the innovative voices in the angling community and general public fighting for a wild fish future in the Pacific Northwest.

Also joining us will be local outdoor conservation and fishing non profits like Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, Save Our Wild Salmon, Spokane Riverkeeper, Spokane Falls TU and more.

Being a fundraiser, we're going to have a massive raffle to keep everyone on their toes. Currently I have commitments for 4 guided trips (Clearwater, SW Montana, Oregon Coast), rods, reels, artwork, fly lines, custom nets, books, flies, apparel and a whole lot more. I'll keep this page updated as to the items that come in.

Let me know if you have any questions on the event or if you want to be involved. It's going to be a great night of community and fundraising...all wrapped around an amazing new film about the sport we love.

Hope to see you there!

What a night. The conservation community really showed up and had their wallets open.

After all was said and done, we netted over $6,000. A big thank you to all involved and who came to the showing.

Additionally, last night was the first showing of that film anywhere. Our Two Hands is bloody amazing, go see it if you can

Thank you, I am tired, humbled and extremely happy.
