Description

The history of anglers who dedicated themselves to steelhead fishing on California’s north coast. At the turn of the 20th Century, a handful of pioneers carried their fly rods into California’s remote north coast & gave birth to a culture that would revolutionize their sport. For a select few, steelhead fly fishing became an obsessive pursuit without compromise.

Leading the pack was the mythical, Bill Schaadt, an off-kilter angler famous for his ruthless pursuit to be ‘in the fish’. The new endeavor was ruled by a demanding, unspoken code, which made ‘breaking in’ almost as difficult as ‘breaking out’.

Narrated by Tom Skerritt.
