There are many people who have tried to capture the feel of swinging flies for winter steelhead. In this short film Ryan Peterson, Rich Zellman, and Bo give you a glimpes into their chase of these prized an threatened fish through the State of Jefferson. You can almost feel the damp cold rain and hear the screaming drag… you feel the excitement as Rich gets “One in winter”.
“A couple seasons ago I swapped fly rod for camera and followed my friend, Rich Zellman as he cast for winter-run steelhead. Over countless days, eye traced rod’s path, over and over again. And over again. This is what came of that effort.
Respect and special thanks to Patagonia for conscientiously manufacturing and supporting stuff that makes our lives more fun.” -Ryan Peterson
