Carpology part 1
Summer temps hovering in the upper 90’s. Rising carp. The Missouri River. Dry fly fishing. Montana’s magnificent Big Sky. Put these together, and T-Motion Theater had an unlikely, yet absolutely remarkable fly fishing video opportunity. Carp, unlike trout or steelhead or bonefish or any for that matter, feed in a frenzy known to some anglers as the “Hour of Power”. This is when schools of carp rise to the surface in fierce unison, their big mouths breaking the surface and “hoovering” up bugs in a linear path on the top of the frothy, shallow water. Montana native, fly fishing guide extraordinaire and longtime Gallatin Gateway friend of mine, Brian Kimmel of Shadow of a Trout Outfitters, told me that the next T-Motion film MUST be on Montana carp. I had no idea what I was in for. I packed up my gear into a boat driven by Adipose Boatworks founder and co-owner, Tracy Allen. Tracy quickly jetted Brian into the action of carp on the Missouri River near Helena, Montana. This film immediately became “Carpology,” as Brian revealed his extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for these giant, heat loving, bottom dwelling, big-bellied fish. With topwater action, hard fights, explosive runs, breathtaking scenery and excellent angling, Carpology-PART ONE will leave you waiting anxiously for PART TWO! Thanks to Kimmel and Allen. Enjoy!

Pure New Zealand
Issue #40 brings Catch viewers back to one of my most favorite places on earth, New Zealand. This time I flew to the South Island’s Cedar Lodge to film its owner Chris Daughters on his favorite South Island rivers. The lodge is located on the Makarora River, just about an hour’s drive north of the adventurist town of Wanaka. New Zealand is particularly special to me, as I first traveled to the country nearly 15 years ago in search of the hidden streams and huge trout known to live there. Then, my wife and I brought only a small camera, backpacks, a tent and fly rods. This time, I returned alone with my camera gear, multi-rotor aerial equipment, an outlandish number of batteries and one rod (packed with a glimmer of hope that I’d have a minute to fish instead of film.) My purpose was to capture a day in the life of Cedar Lodge’s owner Chris Daughters, a U.S. citizen who resides in New Zealand part-time with his wife and two young children. Thanks to the phenomenal helicopter pilot, Dion Matheson, we flew over rocky peaks and into broad river valleys. We landed in remote and trout-packed pools, within reach of giant feeding rainbows and browns. Thanks to Chris, his wife Shauna, pilot Dion and the folks at Cedar Lodge for getting me and my camera to the hot spots. New Zealand has been, and remains to be, my favorite fly fishing destination on Earth. It’s also my favorite place to film, of course! Sit back, relax…take notes if you must….and enjoy the special double-feature length film “Pure New Zealand.” More info about Cedar Lodge here - http://www.cedarlodge.net Special thanks to these companies in our small industry who help make this type of work a reality.

Fly Fishing England - Buckingham Trout
When I was invited by Tim Rajeff, of Rajeff Sports, to film on England’s River Esk and the historic chalk stream, River Avon, I could not resist. This is the birthplace of dry fly fishing, an area of rich traditions and history, from the sword to the modern fly rod. On this trip, I met up with Tim's colleagues from Airflo, spey casters Richard Wothers and Gareth Jones. Fishing in the shadow of castles and in brilliant green pastures, these anglers stalk and catch grayling, rainbow and brown trout, all feasting on mayflies. This film highlights the history and sacred rules of England’s famous dry fly fishing heritage. Thanks to Airflo, Patagonia and Rajeff Sports for making this film happen. It was, for me, a religious experience and one I'll never forget. -------- Pulled from the Catch Magazine Vault - Shot and edited December 2012 for Catch Magazine. Camera and Edit by Todd Moen.

Reflect - Women in Fly Fishing
This T-Motion video is from Catch Magazine's 36th Issue, August/ September 2014, and it was filmed on a little-known mountain stream, hidden deep within Montana's backcountry. It documents a fisherwoman's solo adventure and the freedom of that particular day on the river. Reflect is the classic experience that most anglers have when they get out on the water alone, with fly rod and fish and nature in its solitude. A magic window of time and space opens up for pure reflection. Enjoy! Special thanks to the companies that have supported my work for so many years.

At roughly 2 million acres, the Spatsizi Wilderness in northern British Columbia, is the home waters for the Collingwood Family of Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge. This film documents Ray Collingwood's vision, beginning in the late 60's, to operate a world-class rainbow trout fly-fishing lodge with his family. With stunning aerial footage of the Eaglenest Range and Firesteel River Valley, including birds-eye views from Ray Collingwood's multiple float planes, Todd Moen highlights the essence of family in this fly-fishing heaven. This rare and epic day with father-daughter duo, Ray Collingwood and Carrie Collingwood, in a world-class rainbow trout fishery will capture the heart of every angler. There is no doubt about it, the Collingwood Family has it figured out right. Thanks for all the support from all my YouTube subscribers! All new viewers please subscribe to be updated with new work!

Camera and Edit by Todd Moen Produced January 2013 - www.catchmagazine.net Thanks to Jakob Lund & Jeff Hickman, author Bill McMillan, Patagonia and Old Man Winter himself for making this adventure a possibility for us all. Bill McMillan - http://wildsteelheadcoalition.org/tag/bill-mcmillan/ Jakob Lund - http://www.salmonflysyndicate.com Jeff Hickman - http://www.fishtheswing.com Season #5 DVD Including Winter Run and Bonus interviews available here. http://www.catchmagstore.com/p/10/masters-series-season-5 Fishing for winter steelhead is best described by Bill McMillan, fisherman and author of "Dry Line Steelhead" describes winter as being the most difficult of seasons for searching of steelhead on the fly. The mere challenge of nature's moody elements, the cold weather as snow and rain, and the limited daylight draws only those anglers who are seeking to experience something beyond the mere fishing itself, even beyond the hooking of the magnificent fish. Winter steelhead evoke a sort of reverence because, in short, they are extremely hard to come by. All the elements surrounding the steelhead become even more epic when placed in the severity of winter. Therefore, the preparation, the adventure from sunup to sundown and the struggle of the search for this evocative strain of steelhead in winter conditions is what I tried to capture in this T-Motion Theater "Winter Run".
