Catch of the Past

Greetings, Catch Magazine followers! As the New Year approaches, I’m reflecting on Catch Magazine’s 10 years of fly fishing videos. It’s overwhelming! Catch Magazine's online publication https://www.CatchMagazine.net is packed with more than 70 T-Motion films that bring you around the world with me. Often the films from Catch make it here to my YouTube Channel for all of you to experience my fly fishing adventures and meet world-class anglers. As a little gift to you this holiday season, I’ve packaged a sweet trio filmed and edited almost 7 years ago. These 3 short videos that have been pulled from the vault feature 3 different anglers, on 3 different rivers fishing for 3 kinds of fish. First, watch adventurous angler Brian O’Keefe as he wades a high desert river in Oregon to catch brown trout. Then see Carrie Collingwood, of Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge http://www.Spatsizi.com in British Columbia, as she travels via boat to a high mountain lake tributary to land bull trout on the fly. Finally, take in the coastal fly fishing phenomenon Jakob Lund as he swings for steelhead a stone's throw from the Pacific Ocean. These last two videos are extra special, and almost vintage in their method. They were filmed in 2012, before lightweight commercial drones were available or in wide public use. I filmed Jakob and Carrie using two different home-designed copters (weighing more than 6 pounds each, with 4 and 6 blades lifting a combination of large Panasonic handy-cams and GoPros mounted to a homemade servo-driven carbon fiber gimbal) to capture some of the first “drone” footage the fishing industry had ever seen. To this day these quick seconds of footage have never been seen by anyone. Drones and cameras have massively evolved since 2012. I consider this my vintage aerial work. Happy Holidays! I hope you enjoy these 3 special films! Special thanks to R.L. Winston Fly Rods for their continued support since day one, September 1st 2008. https://WinstonRods.com Products used from 2010-2012 for these films. * Aerial Camera Information* - Panasonic TM1000 - GoPro 2 and GoPro 3 Black - Venom batteries - https://www.VenomPower.com ----- *Aerial Frames* Custom Hex Frame - Steelhead Beach Aerials QuadH2O Frame - Spatsizi Aerials ----- * Underwater Camera* - Sony RX-100 ----- *Larger Format Camera* Panasonic HMC-150 Panasonic Ag-160a *Musician Info* Brian O'Keefe segment Lincoln Grounds, Thomm Jutz and Justin Moses ----- Carrie Collingwood segment Jeff Dale, Tim Reilly and James Scholes ----- Jakob Lund segment Terry Devine-King and Adam Drake

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.

Spatsizi

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!
