New Video: Rush to the Driftless

I traveled back to the homeland for a week of family and friends. Fly rod and tenkara in tote, my dad and I met up with the Winona Fly Factory ( fisherman and we explored some of what the Driftless area has to offer for trout fishing. The tenkara rod ended up being a great option for my dad, someone who is pretty new to fly fishing. He took to it well. It was a long time on the water, but we had a great weekend fishing, finding morel mushrooms, and hanging out at the barn.

  1. So cool…You don't realize how much you miss a place until you've been away from it for a while. I'm missing the driftless and hope to get back this summer.

    Great video, and thanks for the reminder of what a special place that is.


  2. loud and proud, those toms 🙂 the other guys at the barn, my brother included, were turkey hunting that weekend, but the birds were shy and allusive.

    Great video, professional done—I like the fact you are using Vimeo, instead of UTube. With Utube I have trouble getting the video to full screen. With Vimeo you have that option and it gives all videos a more professtional look, not to mention full screen on the computer. Those were some nice browns. Thank for sharing


  4. Very sweet. I have to thank you and Trout Magee for putting the Driftless firmly on my to-do list. Love the morel parting shot, I'm going to go find some for dinner tomorrow night.


  5. glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the compliments. I think the biggest thing I notice about a quality looking video is steady camerawork. With small cameras like phones and gopros, it is hard to do, but I'm working at it. Thanks again for your kind words 🙂


  6. It is awe awesome spot and the main stream we fished just blew me away. I couldn't believe how much quality water there was and I didn't even get to it all 🙂 Magee does some awesome photography and really does the driftless justice. Good luck finding the shrooms. That guy was a random lonley mushroom about 30 feet form a dead elm. We found a few more though. They are amazing.


  7. Nicely done. I love those underwater shots of the fish booking it back to safety 🙂 Great looking water as well. Looking forward to more. Thanks for sharing. Tight LInes.
