Fly Fusion has unveiled the trailer for Fly Fusion TV, and there is some terrific footage of fly fishing British Columbia’s Kootenay Region for Westslope cutthroat trout and bull trout.
From Fly Fusion:
“Fly Fusion Magazine takes its visually inviting and highly captivating print media and successfully transitions the same vision to film. Co-host Jim McLennan (respected guide, word renown fly-fishing author, and Fly Fusion’s managing editor) and Derek Bird (Fly Fusion’s founding editor) team up with a number of the magazine’s field editors to provide engaging and informative dialogue. Fishing in British Columbia’s Kootenay region, they find themselves in the heart of the Rockies fly fishing in some of the country’s most stunning locations. The co-hosts fly fish for oversized bull trout and large Westslope cutthroat, but the fish are not all they’re after. The series also projects all that makes a fishing trip more than just catching fish. The hosts discover–through exploring, through the solitude of remote locations, through discussions about why fly fishing is a passion that spans a lifetime, through dialogue about timely issues affecting the sport–that fly fishing can never be reduced to an individual standing in water, holding a rod. Fly fishing connects the individual to others, to generations, to fish, and to environments. In each episode, McLennan and Bird chase both trout and the heart of fly fishing.”
More on this fly fishing destination:
British Columbia is the westernmost province of Canada and is treasured by outdoors enthusiasts for its natural beauty that feature both Pacific coastline and magnificent mountain ranges. British Columbia has massive rivers that access the Pacific Ocean and welcome anadromous fish that attract anglers from all over the globe. B.C. welcomes all five species of Pacific salmon, but perhaps the greatest draw for anglers are the steelhead that make their way into Western Canadian rivers. In addition to salmon and steelhead, B.C. has bull trout, dolly varden, and sea run cutthroat, among other freshwater species.
The rivers of British Columbia are large, and for this reason, float trips are an attractive option for many anglers. In addition, to cover water effectively, Spey and switch rods are go-to rods for many salmon and steelhead anglers in B.C.
British Columbia has many prized rivers, but some rivers of note include the Skeena and related tributaries such as the Sustut, Babine, Bulkley, and Zymoetz Rivers, as well as the Damdochax, Dean, Pitt, Nass, Bell Irving, Columbia, Morice, and the Fraser Rivers (to name a few).
B.C. also has wildlife that add an element to angling in Western Canada. Bald eagles, wolverines, moose, and grizzly bears bring anglers plenty to look for in the British Columbia wilderness.
