Throwback to the first season of the Fly Fusion Series with Al Ritt on the vise. Filmed on location at Island Lake Lodge, nestled in the heart of the Rockies in the Kootenay region of British Columbia.
Great times on set of the very first season of the Fly Fusion Series. On this particular day Paula Shearer – the hardest working angler of all time – found herself in a battle with a stunning bull trout while filming episode five, “Solitude”. Watch the full episode, including footage of this epic monster, on flyfusionstreaming.com
Fly Fusion Magazine’s premier issue was released on June 1st, 2004 exclusively to fly shops. Our then Publisher, Chris Bird, worked through the night with Art Director, Terry Paulhus, to put the final touches on volume 1, issue 1 just in time to send it off to press. A collection of articles from Jim McLennan, Brian Chan, Kathy Ruddick, Phil Rowley and fly casting guru Chris Seipio make up one of our favourite issues of all time. With only 2,000 copies printed this one is impossible to find and there are only two copies remaining at Fly Fusion HQ. We don’t spend too much time around the office looking back, but just for fun we thought we’d take a quick look and share.
