Buffet Series Season 2 | Salmonfly Buffet

Salmonflies are GIANT bugs, 3-4″ in length, and they live out the majority of their lives as nymphs on the river bottom. However, each year when conditions are just right the crawl out of the water and hatch along the banks of many Western rivers here in the US. This is a hatch that both anglers and fish anticipate all year long! These bugs are big enough to turn the head of every fish in the river. We experienced some of the best dry fly fishing imaginable, and we are excited to share it with you.

Buffet Series Season 2 | Backcountry Buffet

A lighthearted story of a father and son exploring the backcountry in pursuit of cutthroat trout and pure adventure! This is a trip that my son Andrew and I have been dreaming about for years. Backpacking and fly fishing in an amazing location with cutthroat trout willing to slam big dry flies! It was also a time for me, as a parent, to reflect on the importance of carving out time to spend with the ones I Iove before the opportunity is gone. We hope you enjoy!

Series Overview: Three years ago we launch the original Buffet Series which consisted of 8 fly fishing adventures from around the globe. We had so much fun creating and sharing those stories that we decided to create a second round of fly fishing adventure films. In season 2 we stay a bit closer to home and focus on the amazing trout fisheries the West has to offer. We invite you to join us on these adventures as we share some of our favorite experiences with you. Whether your preference is chasing trout in a cold mountain stream, bonefish on a secluded flat, or large mouth bass in your favorite warm water pond, this series has something for you!

Buffet Series Season 2 | Winter Buffet

We all love fly fishing in the Summer, but for those who don’t mind the cold find that Winter has some AMAZING opportunities for the fly fisher. Small midges and light tippet are the key to unlocking the river’s secrets! We hope you enjoy!

Buffet Series Season 2 | Green Drake Buffet

Green Drake Buffet highlights what could be the hatch that trout look forward to the very most, the Green Drakes. In this episode we show every life stage of the Drakes, and spend our time targeting them once the hatch picks up and the dry fly action intensifies. Exceptionally large mayflies entice even the biggest of fish to the surface. We hope you enjoy!

Buffet Series Season 2 | Brookie Buffet

Brookie Buffet is the first episode of the second season of the Buffet Series.  This episode features Phil Tuttle, Gilbert Rowley, and Andrew Rowley, Gilbert’s 13 year old son. Brook trout are near and dear to their hearts and weave through their life stories.  This is a tale of beginnings and how the joy of fly fishing never really fades. Enjoy the visual experience!

Focus

In honour of International Women’s Day, we are pleased to share a film produced a few years back when we teamed up with Faceless Fly Fishing Media….
An inspirational fly-fishing film about an adventerous couple pursuing their passion, which leads them on a memorable adventure under a smoke soaked skyline in search of the perfect image of oversized dry-fly sipping rainbows. For those who’ve never had a trout rise to a dry, a fish might just be a cold-blooded creature with fins and spots, but to you and I they’re the objects of our memories, of our pictures, of our attention. They’re why, as we leave the river, we’re already dreaming about the next trip.
For anyone who hasn’t gotten to know this couple through their breathtaking images, this is a great way to catch up. Enjoy!
