Kanektok River Fishing

The following are a few shots from the week. I didn't take very many this week, but there were a few highlights. One included having a film crew on the river shooting a couple of shows.
A crew from InterMedia Outdoors/Barrett Productions came to shoot two TV shows that will show on the Sportsman Channel in the second quarter of 2010.

Breaking the Surface showcases the angling exploits of two of the finest female anglers on the planet, each of them highly skilled in quite different fishing disciplines. Gear fishing techniques rest in the very capable hands of Kim Bain-Moore—the first woman to ever compete in the Bassmaster Classic—while long-rod expert Diana Rudolph (of Simms/Andros South video fame) handles the tools of the fly-fishing trade. Along the way, these versatile women pursue just about anything that swims in cold, warm and salt water. This week they're after the Kanektok's silvers and rainbows.

Trout Unlimited: On the Rise is the next generation of TU television. Hosted by Colorado guide and increasingly notorious fly fishing media personality Frank Smethurst, OTR is one man’s road journey in search of the most compelling coldwater fisheries in the country, along with the people who fight to protect them. Join Frank and an arsenal of fly rods on an insider’s tour of American trout country.

I had the pleasure of guiding Diana Rudolph for the cameras. We had an exceptional time chasing dolly's and trout. We fished for rainbows in one of the channels and got sever nice rainbows to perform for the camera. Diana is an absolute stick, she railed fish.

Week 11 down, week 12 on the plane... THE LAST WEEK

As the final days pass I am left with a plethora of memories and a handful of photos. The weather here has changed... the mornings are now cold with thick fog blanketing the Kanektok. The first of the frost has plagued my fingers and face. Upon my return, coupled with better bandwidth I will be posting a few photos on the website.

I will post a few more photos from week 11 and wrap it up with week 12. I head out Sept 5 and look forward to hitting the rivers back home.

As for guided trips it is time to think about booking your fall guided trips. I will be on the on the oars starting Monday, September 28, 2009. This is the kick off of prime time for awesome trout and steelhead fishing. Book now to secure your prime fishing dates.
