Rivers of a Lost Coast DVD

The award-winning historical documentary about the steelhead pioneers of California’s remote north coast. At the turn of the 20th Century, a handful of pioneers carried their fly rods into California’s remote north coast and gave birth to a culture that would revolutionize their sport. For a select few, steelhead fly fishing became an obsessive pursuit without compromise. Leading the pack was the mythical, Bill Schaadt, an off-kilter angler famous for his ruthless pursuit to be ‘in the fish.’ The new endeavor was ruled by a demanding, unspoken code, which made ‘breaking in’ almost as difficult as ‘breaking out’. By the early 1980s, the Golden State’s coastal fisheries found themselves caught in a spiraling decline. As California searched for its disappearing salmon and steelhead, these men foraged for their souls. $29.95
