DeltaTroutForce - the Perfect Combination of Art and Sport

Movies


 

Coming in hot from the equator. The DTF crew visits the South Pacific in search of zombies, boners, and gangsters. Some might say it was worth the trek. Enjoy in full screen. (2016)

 

Diversity has always been the spice of life. Knowing this, its only accurate to say things are getting all sorts of zesty on the DTF front. Our most recent video covers Christmas Island, Baja, Colorado, and Wyoming with species ranging from Rooster Fish to Coral Trout. Please watch in HD with the volume on. Feel the rhythm, feel the ride, get on up, it’s Fishing Time!!!! (2015)

 

Nothing great is done without enthusiasm or Seagram’s 7.  Throw in some wet fish and you have DTF’s newest film, “A Hustler’s Anthem”.  Stop what you are doing and get unwound! (2015)

 

My antidote to 95% of the fishing videos out there.  You won’t have to wait 5 minutes to see a fish because the movie is only 4 minutes long! In our latest feature, we battled wild trout, numbing weather, and even a ninja in waders.  For better quality watch in full screen HD. (2014)

 

Express Yourself is about understanding the frustrations and rewards that go along with fly fishing.  Recently described by the NY Times as “Similar to pulling back the shades on Christmas morning and seeing snow”, get excited for an excessive amount of Trout Porn.  Filmed on location in Colorado and Wyoming, please do yourself a favor and watch it in HD. (2013)

 

This is a movie documenting our perspective.  We brought a GoPro with us on many of our fishing missions for one year and edited together the highlights.  It was filmed entirely in HD and in Colorado.  Enjoy, “Where it’s Always Spawning Season.” (2012)

 

The video above is called “Bushwhacked.”  My personal favorite and the inspiration behind DTF. It was filmed in the backcountry of NZ’s South Island. (2010 before we could afford HD)

 

This was our first video filmed back in our sophomore year of College. It is entitled “Eleven to 4.”  It was filmed in Colorado between the months of November and April. (2009)

A Year Review

Posted by on Dec 31, 2015 in Fish Porn, Flicks, Homepage Slider, Saltwater, steelhead, Trout | 7 comments

A Year Review

It is a tale as old as fly fishing itself.  Why dedicate time on the water when we simply release the fish after catching them? Considering how often I do this, I am surprised I cannot come up with a good answer.  It goes without saying that people are drawn to fly fishing for many different reasons.  I have met individuals who fish as a way to spend time with a loved one.  Others who fish as an excuse to get outside or chase a specific size or species goal.  Some people fish because it relaxes them while others fish to experience a rush that can only be felt on the water.  A way to satisfy a competitive need, even if it is only a competition against yourself.  For me, fly fishing transcends all those things.  Fly fishing is not something I do, but who I am and I hope that helps validate my coming rant. There were times this past year when I felt a terrible shift in culture had occurred.  Those thoughts were usually followed by a disappointing realization that complaining about it isn’t going to help. Science has however proven that the squeaky wheel will occasionally get a little grease so I am going to throw some words at you here and see if they stick.. Do I think social media is the worst thing to happen to fly fishing?  Is everything posted on social media bad?  Is it weird that companies are trying to use sex to sell in this industry?  Are wayyy too many people fishing for followers/“sponsorships”?  Is it possible to fish for a “wrong” reason? Yes, No, Yes, Yes, Maybe? Those are my main concerns heading into 2016, but I remain cautiously optimistic.  I am not sure why but it probably has something to do with the realization that I will continue to fish regardless so there is no point in being a Debby about it.  Just holding out hope that certain people stop hot spotting all locations.  Not every river needs to be named in a post.  If someone recognizes the location from the background than they have already been to the spot so no biggie.  But specially naming the river or access point causes people to ask questions.  Research, time spent on the water and developing relationships in the industry should influence a river’s notoriety, not logging into Facebook to learn about a spot that was considered a secret just a few years ago.  Let’s hope we can leave some of that behind in 2015. Anyways, this wouldn’t be a year review if I didn’t post some of the highlights from it.  2015 saw 2 new DTF videos, A Hustler’s Anthem and Son of a F*sh, a new Yacht, and a few especially memorable fish. I’ll send you into 2016 with those highlights.  And just so I am practicing what I preach, note how photos can be posted without giving away the exact location.

Slater’s Tugboat

Dry fly season is almost here and lucky for you, Jack Reis has put together a tying video of one of his go to summer bugs.  Need a Hopper to hang in front of your dropper?  A Bee to go with your bird fly?  What about an indicator with a hook in it that floats like a cruise ship?  Then you need to look no further than Slater’s Tugboat.  Appropriately named by James Tarras, this pattern needs a reserved seat in your dry fly box.  To watch it in full screen, we suggest viewing on vimeo.

Movie: It’s Always Spawning Season (2012)

Well ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over.  After talking about it for the past 12 months, DTF’s new movie is finally done and ready for the world to see!First off I’d like to give you a little background information about the project.  For the past year we brought a video camera with us on many of our fishing missions and put together a little short highlighting our season.  This is not your Feature Film type of movie or anything.  Instead it is a collection of some of the footage filmed over the year and edited to a unique soundtrack.  There was no film crew, funding, or even a story line.  Simply, bringing a video camera and tripod with us to some of the finest water’s Colorado has to offer.It turns out you can gather a lot of footage in a year fishing as much as we do so the movie started to get a little on the long side but here are some reasons to watch the entire thing. -The last song is the most entertaining in my opinion. -Somewhere in the last 2 minutes Simply Terrific’s own Ryan Whitney makes a guest appearance. -It’s less time you’ll spend on facebook.Anyways, sit back, click full screen, and enjoy an excessive amount of fish porn.  I give you, Where it’s Always Spawning Season…Leave a comment and let us know what you think! Note: The movie does take a minute to load–Patience is a...
