Big Brown Trout & Lots of 'Em

Although brown trout can't match steelies for speed, when they get as big as some of these Argies they're pretty awesome.

Ultimate Steelheading AVAILABLE NOW

Fly fishing for BC steelhead is as good as it gets, especially when they're swirling at skated dries or when you're sight fishing for them.  Fly Fishing Fantasies' video, Paid in Full, follows four fishermen attempting to get a piece of this made in BC goodness.  There's over twenty rises to dries in this video and many other incredible sights as well.

Check out the official trailer below--you won't be disappointed.

Boldly Go

Boldly go, or just dumb___?  When it comes to videos, DVD's look to be on their way out.  Can Blu-ray be far behind?  Fly Fishing Fantasies has chosen to host their new release, Paid in Full, online.  What're the benefits to YOU?

Benefits of Online Video Hosting versus Disks:

  1. better picture quality than standard DVD’s
  2. cheaper than Blu-ray
  3. internet hosted so you never have to worry about damaging or losing (aka your fishing buddy lifted it) your DVD/Blu-ray or worry that you can’t play it once disks and disk players are totally phased out
  4. you can purchase from home and be watching your video the same day in some circumstances (ie we are not out filming)
  5. you can watch from any computer with an internet connection
  6. more money goes to the filmmaker and less to production costs, shipping and middle men making it more likely that the “starving artist” will live to tell another story
  7. more environmentally conscious than printing and recycling of disks and packaging
I'm sure there are other good reasons.  Please, fill me in.

Steelhead Rising in Huge Numbers


Paid in Full boasts over twenty dry fly steelhead rises and they're coming your way in a matter of hours.  If all website work goes according to plan tomorrow, our steelhead sight fishing and dry fly fishing masterpiece, as voted by me, will be available for purchase by late tomorrow.  I'm ecstatic with the final product and given the feedback we've received from several fly fishing industry insiders, many other people will be just as impressed.

The Difference

Unlike some fishing videographers, we keep the camera running by packing lots of batteries.  The result?  You get to see the rise, the take, the hook set, that initial frenetic run and all the incredible surroundings that steelhead call home.  You also get to see steelhead approaching twenty pounds that fell victim to a well presented dry fly and the xxxx-eating grin on the face of the guy that presented that fly.  In addition to carrying lots of batteries, we also use wireless lapel microphones to bring the authentic sounds of a screaming Islander Reel.

I can't wait!

Take your last look at our previous trailer below if you choose as it'll be replaced by Paid in Full's official trailer within hours.

Islander Reels Reinvests

After viewing Fly Fishing Fantasies' dry fly steelheading video Paid in Full, which is due out in a matter of days, Islander Reels gives a vote of confidence by agreeing to a substantial future sponsorship agreement.  Islander staff characterized the video as "Awesome!!!!!".

Right back at ya Islander, your reels are also awesome!!!!!  Just ask Rory whose previous reel melted down and seized on two separate steelhead the year before Islander sponsored Fly Fishing Fantasies.  Trust me, a steelhead can move out when it wants to.

Head & Tail

I usually like what the frontside fly boys have to offer--dry flies for trout in secluded spots.  And this time a great cast to a head and tail rise from a nice brown trout.
