Episode 09 - "Barracuda" - Ascension Bay, Part 2 - Fishing the Saltwater Flats of Ascension Bay, Mexico

This the second of two episodes shot in Ascension Bay.  "Barracuda"  carries on the saltwater flats fishing adventure started in Part 1 ("Bonefish").  As the name implies, this episode features mostly barracuda fishing (and some permit fishing thrown in for good measure).  We also had the good fortune attending a festival in town! 

Folks if you are looking for your first permit or to add to the ledger, these guides are second to none in their understanding of these incredible sport fish.  On the last two days we probably cast to over 300 permit... we thought we would be stoked to see a few fish let alone THAT MANY!  On the last day Trevor finally managed to convince a nice permit to bite...all part of the story...see the full episode below!

Come along on this new adventure as we explore the amazing world of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere which is teaming with birds, animals and fish!  We had an absolutely fantastic time and vow to return as soon as possible.

Episode 07 - "Summer (Steelhead) Fun " - Summer Run Steelheading on Vancouver Island, BC

We hooked 10 fish in three days...not lights out, but certainly pretty good! We captured some great up close and personal shots of hook sets, running summer run steelhead and some of the enthusiasm that we all share for these very special fish!  This was our inaugrgal episode under the new SPOOLED TV.  We are also excited to have Jenna MacCrae on board with us for her first episode and assist her in catching her very first steelhead on the fly!!   We teamed up with Patches D. again.  For those of you who haven't met Patches, check out Episode 06 for cutthroating madness!

I know we say this a lot, but we feel we might have the best episode yet on the way! SPOOLED here we come!

Episode 06 - "Trophy Hunting" - Fishing for Monster Cutthroat Trout in Powell River, BC

March 03- What an experience...wow... with the lure of fishing for cutthroat trout up to 10lbs, we quickly agreed to visit Powell River and fish with the boys from Powell River Outback Adventures.   The owner of Powell River Outback Adventures, Paul Marier was unable to fish with us; however, he left us in the very capable hands of seasoned guide and angler, "Patches".   Fishing with Patches was definitely a pleasure!  This guy is one fishy dude!  Patches also has a wealth of knowledge regarding Coastal Cutthroat Trout and we were able to increase our understanding of this truly exceptional and diverse species.  Did we catch any trophies?  Well, that will depend largely on your definition of a "trophy"... rest assured we caught some beauties!   This unique fishery did not disappoint and we were able to capture some exciting footage all up close and in high definition!  Wait until you watch the 4lb cutthroat agressively take a fast-stripped fly...all in HD...

Episode 05 - "River of No Return" - Steelhead Fishing on the Salmon River, Idaho

After much deliberation we decided to take BCextremeHD "on the road".  I guess the decision was rather easy, as how could we say no to spey fishing on the gorgeous Salmon River ("river of no return") in southeastern Idaho with Lee Davison (CND Custom Designs and Snake River Outfitters)?!   If you like fly fishing for steelhead, or even just steelheading in general, you will quickly fall in love with the Salmon River!   Long, sweeping runs with medium depth...lazy tailouts...easy wading...spectacular desert hills and rolling plains...and over 60,000 steelhead in the system.  Now you understand why we went south!  Watch the full HDTV fishing show below!

Special thanks to:

Lee and Nancy Davison for their fine hospitality and excellent company.   We are already planning to return next year!

Michiel van Erp - for coming through in a pinch and providing the music for Episode 05. Some great beats in this episode for sure!

Local guides and spey fishers Ed Link and Zak Greenwood of North Fork Guides.  These fine gentlemen took time off to show us around their beautiful river and even managed to put us in front of a few fish despite tough angling conditions!    Their time and efforts were very much appreciated! 

CND and Islander Reels for supplying BCXHD Productions with the right equipment that got the job done!


Darren hard at work...how many of you would swap your spey rod for an HD camera?

 




Episode 04 - "High and Dry"  - Interior BC Rainbow Trout Fishing

We finished recording this episode in late August!  We had a fantastic trip to interior BC.  Ran into a few friends on the river and in the pub...good times.  Nothing like a cold beer after 10 hours casting in 36C heat!  The rainbow trout were elusive at times; however, we prevailed and had a fantastic trip! 

We captured over 15 dry fly takes and have some incredible footage to share!  Imagine slow motion dry fly takes... zoomed in shots focussed on drifting dry flies that get hammered by big aggressive rainbow trout.   Long, reel punishing runs far into the backing.  Look the fish in the eye as it slashes (and often misses) our dry fly patterns!  If any of this makes sense to you...watch Episode 04.  Watch the full HDTV fishing show below!

Episode 03 - "Bull Fighting" - Fly Fishing  for Sea-run Bull Trout

Episode 03...we all feel that this one has the most eye candy yet!  The fly fishing was...a little frustrating at times...so was the weather; however, our spirits prevailed and we were able to capture fantastic HD footage from another great BC fly-fishing destination!  The jet boating adventure in the narrow canyon has to be the highlight of this episode!  Bull trout are an awesome sportfish and we caught a couple of beauties! Come explore this fantastic river with us as we run from one beautiful run to the next! This episode also has a short instructional on the downstream swing technique.  Watch the full HDTV fishing show below!

Episode 02 - "Angling with Adversity" - BC Interior Lake Chironomid Fishing

We hope you like to watch strike indicators go down while fly fishing BC interior lakes... maybe a few wildlife shots.  Join Darren, Trevor and friends on a true BC lake fishing adventure...maybe a couple of double headers will do... We had a blast filming this one!  

Episode 02 features music by Stephen Coghill, Michiel van Erp and Gord Brown.  These guys have served up some seriously funky stuff - all original music!  No copyright violations here...  Maybe even a little "smoother" than the last episode, almost deep house this time. Watch the full HDTV fishing show below!

Note: Seriously check out Stephen's website...the entrance page is sick!  Stephen also has a myspace page where he hosts a few of his songs...

Episode 01 - "Steelhead Fever" - Steelhead Fishing on Vancouver Island, BC

Well Episode 01 "Steelhead Fever" is complete!  What a battle!  I guess it is like learning anything new...takes time.  We certainly had our share of hurdles to overcome in creating this HDTV show...and overcome we did!  West coast rain defines the first day of fishing...ended up killing our first camera on our first trip! 

Darren's steelhead is the highlight of this BC steelheading episode.  What an absolute gem!  We were truely blessed to have outstanding steelheading such as this for our first episode.  Even non-fishers will get excited by this one!  Watch the full HDTV fishing show below!
