COMMERCIAL AD | THOMAS & THOMAS FLY RODS

CAMILLE EGDORF + THOMAS & THOMAS FLY RODS
Rocky Mountains, Montana

We were commissioned by Thomas & Thomas Fly Rod Company to create a portrait fly fishing Ad. The idea of the image was to showcase a Western fly fishing theme. We hitched up the drift boat, called the talent, and decided on a location. This was easier said than done.

We had the boat and an amazing angler, Camille Egdorf, but mother nature threw us a curveball, wildfires. The hard part was finding a location. The smoke was so thick you couldn’t see the mountains and the river in the same frame. Everywhere had a hazy look and feel. We had to re-schedule, schedule, re-schedule again, then re-schedule and repeat. Our deliverable deadline was fast approaching. Weather stations were constantly being checked. We really needed what some might call a fly casters adversary, wind. We needed some wind to blow the smoke out of the valleys. To make matters even more difficult, we needed wind from a very specific direction. The entire West was on fire, we needed the jet stream to shift the wind direction from blowing smoke into the state to blowing the smoke out. We needed a miracle.

In the 11th hour, we found one lone random location with what we call a “sucker hole”— a tiny spot where it’s clear amongst the clouds, or in this case, the smoky haze. With the right lens and distance from the subject, we shifted our composition to fit within the only clear spot in the entire valley. We were able to create a great image, meet the deadline, and get to print. Miracles do happen!

Pink Salmon tail, Alaska

It’s always a special day to open the mailbox and see your image on the cover of a manufacturing catalog. This image is from a great trip to Alaska with a good fishing buddy, Tom Melvin. The moment I saw the light and the tail I knew I had something to work with. Pink Salmon are such amazing fish, I can’t wait to get back to photograph them again.

VIDEO EDIT | BELIZE, GRAND SLAM X 2

TWO GRAND SLAMS IN TWO DAYS
Bonefish + Permit + Tarpon x 2

BGP member Will Phelps put together a quick personal edit while on a content gathering assignment in Belize.

It’s not unheard of, but two grand slams in two days is a rarity! “We never expected it to be this good. On the last two days of our trip to Belize, it all came together. The calm and sunny conditions were perfect for flats fishing. Thanks to our incredible guides, Lincoln Westby and Marvin Leslie, two grand slams were boated. Luck was on our side, and angler Damien Nurre got it done”.

Check out the edit.

Las Pampas Lodge 2018 Video and Brochure

PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA
New Media for Las Pampas Lodge

Our team headed to Las Pampas Lodge this past spring for our annual Argentina trip. Las Pampas Lodge is located in a charming old traditional town surrounded by towering peaks and small, remote waters with great hatches and willing fish. Tucked away in the heart of the Patagonia, this small town certainly has a big fishing problem.

Many thanks to the lodge team for their time and energy. We truly enjoyed filming this winter with the LPL crew and look forward to our annual return in 2018.
