NEW FILM “NEXGEN” PREMIERING AT FLY FISHING FILM TOUR 2019

NEXGEN + 2019 F3t FILM TOUR TEASER
Off the Grid Studios

Off the Grid Studios is pleased to announce a new film — “NexGen.” With support from the Orvis Company, Scientific Anglers, and WorldCast Anglers, the latest from Off the Grid Studios will premiere on the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour.

In “NexGen,” filmmaker RA Beattie tells the story of generational bonds and friendships formed through fly fishing. In the film, Beattie offers a new perspective, as the film is told from the point of view and with the narration of Jack Buccola — a 12-year-old angler from Bend, Oregon. The film follows Jack as he experiences living in a fly fisherman’s house, witnesses the impact of fires on his home waters, and explores new waters on a road trip with his father Ryan, friend Judd Field, and Judd’s father Pete. Throughout the journey, Jack grows to appreciate the steelhead of the Northwest, the native cutthroat trout found on the South Fork of the Snake River and other tributaries, and Jack also realizes the potential for more travel with a tying business.

“Our 2019 production ‘NexGen’ takes viewers along for a ride on a more attainable, grassroots adventure here at home in the American West,” explains Beattie. “I’m very proud of our entire team and excited to bring the young cast, epic eats, and stunning nature scenes to the big screen in theaters around the world.”

“NexGen” will be featured on the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour, which begins Jan. 19, 2019, in Bozeman, Montana. This is the 16th film from Off the Grid Studios/Beattie Outdoors Productions in the Fly Fishing Film Tour, and the filmmakers have had official selections in the Fly Fishing Film Tour since the event began 13 years ago.

“NexGen” was directed, edited, and produced by RA Beattie, produced and filmed by Bryan Gregson, written by Sarah Grigg and Tim Harden, filmed and edited by Will Phelps, and audio engineered by Troy Hermes, with still photography from Arian Stevens. Marko Milosevic contributed the graphics.

YELLOW DOG FLYFISHING + PHOTO WORKSHOPS 2017


FLY FISHING PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS 2017
FISH . PHOTO . TRAVEL
Belize, Idaho, Cuba


Join Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures for a hands-on, adventure-filled outdoor and fishing photography workshop in 2017. We have a great line-up of instructors this year, making it a great opportunity to travel with us to Belize, Idaho or Cuba! This immersive workshop will be led by our highly accomplished team of adventure angling photographers. The school includes daily classes, in-the-field instruction, field trips, and all lodging and meals!

The idea for the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures on-the-water photo workshop was to create a hands on workshop that is taught by working professionals who specialize in adventure angling. We constructed a learning experience built around real time scenarios. Let’s face it: the light is rarely perfect when you finally catch the fish of a lifetime or finally take that once in a lifetime trip. Everyone wants to come home with those special moments. With this in mind, we created a curriculum that provides you with the necessary tools to create great images! The detailed instructional lesson plan is directly applied from the classroom into the field. Each participant has the help of an instructor with almost every shot. It’s a great educational experience for all levels.

Who Should Attend:
Everyone! Whether you just purchased your first camera and are wondering what all those buttons are for or you’re a seasoned amateur to intermediate photographer wanting to make the most of your fishing and travel photography, this workshop will advance your skill level and improve your photos in the field. With three working professional photographers instructing, we’re able (and happy) to teach and accommodate photographers of any skill level. The diversity of instruction and a curriculum designed specifically for outdoor, travel and fishing photography, this workshop will help you to “up your game” and make the most of your future fishing trips.

WANDERLUST PHOTO WORKSHOP FUNDRAISER

WANDERLUST PHOTO WORKSHOP
Waldorf School in Bend & TroutHunter lodge 
Henry’s Fork, Idaho

My friend and amazing outdoor clothing designer, Kim Brannock, called me about a creative fundraiser she was doing for her daughter’s school and was in need of participants. With the help of Patagonia ambassador Mille Paini and TroutHunter lodge we put together a fun Fish and Photo workshop on the famed Henry’s Fork River, a “what it takes to get it done in the field” so to speak. Ryan and Dennis were the lucky bidding winners and they showed up from Oregon with camera and fishing rods ready to go. We had some great light but battled tough fishing conditions and as always we made the best of times. The last day the fellas were rewarded with some great fishing and big fish, a bonus! We touched on the basics of photography but more so the technical little tricks and tips to get the shot. We nailed some great imagery and iconic enough, a few images that day have been selected to see print. A big thanks Ryan and Dennis and to Rich and Mille at TroutHunter and all the guides and staff, it was a great fundraiser for a great cause.

THE SISTINE CHAPEL | EDITORIAL

THE SISTINE CHAPEL | EDITORIAL
The Complete Fly fisherman Magazine

I had the opportunity to join some friends for a day of fishing. It was a great crew and a really fun day showing new friends the local water. Watching their reactions to the surroundings, the river and the fish were inspiring. Often times what we see everyday we take for granted. I was thrilled to see how excited my own backyard was to them. And in turn, it was also exciting for me to be able to share my own backyard experience with them. Gerhard Laubscher wrote an article on his trip to the ‘Ranch & fishing and it was published in the December edition of “The Complete Fly fisherman” magazine. I was happy to be able to supply him with a few images. Take a look; it’s a great read.

I’m thrilled to see this image once again show up. This image was captured in Island Park on the banks of the Henry’s Fork River inside a really cool bus named “Lucinda” owned by Branden Born. Ambassador Mille Paini and daughter Ella were tying flies. At times Ella would be very witty and full of energy, as usual. The present and future of the Yellowstone caldera is in good hands with these two ladies.
