Carplandia [video]

Carplandia is a short story about carp and smallmouth bass fly fishing on the dry side of Washington state. Stalking the flats and fishing from sunken roads cutting through the middle of bays is a unique experience. Check out Carplandia from Waist Deep Media.

10,000th Cast – Full film [video]

Steelhead fishing in the PNW is a lifetime pursuit. Swinging flies for steelhead is another endeavour entirely. Conditions rarely line up to film this type of unlikely connection from the air. After all, drones are noisy and who wants to take the blame for spooking the run with that jazz?

But if you are prepared and patient sometimes the cosmos throws you a bone and a magic moment is immortalized in a way once only pictured in our dreams. 

Friendships forged on the river seem to stand the tests of time. This story is no different. Three people, three friendships born out of the same waters and one fish that gave her all. 

A surprise season that rewarded the patient and an example of compromise between anglers and organizations in a movement towards a sustainable future, 

Thank you anglers, let’s continue to work together for the future of our fisheries united.


Please enjoy 10,000th Cast from Waist Deep Media.
