RA Beattie, friend of the blog, and filmmaker extraordinaire has won something again...

Fly Fishing Mystery Theater from RA Beattie on Vimeo.

Here's what RA had to say about the piece: "Simms Fishing Products hosted the 1st Annual Ice Out Shoot Out video competition, where 4 groups of shooters were invited to Bozeman MT and given two and a half days to shoot, edit and deliver short film (6 min max). The rules - you could not leave MT, everything had to be shot within the two and a half day window, and it had to include the special prop... a shot glass with the classic Simms logo. We had a fun packed few days - and were able to produce this little piece with the help of the talented Charlie Conn."

The piece also features my boss, and my boss' dog.  How neat.  Come fishing with us this summer and we'll show you all the tricks that Hopper, the black lab in the piece, can do.

  2. RA Beattie's definitely a tallented filmaker and fly fisher. Thanks for sharing Brett.
