“Fall Run” is the ultimate Pacific Northwest steelhead adventure. This is the true story every angler dreams about retelling around the campfire forever. Hooking and landing a steelhead on a fly is not easy. It is arguably the most difficult type of fly fishing in the world. Add the challenges of Mother Nature’s moods, an unpredictable wild creature and one single, split-moment chance to capture it all on film……..and you’ve got a recipe for a movie house flop. But against all possible odds, luck lands on the right side for the filming of this high-action angling adventure. Six years after filming Catch Magazine’s premier issue T-Motion production, anglers Jeff Hickman and Jakob Lund meet up for another steelhead quest on camera with Todd Moen. Moen captures a film of fellowship and fish on unknown Pacific Northwest water in a truly spectacular story. Yet the story of “Fall Run” depends on the most impressive of adventures ever known. It belongs to the brave steelhead himself. He makes his way, half-way across the world with predators on his tail, safely to swim up this tiny inland river where he meets, in a brief encounter, two ecstatic anglers and a very patient camera lens. One spectacular adventure always leads to another…and this is it.
