Also 1 man, 1 Boat, 1 Camera…. dirty!
You may recognize Nic Villano, from this jaw dropping Slab of the month photo on the chum. In this video – Nic rocks a solo mission, for a fall Steelhead smack down, on the swing. Strong work Nic! Makes me wish it was October again.

After a week of snow storms, ice rain, power outage and crazy windstorms… It’s official, we’re ready for summer, but in Seattle, that does not happen until July. So here’s too sun and to the cancer causing awesomeness it creates.
MOTIV Fishing cuts their own path through some of the most rugged jungles of Belize in hopes of finding out-of-the-way locations—with fish, and escaping with captured memories. To make it home they have to keep moving, or the jungle will surround and overtake them, making you just another roadside casualty in the vehicular ancient Mayan burial ground. Belize is a contrast of extremes (beauty and pain), and the road you end up traveling may not be by choice, but as with anywhere that human interaction hasn’t overtaken, once you get there, paradise and unspoiled fishing are right at your feet.
What started off as a grassroots effort by private citizens around the country, has recently gained support from large online corporations, to help fight this new censorship policy congress is trying to pass.
Thanks to action by a broad and bipartisan coalition of Internet users, companies, and organizations, the U.S. House of Representatives has now put the brakes on SOPA, a well-intentioned but deeply flawed bill that would use Internet censorship to combat overseas copyright infringement. Even President Obama’s White House has joined the opposition.
But nevertheless, the Senate is continuing to move forward — and fast — with its equally dangerous version of the bill, called PIPA, the Protect-IP Act. As written, PIPA would import censorship and surveillance techniques pioneered by countries like China and Iran, reversing longstanding U.S. policy on Internet freedom, betraying U.S. First Amendment values, damaging our standing around the world, threatening our job-creating innovators, and undermining Internet security for everyone.
Today is a day for action across the Internet. Learn about these destructive bills. Tell your Senator what you think. Congress needs to hear from you.

Finally starting to see some signs of winter around the Seattle area. Since we got a good dose of the white stuff, this weeks Slumpbuster is dedicated to the Snow Bunnies.
Once a year there is a camp where anglers come together from all over the West to reconnect…this piece is as much a tribute to the human element of fishing as it is to the fish that draws all of us together..
Anglers featured-Rick Matney, Tyler “peaches” Treece, Matt Klara and Laura Jenkins.

After a little Hiatus from the internets, due to work shit, and moving into the new ShootingHead-WorldDominationLab… I was glad to see this waiting in my inbox. Having fished and drank with most of the characters in this video, it bummed me out that I missed the last fall Steelhead camp, but got me stoked for this years WINTER camp.
