A film by Justin Coupe and Palmer Taylor
Tom Skerritt returns to fly fishing for the first time since “”A River Runs Through It””, to narrate this documentary on California’s history of coastal fly fishing. The DVD includes the award-winning feature film, never before seen extra footage, deleted scenes and other bonus features.
Using never before seen footage, vintage photos, archival headlines and exclusive interviews, Rivers of a Lost Coast shows a side of California most people never knew existed.
To listen to these anglers discuss what California steelheading and salmon fishing was like in the 1940’s and 1950’s is to step back into a time before dammed waterways and stunted fish migrations, before hashtags and brand ambassadors. The legend of Bill Schaadt is an amazing story in and of itself. Egos still existed and bravado was at the forefront with some of these legendary fly anglers. Rivers of a Lost Coast is a step back in a time machine you will not want to miss.
