The filming of this T-Motion video took Todd to British Columbia, Canada and the little ski town named Fernie. There, he met up with local fly fishing guide, Beckie Clarke. Beckie is known for her outgoing personality, great sense of humor and her absolute passion for fly fishing and living life to the fullest. This made for phenomenal filming potential! There they were greeted with wet fall weather, plus wind, snow, grizzly bears and wolves. In spite of all that, Beckie brings her favorite streams throughout the Elk Valley up close and personal for T-Motion viewers. British Columbia’s mountains and valleys are covered in brilliant fall foliage. They walk into remote rivers, capturing the incredible scenery, the crystal clear water and a half dozen big bull trout. One of Todd’s personal favorites, this video taps the best of B.C fishing into 9 minutes of pure gold.
