Steelheading Video

Today I had a young friend ask me if I knew of any good videos on catching steelhead with a fly rod. I told him that I did not but that I had access to a large group of some of the finest steelhead fly fishers in the world and that I would ask them.
Any Suggestion? Thank you. Take care, MJC

Lani Waller/Scientific Angler series

Forgot the titles, but they sure helped when I was getting started.

yup

I'll second the Lani Waller series of videos by SA. They are great and really helped me as well.

There were three of them produced by Scientific Anglers, starring Lani Waller: Fly Fishing for Steelhead; Advanced Fly Fishing for Steelhead; Fly Fishing for Trophy Steelhead. The first two are required viewing as the Trey Combs book, Steelhead Fly Fishing is required reading.

The first two are top notch. The third is a bit shaky in my opinion but the Babine sure is pretty.

Yes, the unedited take of his waking fly shot from overhead makes the second video worth the price of admission.

Leland, sinktip

While the first two may be high school and college, I think of the third as Graduate school.

The most important part of the third is that he isn't teaching as much as in the first two, but he is dissecting the situation and fishing it as he would if the camera wasn't there. It's a summer situation but he isn't just relying on floating line long leader unweighted fly. He is a master fisherman fishing what he feels is the most productive method for the given situation.

I think it's great...

Thumbs up Above posts cover it!

No idea how many times I've rented (Fred, you could have purchased the darned things by now!) I've watched Lanni in action.

Hope he's doing 'all right,' the plane crash that he walked away from (the only one) really took the stuffing out of him.

I agree with Leland and Sinktip. The first two SA/Lani Waller videos are excellent, the third has nice video of the Babine scenery.

DVD Option

Have these come out in DVD yet? Is there anything comparable on DVD?
