Cutthroat Transmitters

it always leaves a strange feeling seeing our little friends get sliced up, have an antenna pushed up their butt and find themselves with one of R2D2’s spare parts placed in their belly… but if its good for the many then i guess its a good thing.
having but the most rudimentary notions of fish biology and studies, i have no idea of the validity or effectiveness of these types of study projects but knowing about the process is quite interesting. enjoy !

Casting a Voice

from Barbless Fly Media filmed by Dimitri Gammer

i could sit here for hours and attempt to explain why you, me, we, anybody should get involved in this or any other conservation project around the world but that doesn’t work, the call has to come from within and not from some guy on the other side of the planet. here’s hoping this video might wake up that call.

“Casting a Voice” is a fly fishing conservation film, using the perspective of anglers to examine the risks facing one of British Columbia’s most precious resources – wild fish. The proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project would run through some of the most abundant wild salmon and steelhead waters left on the planet. The Skeena River and its tributaries remain a rare stronghold for healthy populations of anadromous fish, while wild fish stocks have declined elsewhere.
