In 2014 members of the Beattie Outdoor Productions crew set out to create what was then considered by most to be a crazy concept: a documentary fly fishing film about the carp. Yes, that’s right. Carp. Over the course of a year, team members Austin Trayser, RA Beattie and Steven Yochum traveled the USA filming passionate carp anglers around the states. From California to Illinois, and numerous locations inbetween, we documented some truly amazing locations.
One of our all time favorite fly fishing magazines is The Drake. Owner & editor Tom Bie recently published a great little vignette on the Green Drake – a prolific insect which hatches in stunning numbers on various trout streams – and drives anglers and trout wild. RA Beattie was honored to write a short blurb about this legendary insect.
