Words really can not describe the great striped bass migration on the east coast, one really needs to witness it first hand to understand the mysterious beauty and power of nature doing what it has done for as long as there was man, fish and bait… my friend Jamie Howard is a master of capturing wonderful moments in film.
I met Jamie back when he was filming Bass: The Movie, with my other good buddy, John Sherman. We had dinner one night in Santa Monica while they were filming and had a few laughs.
Jamie’s fly fishing video portfolio is crazy good including many classic videos such as Chasing Silver, In Search of a Rising Tide, Location X and Chasing Silver: Andy’s Return. Jamie has a way of being there when it counts, he surrounds himself with the best in the business for sure. He has that knack of allowing the viewer to discover those magical moments as if they are experiencing them for the first time. Running The Coast is long, its about three and a half hours, fortunately broken into three sections, Spring, Summer and Fall. I sat through the entire film in one sitting, I couldn’t stop watching it. It has many of my dear flyfishing friends in it which makes me a little bias but none the less the cinematography is awesome and all the characters Jamie has chosen to support the story of the stripah migration are perfect industry ambassadors. I would highly suggest you guys purchase and stream this video for yourself or fanatical fishing friends for the holidays…it’s a great ride! – Al Q
