Heart Of The Driftless
DVD
Third Year Fly Fisher Films/ Robert Thompson

Local Chicagoan did what we all wish we could have done!

He conveys the beauty and magic of the trout streams in the "Driftless" area of SW Wisconsin - and did it incredibly well!!

The Driftless region is a true undiscovered gem. Nonexistent only a few decades ago, environmental & agricultural practices changed through the careful guidance of state and local government, local organizations like TU and dedicated farmers
transforming the areas famed coulee limestone creeks into some of the most unique and storied wild trout habitat.

The Heart of the Driftless will introduce you to creeks-
many of them smaller than the length of your rod- choke-full of wild browns and brook trout providing
some of the best fly fishing in the world!

The DVD includes three full features (HOTD, Reverb & Thunder River) and extras.
Running time 156 minutes including the extras. The DVD also features a
Dolby 5.1 surround sound mix.

Really several DVDs in one- the "Heart of the Driftless" tells the history of the area, how it was managed back to health and shows the incredible beauty of the area and the incredible fishery it is! It was really cool to see our friends Bob Blumreich (long time guide in SW Wisc) and Matt Wagner (owner of Driftless Angler in Viroqua) profiled in this DVD as well.

There is also "Reverb" a Punk Rock Band meets SW Wisconsin Spring creeks for sanity checks piece which profiles the Chicago based punk band "PegBoy" and how they find peace and sanity through fishing these creeks - cool stuff! This is not a regular fly fishing DVD- more a human interest story and how an unlikely group of punk rockers coalesce around- of all things - fly fishing. We have seen the guys around the shop a bunch of times - but never knew about this side of them.

The DVD includes three full features (HOTD, Reverb & Thunder River) and extras.
Running time 156 minutes including the extras. The DVD also features a

    It was all I could do to wait until I finished my first viewing of "Heart of the Driftless." I wanted to immediately grab my vest and 6'6" 3 wt and hop in the car to head North. My wife reminded me it was 10 PM, so I decided to wait and watched the DVD again, and again. This is a must for any fly fisherman. The shots of actual fishing and catching are outstanding, and the aerial shots are without equal. The "extras" included are worth the price of admission. I first thought it was a bit wordy in spots, but it pays due tribute to the work that was done to establish the Driftless area as a superb fishery, lessons for all who love the outdoors. Those who have fished the area will recognize favorite streams and runs, even though, thankfully, unnamed. It makes this a very personal experience. Thanks for making this available.
