Movie making: Behind the scenes….The River Why

I found these older pics from 2011, when a film crew came to a fly shop (NW Fly Fishing Outfitters, Portland, Oregon) where my son, Tony, was working. I have previously posted a pic of Tony with Zach Gilford, who played Gus Oviston in the movie, The River Why. But, I found some behind the scenes images that Tony had gathered in the small fly shop. They show the size and volume of equipment and people involved for a very few scenes at the shop.

Here, in a quiet moment, Zach, Tony and the late and great John Hagan (owner of NWFFO) discussed Gilford’s life and travels.

A fair amount of movies are shot in and around Portland so I see the neighborhoods taken over with big trailers etc. TV shows like Grimm and Leverage film quite a bit in Portland.

Tying with Frodin Tubes

Matt McCrary of Action Anglers Guide Service will demonstrate how he ties his highly effective winter steelhead flies on Frodin tubes. As always our “Saturday’s in the Loft” clinics are free of charge and we’ll provide the refreshments.

January 10 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. at 10910 NE Halsey St.

Contact: Jack Hagan

Sponsored by Northwest Flyfishing Outfitters

May I explain: Matt is a superb guide, extraordinary spey caster, marvelous tier and student of Tube Flies and the Frodin F.I.T.S. system. Attend this class if you live near Portland. Matt is unassuming, but immensely knowledgeable source of information. Watch him tie, and some day when the wallet is flush, book a trip with him on the D or Clack.
