In an authentic fish bum adventure bass film, Todd Moen captures a creative old-west journey to fly fish eastern Oregon’s high desert streams. Brian O’Keefe returns on camera to chase smallmouth bass, after nearly 13 years since the original “Alpine Bass” made its debut on Catch Magazine. Now, with drought and warmer water affecting much of the western landscape, and in an effort to lessen the impact of fly fishing for trout in the dry season, Moen aims for bass – a warm water gamefish. With both aerials and subsurface shots, this film captures a rustic and low budget adventure only an angler like O’Keefe can pull off. Enjoy the action and get inspired by this sure-to-be classic film.
