A Short Film Focused on Women Anglers in Southeast Alaska

Fly Fishing, Southeast Alaska, Women Anglers: Reel Happiness.  We are excited to support Kayla Roys and Sydney Akagi’s project focusing on women anglers in Southeast.

Kayla and Sydney’s team of Alaskan film producers and female anglers are currently applying to the Trout Unlimited F3T Fly Fishing Grant. This award amount is up to $15,000 that will go towards creating this film. To qualify for this grant we must first raise a percentage of the cost we are asking for, this is where the Kickstarter comes in!

If awarded this grant, the film will be on tour during the 2017 Trout Unlimited film tour to about 100 cities in the United States.

Although the initial goal has been reached, please consider adding additional support to Reel Happiness.  Your support of Alaskan projects not only encourages future projects, but also secures much needed additional funds to help make Reel Happiness a fantastic representation of Alaskan women anglers and will help to offset travel costs.16889a1f4d611b9bbfd3cef8ac443fe9_original

When you support Reel Happiness, you also receive a pretty snazzy Messy Hair Stubborn Spirit T-Shirt design, that by all means captures the spirit of all Alaskan women anglers.

Andrew Grillos Fly Fishing: Global Perspective to Our Local Fisheries

1398317599251

From Colorado, Alaska, Washington to Chile, Argentina and New Zealand, Andrew Grillos has spent a few hours on the water guiding clients and putting a whole lot of fun in Fly Fishing.

For me, fly fishing has always been about having fun while in the outdoors.  Whether you’re an expert or have never touched a fly rod, I consider a day to be successful when we can have a good time on the water.  Whether it’s catching some fish, learning a thing or two, or just enjoying being the escape of being outside, these are all things that can make a guide day a success in my eyes.”
