Location filming in Montana officially got underway yesterday. We got an early morning start. Rolled out of Kelowna, headed for the border crossing at Grand Forks at 5am. We cruised through into Washington state without delay just after it opened. Made a B line straight for Spokane, got on the 90 and never looked back. After an hour long compulsory stop at Cabela's in Post Falls, Idaho we made straight for Missoula with a quick detour for fishing licences at St. Regis. We had hoped to stop and do some fishing on the way but it became quickly apparent that run-off was still in full swing in Montana much like BC. Good thing we are heading for Montana's spring creeks. We followed the Clark Fork along I-90 and it was floating upside down with the mud on the top. After a lunch at the Stockman's in Missoula we drove on to Belgrade and spent our first night at the Ponds. Thanks to Doug and Mary Hamilton our hosts. The Ponds cabins are a great place to stay and just a few miles down Dry Creek Rd. is Milesnick's Ranch and the famous Thompson and Benhart spring creeks where we'll be shooting for the day.
Cinema Digital has just finished a corporate video for Trout Waters Fly and Tackle. The video was shot using the Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16mm lens and the Canon 50mm 1.8 prime. A Sony HVR-V1U was used along with a Glidecam 2000 for the steadicam shots. Trout Waters is a sponsor for SPRING CREEK: Ranchers, Anglers, Water and Trout
