At the turn of the 20th Century, a handful of pioneers carried their fly rods into California’s remote north coast and gave birth to a culture that would revolutionize their sport. For a select few, steelhead fly fishing became an obsessive pursuit without compromise.

Leading the pack was the mythical Bill Schaadt, an off-kilter angler famous for his ruthless pursuit to be "in the fish." The new endeavor was ruled by a demanding, unspoken code, which made "breaking in" almost as difficult as "breaking out."

By the early 1980s, the Golden State’s coastal fisheries found themselves caught in a spiraling decline. As California searched for its disappearing salmon and steelhead, these men foraged for their souls.
