If you are familiar with The Drake Magazine “Five Minutes of Fly Fishing Film Contest” or was lucky enough to catch the Fly Fishing Film Tour last year, the name RA Beattie should be somewhat of a household name to you. In 2006, “Angling Addiction“, a Beattie Outdoor Productions film took home The Drake Magazine film award for the best story. And again in 2007, RA Beattie took home the award for best story with “Kate and Mark“.
For the past several years, RA Beattie and his crew have been traveling around the world from fishing marble trout in Slovenia to completing a first descent of a tributary of the Nushagak River. After watching his films it’s clear the passion RA Beattie has for fly fishing.
The film I’m anticipating the most is “First Descent Alaska” about the first descent of a tributary of the Nushagak River. What can I say? My bias should be obvious.
The most ingenious fly fishing film by far and the “Greatest Video Entered on the Drake….and did not make the cut????” is Beattie Outdoor Productions “Green Screen Short Film“.

If you’ve never heard of or seen a film by RA Beattie this is your lucky day. If you have, you know like I do that RA Beattie is one of the best filmmakers around.
