The idea for the new “Through the Guides” series from the folks at, is to feature the lives of fly fishing guides that excel at their game and have stories to tell.

It’s not surprising that their first featured guide is local All Water Guide, and all around bad ass Alvin Dedaux, the only guide i know that used to work the stage in a funk/rock band (Bad Mutha Goose). For those that don’t know him, he’s a fishing sensei, with rockstar looks, sporting dreads and a casual demeanor that can make even the crappiest day on the water feel like you got to hang out with the Coolest Cat on the planet.

What was surprising as hell though well watching this video was what i noticed on Alvins’ boat at :57 seconds in the video. Yep, that’s a die Fische “Texas Dry Fly Sticker” seen on the right side of the bench, and hell yeah, that’s how we roll.


Okay, okay, it’s only a minute long teaser but it’s a whole lot more exciting than the one minute trailer for Star Wars that started floating around about the same time. Sure it doesn’t have the Millennium Falcon, but it does have my two all time favorite activities, surfing and fly fishing IN THE SAME VIDEO! I’m not sure exactly who all is involved with Tributaries Digital Cinema, but judging from the bad ass shots and editing, “The Man” R.C. Cone must be at the helm.

Check it out, get psyched and maybe even pre-order your own copy, or wait until the Fly Fishing Film Tour comes your way (it’s one of the features). If nothing else though, just let it stoke you to get out there and follow your passion!

If the above image looks familiar to you that’s because it’s from the video shared here last year entitled “In Search of Grande”. There’s a great right up on this adventure in the fresh new issue of This is Fly #49. In addition to all the regular features (love the soundtracks) there are some great articles on sculpin, tarpon, fishing in Chile, and more (including an interview with Justin Fuller of Good Apples designs).
