Summer Haze Part 1

In Summer Haze, acclaimed film maker Robert Thompson celebrates the rebirth of warm water fly fishing in America's Upper Midwest. Long overshadowed by the cold water attractions of Trout and Salmon in the eyes of the ardent fly angler, warm water species such as Large and Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Musky are shown to provide just as much of a challenge and ultimately just as much fun as their illustrious cousins. The film intertwines the stories of various enthusiasts and guides based on or around the lakes and rivers of Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri and shows just how diverse the fishing can be. From the urban lake front of downtown Chicago where Bob Rogers has been fishing for over 30 years but is still bemused by the capricious nature of Lake Michigan's Smallmouth Bass, to the unspoilt wilderness of the Manistee River where Dave Barkman runs a busy tackle shop and is out guiding over 100 days a year. He's adamant that in the warmer summer months you can't beat the excitement you get when a large Northern Pike crashes on to your fly.
