Episode two of Hooke sees Derek Martin and Philippe Laperriere travel to the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia to catch a mythical big Steelhead on the fly. Both men have dreamed of catching one of these beasts their entire lives, and local wild man Francois Blanchet is the man to help them do it. Steelhead are a sea running variety of the rainbow trout, which travel out to sea to fatten up before returning to the rivers to spawn. The crew begin on the big water of the Skeena and the intimate backwaters of the Lakelse, searching through their boxes for the perfect fly. After mushroom picking and woodcarving with the locals, they head for the Bulkley river where the big fish are finally willing to bite, where Francois shares his philosophy of how to live off the land and respect the natural world.
