Two Emmy Nominations for Wide Eye’s Fly Fishing Movie

Who knew a movie about fly fishing could capture so much excitement and attention … not to mention a couple of Emmy nominations? Here at Wide Eye Productions we had a hunch that bringing the fly fishing world together with the beauty of the great northwest was a good mix. This week “The Rocky Mountain Fly Highway” received two Emmy nominations in the categories of “Documentary: Cultural” and “Program Length Photography.” There’s nothing better than having your work recognized; work that, quite literally, took blood, sweat, and tears to make. The tears were mostly from our editor Kevin during the color correction process. But his tireless hours putting the final touch on all that footage was worth it.


The “Rocky Mountain Fly Highway” spanned nearly 2 years of shooting, editing, writing, and producing culminating in a body of work that makes us all so proud. The documentary film covers a 500-mile stretch of highway connecting streams, peaks, deserts, and dense forests all in a magical part of the United States. As an added bonus we were successful in recruiting Emmy award winning actor Tom Skerritt to narrate the movie. He’s probably best known as the father in the movie “A River Runs Through It”, Viper from “Top Gun” and as himself in the film “Ted”.


We love what we do. Making movies like this one only drives us to bring as much beauty into our storytelling as we can. And, we’re especially glad to have you on this wonderful ride with us.
