Chase and Aimee Bartee are a young couple from the east coast who are living the dream. They quit their day jobs, bought an old VW camper, and have been traveling the country fly fishing for Trout in remote locations, documenting their travels as they go. The record of their adventures are documented on the Tight Loops website.

Besides being skilled fly fishermen, Chase and Aimee are world-class videographers and photographers. Their spirit, sense of adventure and respect for the environment come through in their films. Simply some of the finest videos you will ever see on travel and fly fishing. I highly suggest the "Journey On" film if you've new to their work.

Chase and Aimee have a new adventure planned for this fall: a canoe trip to a remote part of Labrador Canada. They will be seeking wild Brook Trout on waters few have ever fished or seen. They've started a Kickstarter Campaign to fund the trip .

Consider a donation to help them continue the adventure.

Happy to report that Chase and Aimee have raised over $20,000 from their Kick Starter campaign to fund their fall expedition to Labrador. Should be interesting to see the resulting film and read their reports from that trip.

Maybe I should start a Kick Starter to fund Bill's Fall Fishing Trip to exotic Vernon county? BigGrin

Gurth could use a bass boat too.

Nothing too extravagant.

18 footer will do but then I'll also need a truck to pull it.

Bill and Gurth,

To help you with your fundraising goals, I will sponsor each of you with a 10 pound bag of ice. Just let me know where to ship.
