BIGFORK, Mont. -( Conservation Hawks, Inc., a group of hunters and anglers working to defend America’s sporting heritage, has just released its new angling film, CHROME.

The 12 minute film, which has been touring the U.S. with the 2016 Fly Fishing Film Tour, is currently available via YouTube and Vimeo.

CHROME features six accomplish anglers – Tom Rosenbauer of Orvis, Dylan Tomine of Patagonia, Hannah Belford of Damdochax River Lodge, Kate Taylor of Frigate Travel, professional photographer Tim Romano, and Todd Tanner of Conservation Hawks – who fish together for steelhead in northern British Columbia.

The film has received numerous accolades. Hal Herring, author of Field & Stream’s The Conservationist and Trout Unlimited’s 2015 Conservation Communicator of the Year, writes:

“There are myriad reasons to tackle the challenges of climate change, right now. But this short film, with its insistence on beauty and the sheer wonder of fly fishing for steelhead, may make the most powerful argument of all: we have to act to save what we love.” Monte Burke, best-selling author and staff writer at Forbes, describes the film as “excellent” and a “clarion call,” and says “we must heed it.”

Noted author and outdoorsman Seamus McGraw calls CHROME “visually stunning, poetic, and above all human,” and goes on to say, “I heartily recommend it.”

CHROME celebrates the joy and passion of fly fishing for steelhead, and educates anglers on the looming threats of climate change and ocean acidification. The film, which is a collaboration between Conservation Hawks and the cinematic team at Conservation Media, looks at our moral responsibility to protect cold, clean waters and healthy landscapes, and to stand up for future generations of Americans.

CHROME was made with support from the following iconic brands, businesses and organizations: Orvis, Patagonia, Scientific Anglers, Costa, Simms, Sage, The Boat Company, The McIntosh Foundation, Ocean Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Trout Unlimited, American Fly Fishing Trade Association, TroutHunter, Sweetwater Travel Co., Hatch Magazine, Tim Romano Photography and the Oskar Blues Brewery.
