As a kayaker, I am fortunate when I see new water but it never seems to come often enough. When you do find yourself somewhere new, it forces, and teaches, you to focus on finding a new technique or a different rhythm to the way you kayak or more importantly the way you fish.
The year was 1938, and three French paddlers had taken it upon themselves to be the first to paddle the untamed and un-dammed rivers of the American west. They took with them on their expedition a camera to capture their adventure on 16mm color film and the footage has sat in archives for years.
