“Witness first-hand the glory days of sport fishing’s past as you travel to some of the world’s most fabled
fishing destinations. Come along with fishing industry legends and Rapala Founders, Ray Ostrom & Ron Weber plus Bill Cullerton - Rapala’s first rep group namesake with a supporting cast of others from Ray Scott, founder of B.A.S.S., Mark Sosin, legendary saltwater angler and fishing celebrity and the local guides that put them on some of the best fishing in the western hemisphere.
Filmed in the 1960s into the 1970s, witness a bygone era with trips from Alaska to the Amazon to the Baja and Costa Rica featuring fishing gear, tackle and boats from the fledgling days of some of today’s most famous brands that will make any collector swoon.
Created by Ray Ostrom, these films, from the Normark Film Library and the Estate of Norma and Raymond Ostrom, were used to share the excitement of fishing with fisherman across the country. Loaned to fishing clubs, American Legions and, on special occasions, shown as feature films at local Minneapolis Movie Theatres. Ray, an avid photographer and film maker as well as fisherman, was the driving force behind the concept and creation of this series.”
