For this issue’s T-Motion Theater, I was especially thrilled to be able to introduce my friends from Eddie Bauer to the crew at The Evening Hatch’s Black Bear Lodge on the Upper Columbia River in Washington State. Lel Tone, Ski guide for Eddie Bauer, and Andrew Bennett, Eddie Bauer Sport Shop Guide came along with me to this amazing spot on the Columbia River just south of British Columbia.
Lel put on a fish slaying clinic the first 30 minutes on the water, catching some of the most beautiful rainbow trout the area supports. Andrew had a good go, as well, and we ended up with some great video. Lel’s experience as a heli ski guide came in handy on the river, as she compared skiing big terrain to fishing the big water of the Columbia River.
