A steelhead advocate and long-time angler, Terry Myers, spent 2015 in search of a wild steelhead on a different river each month of the year, painting her fishing prowess in a self-effacing and amusing light. After successfully hooking a wild steelhead in all but two months, she now sets her sight on finding these fish to complete her quest. The film explores the experience of a 2 year quest by an unassuming but determined woman as she tries to unlock the mysteries of catching wild steelhead throughout the course of a year. With her husband Jerry in tow, we see the challenges they face with depleting runs, while still fully enjoying every aspect of being on the river together – rain or shine, fish or no fish.
