Fish Out Of Water - Episode 1

Today, we're excited to share the first episode of Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters' three-part series, Fish Out of Water. We were there to help as Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters debuted this series last night at Steel Toe Brewing in St. Louis Park in partnership with Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. The event featured music from The Boomchucks and appetizers from the three chefs featured in the film. We're grateful for the help of AVEX and those who donated to the auction: Rapala, W.R. Case & Sons, Frost River, The General Store of Minnetonka, Full Curl, Far Out Fly Fishing and Derek DeYoung.

In October, three Minnesota chefs journeyed into the Boundary Waters to fish and cook. Fish Out of Water follows Boundary Waters novices, Lachelle Cunningham of Breaking Bread Café and Amanda Cowette of Wise Acre Eatery, as they join experienced sportsman Lukas Leaf of Al Vento and their guide, Dave Seaton of Hungry Jack Outfitters. Their adventure showcases the beauty of this fishing and hunting destination threatened by Twin Metals and other companies’ proposed sulfide-ore copper mines.

Episode one starts the same way many Boundary Waters trips start, with a road trip up north. Enjoy!

Episode Two - Release Date: Nov. 24
Episode Three - Release Date: Dec. 1
