***CHECK OUR BLOG @ www.tightloopsfly.com/notesfromtheroad FOR UPDATES ON OUR CURRENT TRAVELS***

In the summer of 2015, filmmakers Aimee Savard and Chase Bartee packed up their belongings, moved into their 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia, and left their home in Massachusetts. The goal? To make their way to Montana, and spend as much time as humanly possible exploring, fly fishing, and documenting their travels. Living in an eighty square foot van would pose its challenges. But the lessons learned and experiences gained over the next three and a half months would set events into motion that would change their lives forever.

Directed / Shot / Cut / Mixed / & Colored by Chase Bartee

Additional Camera / Original Photographs by Aimee Savard

Featuring original songs by Jordan Bartee and the music of Last Good Tooth

    Absolutely stunning. I have my own bus, fly gear, and large format camera. Can I join you on one of your adventures? I’ll do the cooking. 😁 #MayWesty

    Incredible video of the fishing MT has to offer. I saw you were in St.Xavier I’m surprised you didn’t hit up the Bighorn River, you were so close.

  13. Rex Berger on November 19, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Epic

  14. Robb Wolf on November 19, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    Beautiful video! I’m heading to ID and MT at the end of July in my 95 vw Westy. What was the name of the old- Ghost town with the gravel road?

    She can get it

  21. cfctech67 on November 19, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    I was enjoying this video but had to stop watching after 10 minutes because it kept going to an ad break every 3:30 minutes. I’m fine with some ads since you have to make money, but every few minutes during an hour long video is a bit much.

  22. Dcasarez on November 19, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    Thanks for such an amazing adventure.

  23. Tucker Parsons on November 19, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    best video ever

  24. June Bug on November 19, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    21:39 that’s a nice fly you tied. Better than what I do.

  25. shawn moore on November 19, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Beautifully done.Thanks for the repeated reminders of the threats facing these places, as well as the severe damage already done.So few seem include any message of conservation in most fishing glory videos so common on YouYube.

  26. NWBushman on November 19, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Fuckin’ epic cinematography. Really amazing story- kept me glued. You two are great!!! loved it. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Van life and fly fishing- sub

  32. Fly ingDutch on November 19, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    Beautiful without the fishing let alone with it!
    Question: why are the trout so skinny? Good size but narrow… is that a time of year thing?

  33. Mark Stocks on November 19, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Im only 3 years late, but this is far and away, one of the best produced videos I have ever seen on Youtube.
    Amazing !!!!!
