Robert Thompson, the filmmaker of Summer Haze, will be speaking at the Oak Brook Trout Unlimited meeting on Wednesday night at 7:00 pm at the Oak Brook Rec center, Central park west building, and he will be talking about his latest film.  

Go to www.obtu.org for directions to the building.

Here is what Flylords mag had to say about it:

"Fly fishing is continuing to evolve into a sport where more unique species are targeted every day. Smallmouth bass are quickly becoming one of my favorite species to target on the fly. This film trailer targets these fish, as well as quite a few other freshwater predators that are changing the way that we catch fish on the fly.

In this video, Robert Thompson shows us the warmwater opportunities that the midwest has to offer. This includes some crazy topwater eats, as well as some fish that fight so hard, you won’t believe you are in a landlocked state. This film is already getting us pumped for summer and we can’t wait to see the full production."


OBTU Meetings Resume September 18 With Robert Thompson on Great Lakes Steelhead and Conservation Issues


Our monthly meetings resume on Wednesday, September 18 at the Oak Brook Recreation Center Central Park West Building at 7 p.m. with Robert Thompson as our featured speaker.  Guests are welcome.


Thompson is an Emmy awarding winning producer currently living and working in Chicago.


A former Michigander, Thompson grew up in the northeast part of the state as an avid fisherman and found his way to a fly rod in 2004. Fly fishing soon became an obsession and in 2009, he combined his background in film and television and his love for fly fishing to create fly fishing documentaries. His first film "Night of the Hex" was released in 2010, followed closely by" Musky County" in 2011, "Heart of the Drifltess" in 2012, "The River" in 2014, "Spey Daze" in 2017 and latest release "Summer Haze."  All of his films are set in the Midwest and parts of four have been featured in the national Fly Fishing Film Tour.
