In the spring of 2020, fly fisherman Fred Campbell was itching to get back to the water. The start of the COVID-19 pandemic had turned the world on its head and he was struggling with the isolation of social distancing. For him, fly-fishing in Canada felt like a saving grace.

Out There, from Hooké, follows Campbell and a few friends as they search for pike, Atlantic salmon, steelhead, and coho on the rivers of British Columbia, celebrating the sport and how the outdoors can help us through challenging circumstances.
