About

The Meadows Project is a web series that tells the story of three guys and their love for fly fishing, their home state of Vermont, and the beautiful native brook trout that live there. We hope that our story along with our efforts in conservation and preservation will inspire others to get involved in their local watershed's health.

Since the introduction of the German native brown trout and the Pacific Northwest native rainbow trout to Vermont, the population of lowland brook trout in southern Vermont has dwindled. This fact coupled with astronomically high bag limits have drastically changed lowland ecosystems. However, high in the mountains, our beloved fish still flourish. Our goal at The Meadows Project is to ensure that this resource remains for future generations to enjoy. 

For our dream to become a reality, we need your help! Producing the show has proven to be taxing on our old computer and we desperately need to upgrade to produce a show to reflect our high standards. We also need a second camera and several lenses to improve the shows quality. Please check us out on Vimeo, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to see the show and for more in-depth information about us and what we stand for. You can also go to our official site to see exlusive photographs.

As well as being a web series, The Meadows Project will be released as a full length documentary at the end of the 2015 trout fishing season in Vermont.

Risks and challenges

we at The Meadows Project are committed to excellence in our content and when we set deadlines we meet them. We are firm believers in the "the show must go on" mentality. Weather will not deter us from getting the shot. As with any web series or television show, there will be inevitable setbacks in production. However, when we advertise a date of release, we will release that episode then. The DVD release is subject to unforeseeable setbacks. The latest date that we will release it is the first of the year.
