Shannon Skelton and his company CFI Global Fisheries Enhancement are profiled in an awesome short film entitled “The River Restored,” which can be viewed here.  CFI Global recently broke ground on a spring creek restoration project outside of Gunnison, CO, and filmmaker Travis Lowe  who is following  the progress of that restoration project for his feature documentary Spring Creek: Ranchers, Anglers, Water and Trout, spent a week shooting “The River Restored” with  Skelton.

The film can currently be viewed on the fly fishing blog Moldy Chum.
