When i grow up and have a Canon 7D i want to make movies like this. The camera work and lighting is drop dead gorgeous.

Maybe i should make the Austin version, me with Water Wings, fishing a 2WT, searching for two foot bass. I truly think that would be awesome.

Anyway, you can purchase this amazing video at www.tapamthemovie.com

 


Just found this video courtesy of Fishinghistory.blogspot.com and quite simply had to pass it along. Love the video, the fish, the fiberglass rod and the boat…but come on, what was the deal with the buzz cuts? I’m sure i’m not the only one that thinks that if that dude was sporting a ‘fro and a beard he would look much more bad ass?

I’m guessing he might look more like this rad dude.

All right, i know…this has been out since 2009 and probably most people visiting here have seen it, and maybe even own it. BUT did you know that the ENTIRE movie is now available for streaming over at HULU?

I found this out back in December thanks to Angler Wannabe. I re-watched it tonight on Hulu and was amazed at the amount of work that went into the beautiful film. If you happen to be new to the sport, or somehow missed it the first time around, i recommend watching the trailer and then following the link over to Hulu (they and WordPress don’t get along so i can’t embed it) popping some popcorn and soaking in the beauty of New Zealand and their amazing fisheries.

And as an added bonus, now you know that you can stream it on the internet, so maybe you should be watching it at work…on your lunch break.

After reading a recent post over at Angler Wannabe i started to think about this whole Fly Fishing video, and the lack thereof, a whole lot more. In the tiny world that i spend so much time in, it seems that there are many, many fly fishers just waiting to become consumers of everything fly fishing. Me included. But today while hiking the Town Lake Trail here in Austin, i suddenly had a minor revelation. There was one fly-fisher hiking the trail (me) looking for spots even though he knew that the middle of the winter would bring nothing from the shallow banks. Conversely, there were HUNDREDS of joggers/runners that passed me in the 45 minutes that he was there hitting the banks. So in my mind we are this CRAZY POPULATION over running every creek and river known to man, but in reality we are a VERY SMALL part of the Total Crazy. Something i’ll try to keep in mind when i can’t find fly-fishing DVD’s on Netflix, much less streaming ones.

In an effort to keep my sanity during these cold months where the only good fly fishing comes in tiny bursts (can’t be on the Guadalupe everyday), i’d like to keep you and i inspired with some visual stimulation. Let me know what you think. If  you’re into that’s great, but if it’s just something that makes me as annoying as other blogs let me know.

I only want to post videos if i think;

  1. They are quality videos, HD, 16:9 etc.
  2. They are something i truly believe most readers might be interested in, whether they know it or not.

Let me know what you want. In the meantime, check out this beautiful video shot in Chile.
