That's a great video, Jason! thanks for sharing! Do you know of any other well made fly fishing documentaries or movies online like this? Or have any offline recommendations?

Here's the complete film.



I have a bunch of others on DVD but I don't know to many online.

I Think we have had a similar discussion before. I am still not accepted in the fly fishing community. Lol

Randy, you're all good in my book. I hope to make it down there this summer with my 7wt and some plastic worms to catch some of those shoal bass.

That's cause you put all of us to shame catching 30 shoalies in an afternoon. Not because of chunking plastics.

Ha. Somebody this weekend mentioned my reply to this thread and I said "Huh?"

In the future, should I post some troll-type reply at midnight on Friday just assume alcohol was involved. In retrospect there should have been some type of dramatic exaggeration like, "Nnnnooooooooo!!!!!" to get the tongue in cheek effect. Also, should I ever use the term "heathen" or talk about the only proper flyfishing way is, "using dry flies, fished only upstream, using only bamboo and silk, wearing plaid, etc."...that too is usually tongue in cheek.

Back to the original question, if you want to flyfish with stank scent and talk about it to folks...I would look at it kind of like "cussing". There are some very reverant traditional flyfishers (even on NGTO) who have great passion about the sport...and there are folks that don't care how they catch a fish. If you don't want to offend, be wary of whomever's company you are keeping.
