I’ve got a thing for urban fishing. Maybe I’m weird, maybe it’s because I lived almost all my life in large cities, I don’t know, but I just dig fishing surrounded by concrete. And when I see those guys, hunting big tarpons under highway bridges, I just want to be on the boat with them. And the big fight in the dark, that is something you’ll remember for long.
I think there’s a couple of lessons to be drawn here. Let me just point three of them. (1) DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro X will give you plenty of cool effects to spice up your rushes, and make your film fun to watch. (2) Denmark has small streams choke-full of fat sea-trouts. Like 50 kilograms of them by the kilometer. (3) It seems that Danish people love to say lots of fucks.
All of this is really cool.
We’re told there was a solid South-West swell on Teahupoo Tahiti recently. Orange code swell. And that, my friends, means a freaking lot of fast moving water. Have a look at the locals riding the beast, it’s just crazy…
Ever heard of milkfish? No? Clearly not a name conjuring racing cars images like GT. Apparently the name is misleading, though. Those Chanos chanos guys turn out to be crazy turbocharged mofos that will simply kick your sorry ass if you’re not really well prepared for all sorts of abuse. Need I mention my bucket list just went one item longuer? How does one get to that St François Atoll again?
Here’s to all of us who thought that fly fishing was only in crystal clear water with wild trout jumping on sunset with a view of the wilderness in the background! Here’s to all of us who just want to have fun, because fly fihsing is about having fun, at least that’s how we see it at Le Mouching! So if you are not in the Rockies or Scandinavia if you have an urge to flyfish, I’m sure there is a canal, a lake, a marsh , a pound whatever water you’ll find with a carp waiting for you! Carp Rules ! Kameron Brown, you rock!
Story goes……. packed my van, grabbed my dog Koa, picked up my bro, and headed out on a 60 day road trip around AMERICA. Here is a stop we made in Louisiana that just about blew our minds….. I fished with an Orvis 3wt
Filled our bellies with BOUDIN and beer just shortly after…… and smelled like poo. I love America.
When you put all your life into fly fishing, you don’t care about what is happening, you just fish, no matter what, you cannot live without fishing, because fishing gets you like an obsession but we are never sure if it’s catching fish that is important or the lifestyle and friendship that goes with it, the everlasting question. The early days of Summer, end of Spring, when nature is just at its best for troutfishing. That’s when you cheer up, my brother, because nothing else matters!
You’ve had a particularly nice day on the river with your best buddy, and there was a friend kind enough to follow with a camera, or you’re cunning enough to make do between the two of you to capture that special moment on film. How long does it take to convey the feeling of that day? How long do you need to get a story rolling? Well, not that long. The guys at Ziafly do it in 58 seconds. And leave ux whishing for more, which is faaaar better than bored. Cut it short, guys.
