While we were busy working on Le Mouching, we almost missed one of the most important news for all of you flyfishing filmmakers, the new Go Pro 4, everyone talked about it, you probably have seen it on every website, but as fly fishing film specialists, we had to remind you that you can get the top of the range camera made for adventure! But please, please, please, never forget that this jewel of a camera can become your worst enemy… just think about it when you shoot: what are you going to edit and what will your film look like? We don’t want to get sick (and bored to death) anymore by watching a whole film shot with a Go Pro from the head or from the chest of a fisherman!
We always need them, wherever we go, a lighter to start a fire, to burn nylons or to light a cigar and a pocket knife for everything. What about getting both at the same time? That’s when Coleman’s multi tool lighter comes handy. And talking about lighters, it’s more than a lighter it’s almost a blow torch! As for the tools: you get a knife, a can opener, a saw and a file! I’m sure this is going to become your best friend and you’ll never be able to go anywhere without it! A must have!
Okay, we all have a tent and let’s be honest, it’s fucking uggly, boring and with no style, wether it’s a tent you pack in you car, you carry in your bagpack or you you have in your garden, when buying a tent we’ve always been looking at two things, how many can fit in? And how leight can it be! But now, thanks to Field Candy you can add a third question: how good will it look! This is the end of dull camping, my friends! You can choose from so many graphics and if you don’t find what you like, you can even have a tent printed with your wildest dreams! What about a Mouching tent? Well, of course, it’s not cheap… from 265 to 600$, but I can assure you, you’ll instantly make new friends!
With summer, naturally, we spend our time trying to catch Ninja trouts in some small streams and shallow waters…that’s fun for sure! But it ain’t easy at all. Often you can see those trouts quietly dancing in streams, living their lives, just happy to swim and eat. “It’s gonna be easy dude, I’ll show you”… Yeah, well…two false-cast and a presentation later, you’ve spooked all the trouts of the river…A damn classic. That’s how a friend wiped my nose using a natural fly line instead of my fluo green, surface slapping, heavy 5wt line. For example, on a pool where I painstakingly caught one fish by surprise, he just waited for 30 minutes and caught 3 fish, even though they were scarcely rising. I was crazy…and wanted to figure it out. Then pool after pool we played the game “one for you, one for me” and we saw many times that where I spooked trouts just by casting, he often could land a fly with discretion and have a chance to catch them. Well…I will not say this is THE solution, that natural will spread around good vibes, and make trouts say “Dude you’re fishin’ in natural?! Can’t resist that swag!”…
