First it’s a film. Fantastic colors slowly emerging out of the blue towards the light of the day, beautiful fisherman figures putting rods together in the cold morning stillness. You feel it, don’t you? That’s the mark of great images, this ability to take you somewhere that is at the same time new and also familiar. The big river, the chill, the friends and the ritual. Words and long silences. The long casts, again, again, again… The search for chrome. [vimeo=]

And then there’s a message. There must be some sense of purpose associated to that much beauty. Hence the noble decision to try and do something to protect what’s really precious to us all: youth, and rivers. If you wish to help, nothing’s simpler: consider buying the beauiful wallets the Fly Fishing Collaborative proposes. Superb flies and craftsmanship, for a cause.
