Roadtrip Issue


New rule: No one is allowed to use Intro by XX as the soundtrack for a fly fishing video ever again. Along with M83's Midnight City, it is the most overused track in the category.

Even gear guys with GoPros use it.

There are only two logical conclusions that can be made from watching this 'video'. 1) From complete lack of experience you have no idea what you are doing or 2) you have no regard for the fishes you catch and their survival. In the northeast, weather can be harsh in the winter with lots of snow and very low temperatures. Clearly from the sight of your fuzzy Patagonia jackets and head socks you experienced this first hand. Fishes pass water through their gills to breath. Water freezes at temperatures below 32F. Pulling a fish from the water at that temperature to get a go pro shot of a fish you caught speydicating with an estaz egg can have detrimental effects on that fish's survivabilty. Just because it swam away doesn't mean it survived. Your 'video' is a repeaticious onslaught of 700 shots of someone holding up fish to camera with a track, which as previously mentioned, is beyond played out. For the sake of our fish please stay south of the border. Thanks.

Oh NO! MC is playing THIS and not my albie movie. I definitely did something wrong.....
I've already seen this regurgitated movie and everyone like it 500 times. The author of the first post has it pegged for what it is. I just don't really care that much about protecting lake boots and finless browns - other than that I really liked it :)

Did anyone else notice the brown with the fly in the belly coming in sideways a at 1:46 in the video. Bro this is sweet lets go snag lake run browns and get hero shots BOOM! all this is missing is a strait brim ballcap and some guys talking about the tug is the drug, with an indicator.

Those are some gross, dark fish. I really liked the brown with completely black fins. So Midwest...

Thanks for explaining that winter is cold in NY and reminding everyone the freezing temp is 32. You must be a fucking genius. Also, numbering your explanation really helped me better understand, as opposed to just using the word "and". Stay above the mason-dixon line, or where ever you are, and definitely out of WNC. Keep it up T-grimes, Kane and S.C.O.F.!!! Thanks for killin it (no pun intended).
