An Ode To Oregon

Beautifully done

Maybe it's just January and I'm hungry for the warmth of sunshine. I'm not a huge fan of overplayed pensive narrated videos that get over the top philosophic.

If you turn the sound off, to their credit they captured that whimsical folkloric air and fable we all have in our minds. Why we love the outdoors moving water and why it's so important to protect it. It gave me the same nuanced romanticism that River Runs Through It brought only instead of poetry in words and ryhme this is purely illustrious cinema

Wish there was no narration and just the sound of fly rods, water splashing, gears changing, coyotes howling, and bird song . . .

It did remind me of the what I will do to try and fill the void when my daughter departs our home to begin her own adventures in the world and what I will do to futilely try and fill her abscence

Very cool vid

James, you made my day. However, you should post it under conservation vids because that is what it is. Access is my number one issue. Those who wish to privatize our public lands are the sportsman's enemies - even more than PETA. Thanks a ton for posting this.

Nice Video

...excellent stuff J. As a public service I have to admit I watched in fast motion until the 11:10 point where the fishing occurred. But your heart was right
