I don't understand why people fish. It doesn't even look like fun at all.

Beautiful surroundings, beautiful water, beautiful fish. Further proof that I'm living on the wrong side of the continent.

What a stunning place to fish!

I'm listening to the wind & rain on my windows, with more of the same forecast for tomorrow, & I was turning a nice shade of envious green watching that video.

As an aside I find the quality of the cameras now fitted to small drones to be outstanding, not that long ago even the big outside broadcast cameras weren't as good as that.

Right, I have the twitchy feeling after that; time to assemble a rod for a short spell of therapeutic "rod wiggling" in the sitting room now.

Regards, Tyke.👍

Videos like this one really make one consciously aware of being an addict - just seeing nice water in a video is now enough to give me that itchy longing to seek out the next fix. Doesn’t even need to be “fish porn” anymore.

There are so many good videos out there these days, with television or movie quality production, and the interviews with whoever, blah, blah, blah. I almost didn't click because I'm tiring of them.

This is my favorite I've seen a a long while. Produced enough, but still feeling authentic instead of Hollywood-ish professional. I loved it. And a great dog.

Thank you for sharing this one. Well worth the watch.
Wouldn't have been the same without the Lab.
What a scene stealer!

Happy New Year!

I’m one of those people who hate drones in the abstract, and have fantasies of smacking one that gets too close with a baseball bat, but you sure can get some great panoramas, and upward and downward pan shots on the river with them.

I for one, would have liked to see the 'old boys' featured chatting, also fishing on the river. So many swinging (fly, West Coast) style videos increasingly follow the prescribed formula of overhead drone shots, mostly 30 something males on an adventure catching quite a few fish, accompanied by (often) less than relaxing soundtrack.

The result, which does have appeal, starts to have more the feel of a marketing or travel promotional film, albeit in HD. A while ago I sent some of Todd Moen's videos to a old friend of mine in the UK, himself a production designer for movies and advertising. He replied that he thought the filming was great but that the choice of music was overly frantic (often rock) as he considered fishing a more peaceful and contemplative persuit.

I am tempted to agree. In November I drifted serenely down a stretch of river (not quite as glamourous, Great Lakes) with a fellow Speypager, both of us over the age of 50.. life not imitating art that day as we didn't catch much.

(that's me on the left..)

Agreed. At a certain point if overused the technology becomes the focus, or rather literally the horizon in the case of the drones, instead of the actual subject.
