I know this is an old post but I am new here and this clip is timeless, this really brings me back and reminds me how strong of a bond is formed out on the river. Well done

Thumbs up Great Film gents...Thanks for sharing

In less than 48 hours I will join my fishing brothers on the river...
A 13 hour drive awaits... it will be dark, probably raining but worth the drive as always.

Cheers to all out there preparing for an adventure.


I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

Just got back from fishing with my brothers which this year included my dad, two nephews, niece, and my son all under the age of 10. Great trip. Priceless.

Get out there and enjoy time with those you love.

Part of this film at the beginning made me think about how I have complained with my fishing buddies many times about “maybe we live in wrong time for this particular passion” - the part where he talked about keeping at it in the mere hope. There is a quote from Russell Chatham, the artist and essayist at the end of the movie “Rivers of a Lost Coast” where he says something like the Steelhead and Salmon numbers on the rivers he has known have fallen so much since the time he started that quote “it’s not worth it to fish for a whole day and catch only one one or two fish”. For most of us these days catching just one fish in a day is full success. I suppose there IS something ennobling about really having to work and even suffer some in the environment for this passion. And there was certainly a certain crassness of the behaviors of the “fun hogs” of the golden era in the PNW, to use a term coined by another great essayist Jack Turner, not that this was the only, or even the main reason for the decline. So yeah, when I’m really forcing myself to be positive I think about the “ennobling” aspect. Other times I admit I feel like I’m just a member of a masochistic cult.

A wonderful film. And you are not alone!
For many of us, fishing was a strong anchor in life, no matter which difficulties one was going through, alone or with brothers.
Fishing is also school for life, especially hunting chromers, with all the personal attributes one has to bring or build up to succeed or to continue.

It’s a privilege for every human to have a passion in general, no matter what it is.
And for us, the fishing gives so much more than the fish.

Time is running... A little bit of work, a little bit married, fishing, hunting... What else?
