Definitely worth the time to watch and then think about it. That joke at the last sounds like I could have written it. Thanks for posting.

Give yourself more credit, that joke was weak.

Some stunning photography but a bit too artsy and philosphical for me. Although, the guy telling the joke at the end was great! YPJ

Great video and narrative. Hope you don't mind that I stole it and reposted it on our Face Book page.

I did a little googling for Sylvester Nemes (the joke teller) and it seems he is a renown soft hackle guy out of Montana who died in 2011. I didn't look at the video date but the clip was probably a tribute to him.

Not at all... I reposted from a UK site.

Amen, that's the clearest definition of fly fishing I've ever heard. It is to the individual alone what makes you happy.
