Much betterer than discussing drones, wars and energy credits.

    Am I the only one that thinks that montages are an over used device in fishing videos?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I was just about to complain, actually.

    Why is everything in a fly-fishing video super slo-mo? Tying flies slo-mo, casting, hooking, laughing, standing by your truck drinking budweiser. . .slo mo.

    And as a personal matter I am getting tired of seeing the ditch in the desert making it into all of these films. They make it look like some kind of idyllic paradise, instead of the zoo it is.

    Pick any hobby that people shoot video for...it's not just fly fishing.

    I have been to the FF film festivals when I was in NY. Now it is too far to drive for something like that.

    That's real speed. It's just tough to move very fast while one is gazing at his navel.
  • And another thing: why does everything have to be some kind of spiritual quest? Can't I just go fishing?

    Dude. Wicked burn.

    I get sick and tired of all stuff like this. Everything anybody does is a heroic effort that should be celebrated with slo-mo sequences.

    Show me some scenery, not some **** slowly smiling.

    ****. You beat me to it.

    I blame Emerson and Thoreau. Honestly. Those guys were self-loving dbags.

    Thoreau would have defaulted on his student loans in order to protest slavery.

    Exactly. The guy chose to be a fishing guide, not a monk.

    I like the ones that are travel shows. I get to see what it is like to fish somewhere I will never be able to go. Plus I suppose if I was better at catching fish, I wouldn't have to watch other people do it.

    Did I mention we have no water?

    Let me ask my fellow alum if I should be sorry:

    Me: Chet, should I be sorry?
    Chester Arthur: Hells no. You're a champion!
    Me: BOFA!

    Maybe I'm missing something here but the producers came across as total azzhats to me. Why? At about 1:58 they show someone igniting a streamside campfire. Unless those logs are made of thermite, they had to of poured an accelerant on it. Who the %^&# dumps lighter fluid/gasoline on the ground next to a **** stream. Yeah, those azzholes are all about "the soul of fishing" until they decide they need to dump a cup of petro-chemicals right next to the water in order to get their shot. F them.

    When I was in the AF, my roommate worked at the test track where we tested missile guidance systems and other equipment. The rockets that would operate on the track used solid rocket fuel and there was always some that would come out of the rocket during the test. He kept a few sticks of it in the barracks. I asked why would you take that stuff home. He said, "Its awesome for starting camp fires." I was never happier than the day I got a new roommate.

    It was scary considering how little it took to set it off.

    I remember in chemistry our teacher brought in pure phosphorus stored in water. When he took some out and exposed it to air, it self-ignited- scary stuff..

    I remember that as well.

    I also remember when he told us you can extract pure hydrogen by cutting up aluminum ("aluminium" to lesser breeds without the law) and adding it to a solution of lye.

    It worked really well, although it took about three months for my eyebrows, eye lashes and the hair on the back of my hands to grow back after the explosion and mini fireball.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.
