Guys, I've decided to make a fly-fishing video

It consists of me rummaging around in my garage looking for my lucky fishing shirt, arguing with my wife about how long I'll be gone, and fighting with my buddy for the last Budweiser. Super slo-mo, of course.

I'm on a vision quest.

    What about the part where you stop at the gas station on the way for gas and tobacco?

    yeah. The neck behind the counter can stand-in as the bodhisattva.

    Elitist.

    So the four inch brookies from the Driftless count?

  • This is not a video about the Wabash. This is a spiritual quest.

    Sounds familiar except for the Budweiser part...yuck

    It also leaves out that I stopped for a beer and burger after fishing and I got home later than what I told my wife.

    Although these days she has given up on me. If I tell her I will be home at 9pm she automatically adds 2 hours to it.

    There is Central Standard Time and then there is Joe Time...at least thats what she tells me

    **** you both.

    I'll drink my cheap wine and Banquet beer on my jon boat at real speed, thanks. You guys can give each other handies about which hatch is about ready to pop.
  • only in a fly fishing film could a "handie" be considered art.

    Cut to the interior of a pickup truck driving down the road.

    Sherb: that hannah, can she get any more self involved?
    Sep: the hell you talking about about?
    Sherb: don't be such a marnie.

    Cut to truck plowing into a sad sad boy in a Union College hockey Jersey riding an awesome fat bike.

    Sherb and Sep: high five!
  • Do I get to run over the guy with the bike body armor in super slo-mo?

    'cause this is an art film gents.

    You have to montage it also. Several shots from several different angles.
    '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
