11. And on into Spring... - I collected a lot of footage over the past month. I wanted to wait to make another video (people seem to be watching them, thanks!) until I had at least one large brown trout. I have been wading all winter, trying to get better at fishing from the banks, as fishing from a boat is just a different game. My streamer technique really improved due to this. In a last-ditch effort to get one large brown, I took my little pontoon out to try and increase my chances on a big river with lots of big fish. I went to the MO, got skunked, lost an oar stop and snapped my eight weight. I was much more upset about the skunking. I didn't let it get to me, though, and my plan for the next trip was to just enjoy myself. I had only my six weight with me, and it was quite nice to have one rod and one mindset: just catch a fish. The wind picked up as soon as I hit the Lower Madison, and the water was muddy. It took me a while to realize that the fish are still not in fast water (despite its depth) but with the mud they seemed to be perfectly happy in shallow frog water. My first strike of the day was a rod's length in front of me and a 20 inch brown to boot. Before twenty four hours were up, I had two more, each bigger than the last. The next day I sped to the Upper, was the first to hit the water and jammed a sandwich down my throat as I approached a favorite run (I was too excited to fish to cook breakfast, so I ate my lunch). I like to make a few practice casts before hitting the main run. I remember being ready: I ate my sandwich; I marveled at the clear water; I slowly crept up to within casting distance but stayed far back from the fish; I was rested and alert. One cast, two cast, three and all of a sudden a twenty-three inch brown trout is three feet in the air, looking buttery in the sun. It was all I could do to keep him out of the fast water. He had two of some fisherman's nymphs in him, which I was happy to extract--sucks to be that guy! Later that day, around five thirty, I got another one. At this point I just stopped fishing. I regret this, because those days are so rare, but I really felt like I was being greedy at the time. I went to my truck and cooked my neglected breakfast for dinner. How's that for a life lesson? (Take failure in stride, and prepare for rewarded patience and dedication). Thanks, fishing! - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher

13. Frank Moore: Mending the Line - Tough as nails, gentle as a poet, and determined as a badger, 90 year-old Frank Moore loves to fish. A World War II veteran, in 1944 he landed along with some 150,000 other troops on the beaches of Normandy, France for the D-Day allied invasion. Despite the cacophony of war around him, the young avid fly fisherman couldn’t help but notice the productive fisheries on the rivers he and his fellow troops crossed as they made their way into occupied France. His lifetime accomplishments as a fly fisherman, conservationist and a veteran have earned him many awards, including the prestigious Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor, and recent induction into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame. He has guided and fished with many famous anglers, including actors, congressman and executives. He built and was the long time proprietor of the world renowned Steamboat Inn along the North Umpqua River. And now, reflecting back upon his life, he feels compelled to return to the rivers of Normandy, this time armed not with a gun, but with a fly rod and reel. 70 years later, we will follow Moore as he travels back to Normandy. Once a soldier witnessing the horrors of war, now he will return to these rivers as a fisherman seeking serenity on the water and bringing his life full circle. PROJECT OVERVIEW: This documentary project will profile Frank Moore's inspiring and dynamic life history and follow his return to France to fish the rivers that he crossed so many years ago as a 21 year old soldier amidst the devastation of war. There are few veterans in as good health as Frank, far fewer who have the courage and ability to travel back to France to see the war grounds of their past. In May 2013 the Uncage the Soul Production team will travel to France with Frank and his wife of 70 years, Jeanne, traversing the rivers and World War II landmarks of Normandy. With your support, we can all show our appreciation to this venerable veteran and others like him by making this dream of his a reality, documenting not only his lifetime of accomplishments, but also the beauty that lies in the world of fly fishing, allowing a man to confront his past and embrace his passion in a place that he once helped to free. With your help we can make this dream a reality, showing our appreciation and allowing a man to confront his past and embrace his passion in a place he once helped to free.

17. Fly Fishing Vibes Pulaski Hooké! - Pulaski - the place I had sworn I would never visit again some 18-years ago! Boy am I glad I changed my mind! Well, to say that I changed my mind on my own would not be true, the TRUE motivation behind my journey back was because of two people Fred Campbell and Jeff Bourdages and their incredible project called HOOKE! The VIBE they spoke to me about preceeding our meetings together sounded all great and all but then again, who the hell are these guys I asked myself? Well, after a morning meeting with Fred at his production offices at Fokus in Quebec City and a lunch later that week with Jeff, I found myself amazed by the VIBE - ENERGY and DEDICATION that oozed out of both of them. A few visits to the Hooke.ca website where I watched their videos and this guide was HOOKE himself! We met up at the Fox Hollow lodge in Altmar, NY with big smiles and hugs as if we had know each other for years and years. The VIBE had somehow transferred into all of us and remained the entire time we were together, through good cast and bad, through frozen feet and shared shots of Fireball on the river bank, it was magical and I did not want it to end! Let me back up a bit before I go on... on the first night we met up with Rachel Finn from Lake Placid NY, a fishing and guiding Goddess in her own right - she then turned us on to her friend and local guide/angler and Spey Jedi, Patrick Ross, who kindly took us out fishing for 3-days while he could have been making some $$$ guiding. Feeling the VIBE he said "screw the guiding - I'm hanging with you boys"! The rest, as they say, is history, sit back and feel the VIBES coming through your screen - better yet, get off your asses, go grab a rod and get out there and discover just how much fun you can have if you invest in your soul a bit! Before you watch, please know that this film is entirely based on Fly Fishing with a Double Handed rod, aka, SPEY RODS! You may, from time to time, see some other guys in the background using 'Float' rods, which are basically long rods that use a center-pin reel (a free spool reel) that allows their "bait" usually an egg sack to drift about at the level the fish are holding in hopes that one may open its mouth and eat the sack - oh, and I forgot the best part, the egg sack is guided down the river by a strike indicator, or, bobber, if you prefer. It is a very popular method of fishing, although to me, rather boring, but quite deadly for those of you interested in numbers of hook ups in a day, and, if you enjoy sitting in the same spot for hours and hours. Now, I do not profess to be an expert on this type of fishing and hell, as long as you are out there, I have a tremendous amount of respect for you, especially at -10C, but the only problem, or, dissapointment I have with these anglers is that they NEVER move! As a matter of fact, if a fish takes them down stream for an hour fight, they walk right back to where they where and reclaim that exact spot and this seems to be normal. Problem is, when you are trying to "share" a pool with Spey anglers and other single hand fly fishers, problems may arise and that is what I dislike about this river system. I love the fish, the vibe while I am steadily wading down the river (when I can find a spot to do so) and enjoying the scenery and especially the banter between friends as we cast and fish. That is the best part for me. To think that this happens on ALL rivers would be a big fat FALSE! You will never find this sort of "ownership" of a spot on the rivers in Eastern Canada while fishing for Atlantic salmon and I dare say, on most rivers in Ontario where you find Steelhead. I guess it is a cultural thing that started long ago and it does not seem like there will be much change, at least in this area, which is fine, hell, I got there last, not first! The bottom line is this, there are miles and miles of river and if you pick your spots and are with a few guys rotating though a pool most "float-anglers" will simply get the message and will move on, or, if they do not and they low-hole you (stepping below you to cast in your path) you can always politely explain to them that you were in the process of fishing and that you will indeed end up hooking them if they do not rotate along with you. I do not understand why that is just not the case as everyone could indeed rotate from the top to the bottom of the pool easy enough if they wanted to Anyway, that is not my fight nor is it the vibe I want to impose on anyone else. Either you have the overall VIBE of a ethical angler, or, you don't, I guess. David Bishop http://facebook.com/hookeqc - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher

19. A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 3 - The third part (3 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley. In this episode we first see the incredible power of the spring run off in the Vindelälven river when Petra Sjöberg stops at Vormforsen rapids to study the tribute song "Änglamark" written by Evert Taube to preserve the river from hydro power development. Later, we follow the ardent fly fisherman and fisheries manager Daniel Holmqvist to two of the river's tributaries, Manjaurån and Gargån. Both of these waters are restored after the timber floating era and the fish stocks has exploded after the efforts. Daniel tells us more about this while he's pulling fish after fish.

20. A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 5 - The fifth part (Part 5 of 6) of: A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley. In this episode we follow Erik and Stefan who go up to Gargnäs/Råstrand Fishing Area to try to catch salmon. They have heard that salmon fishing can be very painstaking and in order to improve their chances they ask for help from the local expert, Daniel "DJ" Jonsson. He is the one who has the best knowledge of all the pools in the river and where salmon are found at the moment. What they could not guess was that the DJ had another ace up his sleeve, a local method to get the salmon to strike. Let's watch and see if they succeed in their fishing.
