Mail it in Film Friday’s

Morning ya’ll! and happy MOvember! November is Prostate Cancer awareness month, as you may have noticed, many men are sporting their Moustaches to create conversations about a subject that may be thought of as “taboo”. But really, prostate cancer will affect 1 in 7 men. So once you’re finished viewing these sweet vid’s, go donate some dough to a friend who is supporting the cause! Don’t know any one? well then follow this link and make a donation, all donations go towards Prostate Cancer research and men’s mental health, and are tax deducable!

So Here we go! Its been a few since I’ve given you all some fodder to drift and dream away on a Friday afternoon; As I’ve said many times here on FH “Life sometimes gets in the way”. But don’t fret! We’ve got some sweet sweet fish porn to satisfy your filthy minds… So without delay, lets’ kick it off with 2 funky vid’s, crank the tunes, Brah!

We’ll start off with a little appetizer… literally. This film is all about sipping dries, and there’s some great footage of that on display; The title says it all! This one’s a link so you’ll have to follow. Bon appétit bien sûr!

I’ve seen this guy on a few different vids here and there. The guy spends his summers in Alberta, and winters in New Zealand…What a life!

I’ve never had the chance to cast to Char, but its definitely on the bucket list. The scenery, fish, and tunes in this vid are great! BAaaaaaaaam; Green Eggs and Haaaaaaaaaaam! BAM!

We all love the sappy stuff…mmmm, maybe not, but this is something worth cuddling up to

Skating dries for Steelhead would be a dream come true for 100% of anglers…one day…one day. Until then, we can only watch this pretty sweet vid
Skate

Last one for the day is a video that REALLY opened my eyes as to how fish in a pool react when another fish in that same pool is hooked, fought, and released. I have to say, I always thought hooking a fish would spook the rest of them in the pool…apparently not! They just don’t seem to care.
Have a stellar weekend & tight lines (if yo’re lucky enough to get them;))

Frowning weather – All smiles

This past weekend  I was lucky enough to spend the day on the water teaching/introducing this hobby…passion we call fly fishing to Stewart, a great guy from Montreal who was cashing in on his B-day present form his brother….a day trip with me to a river that shall remain nameless…Let’s just call it the AlmonS.

The weather for the last day of the season in up-state NY was dismal, rainy, often times pouring and a measly 8 degrees C, but we were all smiles for most of the day!

Nymphs were the order of the day, with a fish or two being lost on a streamer (Grey Ghost).

Stew was tied up at first with a golden Stone and my good friend the Lafontaine Caddis emerger, he brought 1 Rainbow, and 1 Brown to hand, both around 8″, his first fish on the fly! way to go Stew!.

After pulling in numerous caddis cases with the bright, almost fluorescent green larvae still inside I put on an heavy October Caddis nymph and trailed it with a bright green caddis larvae pattern…And that’s when the magic happened…first a gorgeous 12″ Rainbow, and this Slab of a Brown

Beautiful Fall colours on an 16″ Brown

Way to go Stew!
…though next we’ll have to work on your fish holding technique 😉

So basically, that’s it for the season! I’m going to try my best to get to Ontario in the next few weeks to chase some Steelhead, fingers crossed!

Tight Lines!
