In this 16-minute fly fishing video, a couple of fishing buddies spent five months filming and fishing for big brown trout in central Oregon. Of course, they hook into some nice browns. The camera work is pretty good, the soundtrack not bad at all, and the fish are big — a perfect combination for kicking back and watching the whole thing with a cup of coffee or a sandwich. In fact, the production quality is what sets this video apart from so many others. Created by Joe Cima and Seth Webb from Mountain Made Media, the guys got a lot of fantastic footage — though they admit they missed videoing a lot of great fish along the way.

One of the coolest techniques I noticed was a time-lapse bit of video while fishing one hole on a river. It’s easy to do with a GoPro or most newer waterproof cameras, but I never considered how great it might work on a river while fishing. I know I’ll be trying to replicate the technique soon. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was some underwater release shots.

Oh, and one more thing, the brown at the end — wow, just wow.

Disclosure: Reviews and Gear Links:

In addition to Man Makes Fire buying gear for reviews and guides, gear manufacturers occasionally ship review units to Man Makes Fire. If we like it, we spend some quality time with the gear and review it, noting if it was provided to Man Makes Fire. After the review, we return it, give it away, or work on longer-term review follow-ups when applicable to reader interest.

We do not accept any gear in exchange for coverage. If we do not truly appreciate the gear, we don't write about it at all -- bad gear will fade into obscurity on its own if everyone ignores it. In addition, we focus on gear from reputable companies, reputable brands, and reputable retailers we trust.

The gear links on Man Makes Fire are focused on what we are willing to recommend to our own family and friends. Many of our specific gear links connect to industry-standard affiliate advertising programs. When you buy something using the retail links in our guides and reviews, we may earn a small affiliate commission that helps pay for our work.

Basically, we deliver the advice and insight you need, you get the gear you want, and then everyone wins. Pretty straightforward.
