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.
