The Green Drake

Recommended Posts

Good video. biggrin.png

 

A bit "dramatic" ... intensity on his face like he was the first person to ever tie a fly that way. dry.png

 

BUT ... How DARE he bring that big fish in without "putting it on the reel"? According to many, that can't be done !!! ohmy.png

 

Loved the videography on the stream, though ... I LOT!

The producers of this film, Carpe Diem have dozens of very well made fly fishing shorts on You tube. Does anyone out there know anything about them? Their films seem to be made in Europe. Are they a retailer, the European version of Orvis? I did a quick google search and there is a Carpe Diem fly fishing based in Virginia but I don't believe they are the same organization. I subscribe to the you-tube channel but I can't find anything about them on it either. Their films are very well done and I am curious about who they are.

 

Thanks all!
