Here's a vid from my outing yesterday on one of my favorite creeks. It's a perfect creek for my 2wt rod, Awesome little rod that Steeldrifter built, I'm still getting the hang of editing but all the boring stuff is gone so it's just fish. It was a miserable rainy day but still lots of fun.

Good video montage.  I tend to get "dizzy" with all the movement of a head mount.  These videos looked like something between a head mount and a chest mount.  I like seeing the hook sets.

This was the chest mount Mike, I've kind of gone away from the head mount. I move too much with the head mount. Most likely because I'm in grizzly bear and black bear country I'm constantly looking around while I'm fishing so it isn't really a good choice.

I saw this guy about 5 min from where I started fishing as well lol.

Looks like a good sized Coyote or a juvenile Wolf.   If it's a Wolf, you might be lucky it wasn't part of a pack, yet.

I believe it was a lone wolf, he was pretty beat up so maybe he was punted from the pack
