Dreaming of Warm Summer Days--Video

When I started this video it was 22 degrees at the Carp Lodge.  It was stark and beautiful.  When it is cold like that I tie flies and dream of warm summer days fishing for carp on my river.

There are five takes in this short video.  Watch it in HD and on a full screen so you can see the fish.  The first fish isn't visible until I set the hook but the others are.  You will see three of them turn to the fly; it's very cool!

Three New Carp on the Fly Videos

Katy and I were at the Carp Lodge for a few days last week.  It was 22 degrees; everything was covered in hoarfrost.  It was stark and beautiful.  

I'm working on three new videos.  The first one is "Dreaming of Warm Summer Days".  It will be finished this week.  It is only 2 1/2 minutes long.  It has five takes in it and a cool special effect.  I have had fun putting it together.  

The second one is "The Future is Now".  I have a long way to go on this one.  I have selected a couple video clips from my accumulated library.  It will have a futuristic special effect in it but I have to get better at using the effect before I can finish this one and I need to select more video.

I have selected 15 video segments from my library for "Lessons from the Carp Lodge--Episode #5".  I'm excited about this one as I have been working on it off and on for months.  "Episode #4" was just published about a month ago so that makes it sound like I was working on "Episode #5" before "Episode #4".  I was working on them at the same time.  "Episode #5--Casting and Fishing with Confidence" will have a lot fishing video in it.  I will write an article for CarpPro magazine in conjunction with producing this video.  

Stay tuned...
