Last year I bought a reasonably good tripod for my camera and began to lug it fishing with me on a regular basis. I had dreams of becoming the next great outdoor filmmaker dancing around in my head, I mean, how hard could it be? All you gotta do is just shoot some video of a few fish and a couple high fives and presto---Award winning documentary about the plight of the red finned stickleback in your local ditch/watershed. In reality, filming fishing all summer and fall, and then editing film all winter has given me a whole new respect for those that actually make decent video's and documentaries of outdoor pursuits. I did manage to get some reasonably good video though, and here is my first short from this summer. Hope you enjoy!
