As the snow flies here at the Home Office, the closest we’ll come to fly fishing this weekend is watching some of the great video available online. This three-pack of YouTube videos runs the gamut from the contemplative life of Izaak Walton to the raw power of a violent tarpon strike. Since it’s a work day, we’ll run them in order of shortest to longest. You may want to save James Prosek’s 47-minute “The Complete Angler” for the weekend.
Next up is another shorty—put together by Capt. Nick Angelo, a saltwater guide out of Tampa—and it offers really exciting footage of tarpon “eats,” a few jumps, and some slight equipment trouble.
Finally, here’s the entire film documenting James Prosek’s travels in the footsteps of Izaak Walton, focusing on The Compleat Angler.
