Video: Hugh Falkus’s “Salmo: The Leaper”

After watching the great vintage video by Lee Wulff we posted on Monday, reader Patrick from Dublin sent along links to some other fantastic old footage on YouTube, including the complete Hugh Falkus film “Salmo: The Leaper” (1977). Falkus, a renowned filmmaker and angler, produced “Salmo: The Leaper” as part of a BBC series called “The World About Us.” It’s a fascinating look at the life cycle of Salmo salar, as well as featuring some wonderful angling footage. It’s a great piece of fly-fishing-film history that’s well worth the time.
