Video: “Just Fishing”

You know, between the Friday Film festival and the many videos we post on other days of the week, we see pretty much all that the world of fly-fishing film- and video-making has to offer. And I gotta say, this is one of my favorites of all time. Shot by Captain Quinn and the Adventurers, a group of guys based in British Columbia, “Just Fishing” combines all the best things about the fly-fishing genre: great action, compelling characters, a sense of humor, and an important message. The best part is that, in typical Canadian fashion, it’s very low-key and unassuming. It doesn’t beat you over the head in any way (with music, “extreme”-ness, its message, etc.). It simply tries to capture how fly-fishing connects people to the environment and to each other. Trust me, these are 18 minutes well worth your attention. And where else are you going to see shirtless men in waders performing aquatic ballet?
