In a break from the wondrous vistas, submerged wading boots, nasty beards, and ginormous fish that characterize most fly fishing films, “Fly Tying is Relaxing” reveals the sickening underbelly of the guiding profession. Falcon’s Ledge Lodge‘s fly fishing guides Jeff Lindstrom and Bryan Eldredge enjoy tying flies after a long day on the water. It’s usually very relaxing, but as this educational video demonstrates, even the most tranquil of activities can turn violent. Head Guide and filmmaker Spencer Higa captured the Jeff’s rude provocation and Bryan’s totally justified, if brutal, response.
