Here’s a thought-provoking trailer for a new video called CO2LD WATERS, from Conservation Hawks. It was shot on O’Dell Creek near Ennis, Montana and features several big-hitters in the fly-fishing world—including Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard, Vice President of Orvis Rod & Tackle Steve Hemkens, renowned fly-shop owner Craig Mathews, and photographer Tim Romano—discussing the challenges posed by climate change. There’s a lot of straight talk here, and perhaps the most chilling moment is when Romano paraphrases Norman Maclean:
Poets talk about “spots of time,” but it is really fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment. No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone.
The full-length version of CO2LD WATERS will be part of the 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour.
