Video: Big Browns and Good Tips in “The Bank,” Episode 2


Written by: Phil Monahan


Here’s the second episode of the great new series “The Bank,” from our friends Dave and Amelia Jensen, of Jensen Fly Fishing. (We posted Episode 1 last week.) In this video, they are at the peak of drought in Alberta. The flows are low and the weather hot. The water is warm and the rainbows and browns have abandoned the long, deep, slow glides and pools, seeking oxygen mixed into the riffled water at the top of runs. The browns simply glow as olive smudges, so obvious from even 40 meters away. The angler, Brian, and Dave communicate as he lines up behind a nice brown trout and does a good job of hooking up. But Brian forgets two important rules: don’t turn your back on a fish while fighting it, and make sure you do what’s needed to get it around or past rocks.
