Video: Motivational Fly Fishing?


Here’s an interesting take on the fly-fishing genre by Canadian angler Bren Dacey, in which he pays homage to the dedication and commitment it takes to become a great fly fisherman. He calls the video “The Motivation Behind The Man,” and writes:

This video is for anyone chasing their dream’s regardless of what it might be. I’ve now been fly fishing since the young age of 9. Now seventeen years later, I chase my dream’s with more intensity and desire than ever before. Never quit is what I was taught.

Waddya think? I’ll bet that, for some folks, fly fishing is a way to perhaps escape from the drive for success in other parts of their lives.

  1. Ack. I don’t want someone yelling at me when even watching a fishing video. Add worms, thingamabobbers and backcast water slaps…

  2. Funny video LOL I guess it is not for me. When I am fishing, I am normally quiet and I don’t need someone to tell me what to do. It is my wife’s job! :))

  3. Looks like two kids who passed me on the highway today pulling over with 4 cars in a parking lot, Experience and respect are no longer considered any longer by a lot of the younger “anglers” of today, It is all about a very attainable goal that can be stumbled upon based on knowledge that is already there.

    1. Huh? There was nothing disrespectful in this video. In a time where fly fishing owns 6% of the fishing industries total market share the future of the sport and it’s continued growth and innovation relies on expansion to women and the “youth”. I liked the video, nice work Bren.

  4. I created this video to encourage young anglers to never give up regardless of how hard life becomes, you can always use fly fishing and the outdoors as a peaceful escape. I was taught proper fishing etiquette and manners at the young age of 9 on the Salmon rivers of Nova Scotia. I’m a well respectable angler and have over 17 years of just fly fishing experience and knowledge to share. Thanks everyone for the positive feedback and I will continue to create and share my videos with the world because fly fishing is what I was born to do. I will never stop exploring, wandering and my cameras will accompany my ever foot step. Tight lines everyone ! – Bren Dacey
