Last Saturday night’s 2nd Annual Orvis Film Fest—which capped off the Down the Hatch Fishing Festival in Missoula, Montana—closed with this video, which brought down the house. The video follows the trials and travails of Peter Christensen as he endures an epic streak of bad luck while fishing in New Zealand with the Nylinder brothers, Rolf and Harald. To make things worse, the Nylinders hook and land gorgeous fish after gorgeous fish, while Peter struggles. At least Rolf and Harald are sympathetic and compassionate. . .which just might make things worse.
It’s ten minutes long, but trust me: you want to watch the whole thing.
