Last year, our old pal Rolf Nylinder released this gorgeous film, which is a beautiful story about exploring his home waters in search of trout. A stay-at-home dad, Rolf no longer has the luxury of traveling to the far corners of the world in search of his beloved dry-fly quarry, so he focuses instead on a humble creek that he can fish at naptime. What he finds is quite remarkable, and he shares a bit of cool stream knowledge along the way.

Fantastic video and well produced.
Very enjoyable -Thanks
Wait a minute – is this the Rolfe who formerly went nuts in his films – laughing screaming and hugging everything in sight whenever he landed a nice fish? If so, something turned down the rheostat. If he has a second kid, he’ll be reciting the LoveSong of J Alfred Prufrock between the take and his strike.
All kidding aside – beautifully filmed. You’re not a bad stick either!
The discovery of trout in a small stream is always a remarkable experience. Better yet, share it with a special fishing partner.
The fish scenes were captivating. But, for me, the shot of the water ousel swimming under water was a first. On many occasions I’ve watched them dive under the water and surface a few feet away. Now I know a little about their behavior below the surface.
Thanks for sharing this video.
