Default fly fishing films!

hey guys! i wanted to pick an ear about films. Ive been doing some short videos for about 6 months now just on my own and its always been my goal to shoot a full length. I live in South carolina. im about 3 hours away from charleston, which is where i spend the summer redfishing in the marsh, and i live about 3 hours away from the app. mountain range and some excellent carolina trout. I wanted to know what you guys like to see in a fly fishing film. what interests you, what gets you hooked, what elements of a film get you pumped to get out and fish? let me know! thanks A LOT!
-Addi

I like to see information on how it's done for the whatever species they are shooting. I hate the ones where it's just a bunch of some guy catching fish followed by the Al Lindner pose. A short video for YouTube where that's done is OK, but a 30 minute show or a two hour DVD is another story.

Welcome to forum.

agreed, i prefer more of a documentary style film. Theres alot more to fly fishing than just catching fish in my opinion, I like capturing it through all the little details and all the little things that i like about the adventure.

I think flyfishing filmmakers often forget that most flyfishers are also very interested in all aspects of the sport, including the gear used. Maybe there's a problem with displaying name brands etc? Anyway I like to see what other flyfishers are using.

Welcome to forum.
I couldn't agree more. A few months ago I picked up a copy of Drift. While it was an entertaining documentary, there was no instructional aspect to the movie. Great cinematography, but it really was just a documentary.

I like the Soul Fish videos however, I'd sure like to know what type of gear they're using. I often stop the video to see if I can ID the rod, reel, weight, type fly, etc. There are plenty of how-to-fly-fish videos but we just need some intended for mid to experienced fly fisher people.

so can i pose as a general thought, the details that entail catching the fish from the gear used to the tactic and techniques used? I would think that would help alot. what else do you guys think?

I'll have to say that I'm in the other camp in that I really don't want much in the way of instruction. If I want instruction, I'll read a book or magazine, hire a guide or learn by trial/error. I'd rather see amazing cinematography of the beautiful places I'll probably not visit enough times in my life. As far as what I like, I enjoy shots that make me go "WOW!". To go into more detail, I'm always amazed at shots that RA Beattie and the Felt Soul guys get with the dry fly takes. Seeing a trout, close-up, size up a fly in slow motion and either take it or refuse it is cinematic gold. I can never get enough of those shots. I know it's just a guy laying still on the bank and a guy casting near him, where fish are likely holding, but it's a view most of us don't get to see to often, in that close up manner. Also, I think a light hearted approach, but not goofy, makes for enjoyable entertainment. In any movie, fly fishing or not, I have to be able to connect to the people on film or I "change the channel", so to speak.
