A must see for every angler.. An amazing piece with a ton of insight. Watch the whole 47 minutes, you will not be disappointed, and it will remind you of times, streams, and fish of your past..

It is a truley wonderful video that is the companion to Prosek's even better book by the same title.

Wow, thanks!

I've been in awe of Prosek since reading the first few pages of "Early Love and Brook Trout".
He had more wisdom as a college student than most of us old farts will ever achieve.


I don't know whether to be amused or shocked to see them buying Green Giant Nibblets for bait (did ol' Isaak really do it this a' way?)

My favorite is Sir John Swire's observation about the "pity" of modern fishermen starting out catching big fish, and how much better it is to start small, and slowly catch bigger and bigger fish as your skill grows.
