Featured Video: Doc of the Drakes

Doc Of The Drakes, Short from Silver Creek Outfitters on Vimeo.

Here’s a video that is so good—moving and beautiful in ways that fly-fishing videos normally aren’t—that I want to feature it on its own, rather than as part of tomorrow’s Film Festival. It’s a story of an eager angler and his dedicated guide working together to overcome obstacles during the famed brown-drake hatch on Idaho’s Silver Creek. One of the entries in the Drake Magazine Five Minutes of Fly Fishing contest, held at the recent International Fly Tackle Dealer Show in New Orleans, this one is definitely worth the five minutes. (Warning: a bit of salty language here.)
