This week we are throwing it WAY back to the previous millennium, a TV series from 1998 that aired on ESPN. The video starts off with some talk about the World Fly Fishing Championships. They discuss strategy and techniques for fishing in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The United States hosted the championships in 1997 as well as 2016. The second half of the video features some streamside fly tying with Jack Dennis, and ends with some results of that fly on a small spring creek.
What I love about this video is being able to see the change of fly fishing over the past 20 years, but also how much has stayed exactly the same. The techniques and motives are still the same 20 years later, showing how timeless this sport truly is.
The video of the week is selected and written by FlyLords team member Conner Grimes (@doublehaulmedia).
