In this Video of the Week, we catch up with Waist Deep Media and Ethan Parsons in their newest film about Ethan and his love for life and fly fishing. Ethan no longer has use of his legs, he has a condition called Chiari Malformation where the brain is too big for his skull and bulges down to the spinal cord blocking the use of his legs. While there is surgery to reverse the actions it’s a very tedious and multistep surgery that is highly invasive. Ethan states “you can look at it two different ways, either in a positive way or a negative way and I really feel like fly fishing has saved me and kept me going in life.” Extended Play is about more than just fishing, it’s about a tale of the human spirit and the power of positivity. So sit down and enjoy Ethan’s amazing story and his insatiable desire to look for the positive in every aspect of life. Here’s to you, Ethan.
We can’t wait to see where Ethan ends up next! Feel free to follow his adventures here: @hellbentfishing208
