Top Video Hatches of 2011
As 2011 comes to a close, the staff here at MidCurrent offers up its choices for the the top “Video Hatches” of the year.
- “Father and Son” – William J. Meyer made this touching video about his father before he passed away. A reminder that the relationships formed through fly-fishing are just as important as the fish caught.
- “A Tangled Tale” – Not the typical fly fishing video, “A Tangled Tale” is a sand animation tale that forms at the confluence of art and fly fishing.
- “Bulls on Top” – David Magnum’s footage of explosive feeding that defies common expectations of redfish behavior.
