THIS CLIP is from the DVD “RISE” (Confluence Films, 79 minutes), yet another cinematographic adventure for fly fishers from Chris Patterson and Jim Klug, the producers of “Drift.” The new DVD travels to the Florida Keys, Argentina, Alaska, New Orleans, Idaho and Venezuela and profiles anglers, guides and icons in their home waters. This clip features René Harrop — known on the Henry’s Fork as the “Trout Hunter” — describing his close connection to one of the most fabled trout streams in North America.
EXCERPT: “I think I was destined to be here and to make my life right here. And that’s the way it’s been. 55 years later I still feel the same excitement, the same surge of energy and the sense of something very special about this place.”
“The truest sense of happiness, of joy, is when we’re where we want to be, and we’re doing what we want to do.”
