Rich Landers profiles videographer Simon Perkins for the Spokesman-Review, and quotes Perkins on the filming of “Sipping Dry” and on the draw of the Mighty Mo and the raw emotion its dry-fly fishing elicits.  “The guides he featured showed plenty of emotion as they tell it like it is, much of it so raw it had to be dumped in the film-editing trash bin.  ‘She’s a cruel mistress,’ one guide says in a clip that made the film. ‘No shortage of stories about getting my balls kicked on the Mo.'”
