REVIEW: VIDEO LIBRARIAN - Hosts Jim and Kelly Watt … demonstrating an obvious love for the sport… In fact their gentle enthusiasm is downright contagious (a friend who watched the program with me had to be nearly hog-tied to a chair by his wife to keep him from lighting out for the local sporting goods store) REVIEW: ON THE WATER - I watched this DVD and went fishing that evening, and after their explanation (the best I’ve seen) of the causes and remedies to the dreaded tailing loop, I had a great outing: no “wind knots”, no tangles, no lost flies… AWARD: The Videographer Award of Excellence , Instructional Category
