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

The instructors in the video keep it simple while not treating you like you're stupid. The instructors are interesting and keep your attention so you don't zone out. They also don't "overdo" it with too much information. You get just what you need to get started in fly fishing. If you're an experienced fly fisherman then this probably isn't the video for you, but if you're just starting out, like me, this is a great DVD.
