There are just some things you can’t feel and experience from the comfort of your warm home


Don’t fish? Don’t like fishing? Don’t care about fishing? No worries. This short film is so much bigger than that.

…It’s easy to stay inside when the weather isn’t pleasant.  Sometimes convincing yourself to get out is the hardest part. And once you’re out, it’d easy to find an excuse to quit. But there are just some things you can’t see from the inside of your house. Some things you can’t feel and experience from the comfort of your warm home. Things your high definition TV can’t give justice to.

The woods are silent. And the water abandoned by the crowds who surrender to the cold. You fully appreciate the stream you fish, when you see it cycle through all its seasons. The dense thick green canopy is gone. And the stream runs crisp clean and bright. The sun touches water it only reaches a few month a year.

The pain of frozen extremities fades fast when you hook that first fish. And all of the sudden, it all seems worth it. You forget about all of your problems. You forget about the ice in your guides. The frozen hands. The problems at home. Troubles at work. It all fades.

At the end of a cold day of fishing you end up much more thankful than when began. Thankful for the motivation to get up and get out.  Thankful for the lessons of the day.  Thankful for the fish you may have been blessed with. And thankful to return home to the things outside of fishing.”

  2. This guy’s yin and yang are fully aligned. I loved the sounds along with everything else in this video.

  3. A very good, and much needed reminder David. After weeks of snow and big rain here, today looks like it has potential for some sunshine. It will be a good day for a walk :)

  4. Only avid fishermen can understand the beauty of freezing your buns off to enjoy nature like this.

  5. Reblogged this on Views from the Hill.

  6. It definitely broadens one’s perspective. I may not be a fisherman, but I delight in the beauty of his words and video..

  7. Thanks for sharing this. Doing is much better than watching, especially when you got out of the house when others would not.
