Trust me on this. Take two minutes and thirty seconds to watch this trailer . . .

 

I get chills every time I view that. And I’m flat out excited to be part of the next screening of this film. On Friday, January 18, 2019 at the State Theatre in State College, Pennsylvania, Live the Stream is showing at 6:00 and 9:00 pm. The evening is a celebration of Joe Humphreys’ 90th Birthday. (Full details below.)

From the Directors

Live The Stream is an intimate portrayal of Pennsylvania’s fly fishing legend, Joe Humphreys, a man who was born to fish, lives to teach, and strives to pass on a respect for our waters.

This beautiful documentary follows fly fishing legend, Joe Humphreys for one year both on and off the water as he shares the sport he loves with others. From teaching youth to helping Veterans, going after personal records, and spearheading a conservation dream – this intimate portrayal is a tribute to the power of positive influence, the richness of family and friendships, and Joe’s invitation to everyone to step into his fountains of youth, his streams.

Troutbitten

Friends and Troutbitten regulars know how much I credit Joe Humphreys for my own deep dive into fly fishing. In fact, the name for this company, Troutbitten, comes from Humphreys’ book, Trout Tactics.

 

 

“Clyde new I was a trout-bitten kid, obsessed with fishing, and that I fished every day. He’d watch me and give a knowing nod and smile as I pedalled by on my bicycle, fly rod across the handle bars, fly box and peanut-butter sandwiches piled in the wire basket.” — Joe Humphreys, Trout Tactics

 

So this film is one I’ve been waiting for. And if you love fly fishing, if you love finding wild trout between the watery woods and mountains, Joe is your guy. I’m so looking forward to watching this film from directors Lucas and Meigan Bell. And I hope to see you there.

Hi. I’m a father of two young boys, a husband, author, fly fishing guide and a musician. I fish for wild brown trout in the cool limestone waters of Central Pennsylvania year round. This is my home, and I love it. Friends. Family. And the river.

Podcasts Begin — Episode 1: This Is Troutbitten

In this inaugural Troutbitten podcast, my friends Bill, Austin, Trevor and Josh join me to discuss how fly fishing for wild trout creates a life on the water.

We consider what it means to fish hard, how hope is the strongest trait of a successful angler, why everything works sometimes, and how fly fishers, all too often, are a little much.

We also talk about the tenets of Troutbitten, or the shared interests and characteristics about fly fishing that bring us together and keep us excited about trout fishing for a lifetime . . .

Night Fishing for Trout –The Wiggle and Hang

Night Fishing for Trout –The Wiggle and Hang

Lifting the rod slightly, I shake the rod tip left and right. Easy, rhythmically, I wiggle the tip and feel the line wave as I see it dance and glow in the dark. The fly shimmies and sends a pattern of waves through the surface and beyond, calling to any trout within who-knows-how-far.

#7. Guiding the Flies: Nine Essential Skills for Tight Line and Euro Nymphing

We overweight to lead the flies, and we underweight to track them. But to guide the flies, we must find the middle ground, with enough weight to control the flies against the effects of the current but not so much that the flies cannot be permitted to drift at the will of that same current.

This may sound like a bit of hocus pocus. But in truth, it’s an intuitive process that becomes natural with trial and error . . .

Night Fishing for Trout — The Bank Flash

Night Fishing for Trout — The Bank Flash

I returned to a tactic that I’d employed on many dark nights where I couldn’t effectively reference the bank. I reached up to my headlamp and flicked on the light for an instant — a half second and no more — before returning back to the black. Then, just like the quick shots of lightning earlier, the lamp showed me the way. The image of the riverbank burned into my brain. Something inside of me calculated the adjustments and converted the images into accuracy with my tools of fly rod, line, leader and fly. It was a little bit of magic . . .

  1. I don’t know Joe being I have never met him, but I know a fellow who has met him. I am told he is just a wonderful man. I have watched numerous times a video on Youtube where he teaches nymph fishing. Men like him are one in a million. I hope I can see this film at some point in the future.

    Best, Sam

  2. I’ve never met him either, but I know the legend. What I did not know was that dude was JACKED as a younger man! Holy crap. He looks like he coulda been a slot receiver, or a centerfielder, or some such. It’s no wonder he’s still a vigorous man, mentally and physically – at 90. He’s a physical marvel.
