Today, I’m proud to announce the launch of Troutbitten videos, in collaboration with Wilds Media.
** NOTE ** Video appears at the end of this short article.
Future Troutbitten videos will cover techniques, gear and many of the things we love about fly fishing. We’ll dig deep into tactics, detailing not just the standard 100-level stuff, but the kind of things a seasoned angler is ready for.
“The river gives you what you need. The river gives you what you earn.”
This video launch is the culmination of Troutbitten’s growth, starting from its humble beginnings as a fishing blog in 2014. At the same time, this video stands at the outset of what lies ahead, with the doors of possibility wide open and the independence to move in any direction.
I’m in a new house and a new neighborhood. We have a new dog, and back in February I bought a new 4Runner. A book deal is in the works, and I’ve developed more relationships with some of the leading companies in our industry. Throughout a tumultuous year, Troutbitten has continued the steady, organic growth that has given it a buzz in the fly fishing world.
Troutbitten (and fishing, it seems) is pandemic proof. And I’m enormously thankful for your support. I’m grateful for the donations, for the Troutbitten Shop purchases and for the kind emails about how Troutbitten has benefited your life.
I’m thankful for my guided guests. You fish hard. And in a year where seemingly everything was falling apart, I’ll still finish 2020 with over a hundred guided days on the water. Thank you.
Thanks also to Josh Darling of Wilds Media. Josh had the vision to start this video endeavor with me. And he’s the perfect partner, with the eyes, the heart and the courage to do things a little differently. Josh and I are looking forward to producing these videos as much as we hope you’re looking forward to watching them.
So here’s our first video, The River Doesn’t Owe You Anything. We hope you’ll enjoy it. Then share it with someone who’s as fishy as you are.
** Be sure to select HD 1080p for best quality. (Find the small gear icon.) **
Fish hard, friends.
Enjoy the day.
