Blog http://www.theweeklyfly.com/Blog/ The Weekly Fly Blog en-US http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss Are you ready for a FUN PACK! <p>A what? A fun pack. Its the first try at a name. I thought about using action pack but that just didn't seem appropriate. What is it? Well because paypal fees (I love paypal by the way) make pricing videos at less than $2.99 not very tenable, I decided to package several together and sell the HD videos that way. This first one is for June and has 8 HD scuds, nymphs, and emergers. You get a $24 value for just $10. That's pretty near 60% off the list price. So take a look at the patterns below and if even half of them look interesting, its a deal.

I've written about it before and I just can't say enough how much I admire the job they are doing. ( I even plunked down a few precious bucks to advertise with them a few months ago). Todd's latest work is a two part short on a mother-daughter teem of steelhead outfitters in B.C. The imagery is beautiful as always but what I really like is the fact that its what someone once referred to as "a good story well told". Take a look below at both parts and be sure to subscribe to <a href="http://www.catchmagazine.net/">Catch Magazine</a> for mouth watering fly fishing goodness.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I've put up a new page called<a href="http://www.theweeklyfly.com/2011/04/04/reels"> REELS</a> (check the tabs at the top of the page on the right). I have and will continue to post samples of Reel Action projects and my own work. I've got five films up now and I'll add more as I go including, probably, the 5-6 promotional videos we did for outfitters in Argentina in 2009.</p> <p>Take a look and enjoy.</p> <p>Cheers.</p><div class="item_footer"><p><small><a href="http://www.theweeklyfly.com/Blog/2011/04/05/sample-reels">Original post</a> blogged on <a href="http://b2evolution.net/">b2evolution</a>.</small></p></div> http://www.theweeklyfly.com/Blog/2011/04/05/sample-reels Pheeeww. Glad that's done. <p>Since the fall of 2005, I've been working towards my MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking. Its where I learned to do this fly tying video stuff. In the meantime, I've started a business, my wife and I have had two kids, filmed from the arctic to Tierra Del Fuego, and had a lot of other fun adventures too. The degree requires a shortish thesis paper and a thesis film. Attached below is my thesis film. Its as much about the separation between the camera and subject as about the futility of defining what draws us to fly fishing. Its in HD on vimeo if you click through or expand to full screen.<br /> Cheers.</p> <p><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/21580651?portrait=0" width="549" height="309" frameborder="0"></iframe></p><div class="item_footer"><p><small><a href="http://www.theweeklyfly.com/Blog/2011/03/28/pheeeww-glad-that-s-done">Original post</a> blogged on <a href="http://b2evolution.net/">b2evolution</a>.</small></p></div> http://www.theweeklyfly.com/Blog/2011/03/28/pheeeww-glad-that-s-done Streamflies discount flies <p>Talked to Phillip Wolfmueller the other day and I'm finally getting a chance to enter a new post.
