This is a three video series (best I can tell) likely filmed in the 90s.  It's not a video that shows tons of action or trout screaming line off of a spool.  However, this series is probably the most well put together series I've ever seen on how fish relate to current, why they choose their lies, and how they maintain position in fast water.  The series also shows a ton on how trout are able to see so well (crazy ability to track differently with each eye and how light refraction at the surface works), their cone of vision, etc.  It's a super interesting series where the filmmaker takes TONS of underwater footage and breaks it down using slow motion.  Again, this isn't a Iaconelli video with tons of yelling and celebration, but in terms of useful information that relates to fishing in current, these are sensational.  Even if you don't care about trout or fly fishing, this series has TONS of useful information about any river or stream ecosystem.

I got the DVD's many years ago as a Christmas present.  I thought they were fascinating and I learned quite a bit from them.  I often fly fish for trout.  I need to pull them out and rewatch.

Just the amount of information, analysis, and underwater footage are incredible. Even for guys who don't fish for trout, the info on holds and hydrodynamics apply to almost any species.  This is a killer DVD set!

Thanks for posting this.  As an avid trout fisherman, the info in these videos is extremely valuable.

Thanks, fellas.  I think the information about how current works and feeding windows is super helpful for understanding any species that lives in current.  Also, the footage showing fish - big fish - huddled under boulders is really interesting.  Just think of how much water we've all passed over because it was too shallow, or because we couldn't see either fish, or quality holds.  Its 2+ hours of video, but it was really eye opening for me. 

 

Also, I'm considering tieing up some vegetation flies...

Thanks for sharing! That was extremely fascinating. Especially sight fishing, understanding that currents provide conveyer belts of food sources to fish, where they want to expend as little energy as possible in one spot, is critical.  I remind myself lately to think about placing the presentation in that particular belt, rather than hastily throwing the flies directly at the fish. 

 

Just in time for my San Juan River fly fishing trip this weekend. Quality waters here I come!

Enjoy it, and hopefully you can beat the crowds.  This should be a stellar year with the snow cap you guys have out west. Should be a great turnaround from last year. 

 

The info on dominance and lies is really interesting, too, especially if you consider that larger trout eat less frequently, but more efficiently.  Also, how cool is the info on biomechanics and essentially "gliding" in current?

A couple years ago I dived in a clear river with trout. I plan on filming trout underwater in a future vacation along with other freshwater fish.

@ Turkey sandwich - thx for posting that.   Those videos confirmed to me a lot of stuff I was doing was right.  It also showed me a few things I should change/try for better results.

 

Even though it focus mainly on fly fishing, it will help with any presentation.
