Best fairy wand fishing video any of you will see today.

Guaranteed.

And to foolishly believe I thought I could never top a 30 lb. steelhead swung up with an unweighted fly on a spey rod.

I didn't have a chicken on my back. I have been humbled.



In the list of stupid things that we have seen come and go when it comes to fishing, fishermen (I'm guilty of most), and fish:

-The Polaroid Kill Shot
-The Grip N Grin (start of the digital camera age)
-Grainy videos filed in a vertical position (early cell phones)
-The Underwater shot
-The Admiration Shot - aka Magazine cover shot
-The fisheyed video lense (excrutiating long) panning shot
-The Fly or Centerpin rod over the shoulder shot.

I sincerely hope the "Chicken on the Head/Shoulders" shot takes the fish internet world by storm!

But alas, probably will need to add "Youtuber Attention Ho Video" to the list in the future.

Is that the one where you look down at the fish lol? If so, yeah, that was a BAD one.

underwater camera shots and the fish eye are a huge pet peeve of mine. I miss the old days of Bill Dance and Jerry Mckinnins and the Fishin Hole. Straight forward fish catchin action!!

I raised lots of chickens when I was a teenager. The notion of taking one fishing with me never crossed my mind. Am I to assume I missed out on something?

And did Paker really catch a 30 pound steelhead on a fly (an unweighted one no less) on a Spey rod? Why would Paker do that? He doesn't know how to fly fish. Or fish for that matter, without a guide.

That is nothing.

Catching a steelhead with April V on your back...........now that's something.

Congrats Stam.
