New version of Fly Fishing Tips from the Traveling Fly Fisherman features new footage of Gary Lafontaine before ALS (Lou Gerhig's disease) stopped his fishing and doomed him to a wheelchair and more tips from Mike Lawson and Jack Dennis.
Expanded by 50 minutes, the video is chocked full of advice and tips from the dynamic threesome who lectured together for over 13 years at clubs, stores and sport shows. Over a hundred collective years of fly fishing experience went into making this tape!
In 1987 Jack Dennis, Mike Lawson and Gary Lafontaine formed The Traveling Fly Fisherman. Each were well-known fly fishermen with books, magazine articles, videos and TV shows to their credit. When they presented as a group, their diverse skills and individual styles made for some exciting fly fishing programs and over the years they forges a lifelong bond of friendship with their love of the sport. For over 13 years The Traveling Fly Fisherman have taught and entertained fly fishermen at seminars and sport shows in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.
In 1999 Gary Lafontaine was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). The group continued to give programs in spite of Gary's debilitating disease. Gary's courage and determination to overcome ALS was an inspiration for all that attended the seminars. In January 2002, Gary succumbed to the dreaded disease, but not without a battle...this DVD is dedicated to that spirit.
The first part of the DVD shows tips form the early days of the group. The second part contains newer instruction and tips including the last time Gary was on film.
This tape serves as a testament to all the fun and excitement that was The Traveling Fly Fisherman. Two hours of solid fly fish instruction from the legends of fly fishing.
