Ron, it was my pleasure. He always seems so relaxed when fishing, far from the competitive world of noise and selfpromoting.

Luke always posts nice videos like this. He makes some very nice cane rods as well, had the pleasure of casting one back in April.

I never understood the get-up but, to each their own!

Your statement resonates with me. Noise and self-promotion. I found the video excellent in that, aside from the fishing, there was no trendy music or hype. This was as relaxing and engaging a video as Davie McPhail’s tying videos. This also brings up another topic of discussion for me, but will make a separate post.

Actually from the fish's perspective, he blends in well if it is a cloudy day, with the cobble bank and as a tree trunk. I have found any natural color seems to be fine. Blaze orange...not so much.
Many a day, early morning and evenings, were logic beats out the urges to fish, but without the blaze orange would be suicide! In Missouri, we have the spring turkey season and then the deer seasons in fall! Even my kayak if of orange base colors.....
"Don't leave home without it..."

And yes.... thanks for the clip, demonstrating a great day on the waters!

Being from NE Oregon, I understand that completely. Sometimes while hunting I felt like Bambi running from the fire.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Back in 2016, Iexchanged a couple e-mails with Luke Bannister regarding North Country Spiders and he sent me a few pics of his "chewed up Spiders" used in the video and then tied a few heavily hackled spiders kinda like his.

Spent a lovely day with Luke on Dartmoor with the Wild Trout Trust. He's a great guy and wonderful rod builder, that reminds me I own his a few flies and a rod order!
