die Fische Television (dFTV)

Aimee and I once spent an entire summer living out of our van, gallivanting around the western United States soaking in every bit of its wondrous beauty. But where would they go from there? How could we follow up an experience like that? We found ourselves often bemoaning the fact that “we don’t live near anything that awesome” back in Massachusetts. But the truth is that's a load of BS, and the opportunities for adventure in this country are only as limited as your imagination. After several hundred hours scouring every nook and cranny of the available literature, and many long, good, talks on the phone with soon-to-be new friends, we had an itinerary. Don't expect to see any geotags of these rivers on Instagram, the folks up there keep it pretty close to the chest, but if you make the effort and earn your stripes, I guarantee you’ll be put on a 3+ pound, wild Maine squaretail in no time. The only question is; how the hell are we going to top that?

The tastiest, hand picked videos that inspire not just out fly fishing, but the way we live our lives. Fly fishing, punk music, skate and heavy metal videos as well as straight up inspirational art are all fair game. If you love it, share it. If you hate it, skip it on move on, but please don't moan that this is not a straight up fly fishing channel. This is inspiration not rhetoric. For more, visit us at http://www.diefische.org
