It was embarrassing on a few occasions, when both of my arms started bleeding profusely in public; painful at times, to the point of waking me up in the middle of the night; and inconvenient during the last stages of the flies’ development, when I had to tape plastic containers to my arms to make sure that I will not lose the emerging larvae. But other than those minor discomforts it was really not a big deal. Perhaps my opinion would have been different had the bot flies decided to develop in my eyelids, but I actually grew to like my little guests, and watched their growth with the same mix of pleasure and apprehension as when I watch the development of any other interesting organism under my care. Having two bot fly larvae embedded in my skin have also made me ponder once again the perplexing element of the human psyche that makes us abhor parasites but revere predators. Why is it that an animal that is actively trying to kill us, such as a lion, gets more respect than one that is only trying to nibble on us a little, without causing much harm? I strongly suspect that it has to do with our genetically encoded sense of “fairness” – we perceive parasites as sneaky and underhanded, whereas predators attack us head-on and thus expose themselves to our retaliation. They are brave, or so we think. This, of course, is a very naive and anthropomorphic interpretation of nature. A lion is no “braver” than a bot fly, who has to skillfully hunt mosquitos to assure the dispersal of her eggs and risk more dangers than a lion, a top predator with no natural enemies. Most importantly, to a bot fly we, humans, are a renewable resource – it is in the bot fly’s best interest that we live a very long life and thus can be “reused” – hence the minimum amount of suffering that this species causes. To a lion we are nothing more than a one-time meal. But we should not judge either species for their actions – there is no “good” or “bad” in nature – nature is amoral. I am saying this to prepare you for a short video that I made about my experience of raising a bot fly. I don’t want you to think that it is “creepy” or “weird”. It is simply a documentation of an interesting organism, who happens to develop in the skin of large mammals. But please be forewarned that this video includes a few sequences that some viewers may find disturbing. If you don’t want to have nightmares about things living inside you (which they already do, by the way), please don’t watch it. But if you are prepared to be open-minded and appreciate God’s wonderful creations in all their amazing glory, enjoy the show! Visit http://thesmallermajority.com to learn more.

    • A DELIBERATE LIFE: Film Trailer

      NEWLY RELEASED Full-Length Film: https://vimeo.com/54169719 A Deliberate Life There comes a time in all of our lives when we let ourselves dream about living life on our own terms. When we wrestle with the decision to take a step into traffic, follow our passions and live deliberately - or simply let another day, and daydream, pass. In the end, it doesn’t matter if we make the decision of our own accord, or life makes it for us. It’s where our heart and soul are that matter. For some, the result is a closer alignment between vocation and avocation, for some it’s a reprioritization of what’s important in life, for some it’s the very real difference between life and death. Set primarily against the diverse, rugged and breathtaking landscape of Idaho and Oregon, A Deliberate Life explores the stories of five unlikely friends who share the same love of fly fishing and the outdoors and their choice to lead a life according to their passions.

        Each year I film fly fishing the inshore waters of the northeastern U.S. and produce a "movie" of the results. This is the full and final version of the Surf & Inshore Fly Fishing project covering the full year 2012. As mentioned in the teaser, a season spent chasing these fish is only a series of events with no plot or story, but when you put these seasons together, year after year, the story becomes more clear; it's the story of your life, and how you've decided to live it. A special thanks to those who were supportive throughout the year, particularly: MdeB, CRL & GGL Greg Snow - Snowfly Charter Ryan Sansoucy - Hush Fly Fishing RISE Fly Fishing CO.

              Having fished likely my last saltwater day in 2011, it was time to do some editing of the massive amount of images collected during the year. This is a first look at some of the footage from the 2011 season. There is a ton more to go through and some of the footage from the flats of NY&CT, Block Island and Montauk, especially underwater footage, is really interesting. Footage during the year was mostly captured using a Panasonic GH2 (using various hacks) and a GoPro HD Hero. Some bits were shot with a GH1 and a VIOSport POV1.5. Music Credits: H.U.V.A. Network – Something Heavens Extract from the album [ Ephemeris ] Ultimae records www.ultimae.com Available on: www.ultimae.bandcamp.com Please keep an eye out for the full version of Surf & Inshore Fly Fishing 2011 which should be up sometime in February.
