Trout Unlimited and Hank Patterson, the funny man of fly fishing, search for the rarest of trout in this hilarious video.
Trout Unlimited and Hank Patterson team together in this preview as they try to solve the mystery of the existence of the CuttyRainBrown trout in American waters. It is an exciting and often hilarious voyage with some yoga thrown in.
I expect this will not bring fly fishing as much publicity as the 1993 movie A River Runs Through It, but it is still going to be popular with fans of Hank Patterson and his angling antics. There could maybe be an Oscar nomination in 2017 for those over-the-top performances and high drama.
This funny video also serves a secondary purpose by promoting the work of Trout Unlimited and their mandate to protect cold-water fisheries as a voice for fly fishing enthusiasts in both the U.S. and Canada. Using humor and getting Hank’s support is a great way to get the message out to a wider audience.
