Hank Patterson's List of Shots

Ah, Hank Patterson. The guy who says what the rest of us are thinking.

Not to belittle the fly-fishing film world—I just went to this year’s version of the Fly Fishing Film Tour and enjoyed every minute of it.

The all important list of shots

But, as Hank has adeptly noted in the trailer to his video, “How to make a Fly Fishing Film Tour Film,” some of the offerings tend to be a bit … formulaic. Drone shots. Product placement. Slow motion. Gratuitous fish porn. You get the idea.

This is good for a giggle. Enjoy.
