I’ve been lucky to fish The Test and The River Itchen
and this film shows the true beauty of fishing a chalk stream..
A must for every angler
So beautiful and charming
I am a French angler, fond of fly fishing and Chalk is one of the best movies about fly fishing I’ve ever seen. Everything is interesting, the colours are bright and amazingly full of nature, with a dash of English humor at the end ! This film gives me a very strong desire to go and visit the country and fly fish on those beautiful chalkstreams.
That warm feeling that when you look out on a winters day you know you’ll be back and will have forgotten the cold easterly, the blanks. the many caught trees and bank vegetation, the thrown flies, the hours trying to tie on a tiny F-fly ….. and the cost! But who cares the excitement will be back, I will have bought and tied flies and there will be that new rod ….. I really will be better equipped with a 10′ #4!
Loads of history, really instructive and great footage, well done!
This a superb film that has the right balance between the history/art of fly fishing, great video footage and good speakers; who speak passionately. Great promotion for fly fishing and as mentioned above Inspiring.
