Let me preface this post by finally stating that any and all reviews of gear, DVD's or websites are purely my humble opinion and you may not have the same experience as my stated opinion. I am not paid or supported in any fashion by those items that are reviewed and this allows me to give my complete and unbiased feedback.
That being said,this is the second of Aaron Jasper's nymphing technique DVD's. I don't know about you but I am able to learn things faster and more thoroughly when I can see them being performed. Don't get me wrong, I love a good book however, being able to watch something and pause, rewind and watch again helps. One thing that I like about the video is the simple format, as you are walked through different scenarios. Mr. Jasper explains methods with a matter of factness that gets the point across and he does this without any confusion. I was introduced to this method of fishing less than a year ago and have tons to learn. This video will benefit a novice and seasoned angler alike.
Also, throughout the DVD, Mr. Jasper's love of fishing is clearly on display. To me, he seemed to get really jazzed over every fish he landed regardless of the size and that's exactly how I feel every time I am fortunate enough to land a fish. I also got a kick out of the spots that showed him falling in the water as he moved around or attempted to move with a hooked fish. This makes you realize that, no matter how good you are or how long you have fished, things like this happen to all of us. Each of the various scenarios in this video are played out on the water. It was really beneficial to see how he fished as his voice over explained what was going on in the segment.
This video is almost 4 hrs long and there is something for everyone. I picked up my copy through Trout Predator Online's website. I know they just sold out of the original order of videos but I hear that they will be receiving more next week.
