Enjoy.

The Keys Chronicles: Tarpon Season: The Exchange


April 25, 2012, 5:25 pm

BarJack: [On poling platform, back to sun straining against the 12 knot ESE breeze.] Ok, he’s facing away from you.

WindKnot: [Searching for fish shape in the glare.] Away? You sure?

[Recast. Slooow strip. The tarpon materializes as it turns.]

WindKnot: Got some kinda reaction from ‘im… oh, dude, that could be really good dude.

[Strip, wiggle, wiggle, pause… line jumps tight, rod bends, rod straightens, line slides back slack.]

WindKnot: Ugh! F***! F******!

BarJack: WindKnot, WindKnot, WindKnot, WindKnot...

WK: [Pulling in fly line and leader.]  Aaaah, duuude. F***! Alright. Your turn… Guarantee you I popped that 20-pound. I knew I was holding on a little too tight. That was an awesome eat… oh, noooo!

BJ: What?

WK: [Fingering the leader in disbelief.] You’re not going to believe where it broke.

BJ: Where?

WK: In the F***ing 40!

[Silence.]

BJ: And why would it broke in the 40, WindKnot? Can you explain that to me?

WK: …

BJ: Cause you told me that would never break in the 40. Never break. Never! Forget Wind Knot, your name is now Forty.

Roughly 26 minutes earlier:

BJ: Leader looks a little frayed there. Id retie, but thats just me.

WK: Dude, thats in the 40. [pull hard on line] Thatll never break.

BJ: Ok, man, you say so. I’m just sayin, I would change it. I dealt with a lot of frayed leaders on Diego and Id change it.

WK: Bro, look, I retied the 20-pound. Im telling you, that will break way before the 40.

BJ: Ok, man. You say so… it’s your fish.

The Most Interesting Guide of 2013…


Some say, he glows purple under infra-red light.

And that he builds fly leaders, mixes cocktails, and makes love
all strictly according to the Fibonacci Sequence.

All we know is he’s the most interesting guide in the world.

The Genius of Interesting


Some say, the list of his accolades is so unbelievable
it must be a figment of his own imagination,
for which he just won the Pulitzer Prize and the McCarthur Genius Award.

Others say that, strangely, he can only get drunk by osmosis.

All we’re sure of is he’s the most interesting guide in the world.

Fly Fishing is a Joke


This is as much about the insurmountable distance between the camera and the subject as it is about the indefinable draw of fly fishing. Made for my thesis for the MFA program in Science and Natural History Filmmaking at Montana State University.
Henry Harrison

Interesting Goes Fishing


Some say his strip strike is so fast
it can set fire to water,

And that when he fly fishes
he limits his false casts to zero.
