A few years back I wrote about a little fly fishing movie called “Low and Clear.” I honestly feel it was one of the most poignant and best pieces I’d ever seen about our sport. The funny thing is, it wasn’t really even about fishing. It was more of an exploration of two different men’s views and the ways they approached life. It worked wonderfully and really made one think about their own life and how to approach even the smallest things — like fishing.
Now the filmmakers are back with a short documentary about a gentleman named Ed Zevely, who is 68 years old and “chooses to ride out into the Colorado high country for two weeks at a time. And he does it alone.” While the short movie doesn’t have much to do with fishing, it does have what I consider to be many elements why we all love the outdoors, and the lengths we go to appreciate and spend time there.
