Fly Fishing for Trout - Instructional Videos (DVD) - Part 5
Continued from yesterday

Our fourth release at Fly Fishing DVD was "Trout and Their Habitat". This intent of
this program is quite obvious - to cover the main four species of trout or rainbow,
brown, cutthroat and brook. It also points out the big differences in wild, native and
stocked trout.

Each of these species of trout have their own particular preferences for their type of
habitat. Each one of them have their own behavior patterns. Although some of them
may be found in the same stream (in a few cases all of them), they have different
preferences for feeding and resting lies. They also have some differences in their
preferred food.

The video also gets into the different types of streams - tailwaters, spring creeks
and freestone streams, and how these different species of trout relate to each of
them. It includes information on still waters and the differences in relationship to the
trout species found in lakes, ponds and other still waters.

The video has scenes of all four species of trout from many different streams in the
Northern and Southern Rocky Mountains, Mid-western streams from Arkansas to
Minnesota and the Northeastern, New England, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern
sections of the country.

The video has sold quite well but not as
well as we would have thought. We think
knowing all about the different species of
trout is very important. We thought the
information included would be helpful to
anyone with most any level of experience.

Title means everything and I suppose this
in one of those DVD that doesn't have a
very interesting name. Although it has been
available for sometimes, it has sold just
over half of the copies that most of our
others DVD have sold. We may should
have named it "Hot tips on catching all four
species of trout" or some catchy name.
Maybe it sounds a little to educational and
not very fun and exciting.
