That video clip is awesome, if other's haven't seen it yet it's at http://www.geocities.com/speypages/video.htm or click <!--http--><a href="http://www.geocities.com/speypages/video.htm" target="_blank">HERE</a><!--url--> for the video.

Amazing... the legacy of what is brewin' in the PNW goes way beyond the Hefferweissen and espresso... it's a key page in the book of angling history. I am glad I had my 12 years there (plus 1-2 visits each year!)
BTW - nice article in this month's Fish@Fly magazine by Dec. If the photo on the first two pages wasn't impressive enough by itself! I heard from the Airflo / FlyLogic rep that they went to the river with Dec, got setup for photography, and with one cast and a click - they were done.
