A Deliberate Post

The Smythester
The Smythester (aka Matt Smythe) and photographer Grant Taylor  recently released the trailer for their film A Deliberate Life. A full length version will be debued at IF4.

From watching the trailer, I find that it has all the things that I have come to expect from the introspective side of fly fishing film: stunning landscapes, sun flares, neato time lapse imagery, slow motion RED EPIC deliciousness, more sun flares, pretty fish, dramatic music, etc.

The message is simple and pertinent: Like an a capella version of the Beastie Boys, Fight For Your Right, A Deliberate Life reminds you to not only to fight for your right to party, but for the pursuit of happiness and for that which is most important to you.

Yeah. Pretty solid way to be.

  1. What a refreshing wake up call.

  2. Thank you for the props, bro.
    And the juxtaposition of a capella and the Beasties - that's hot.

    1. You are Welcome my main man mayonnaise.

  3. Not for nothin' but I need to take another crack at the PM. That weekend is stuck in my craw like the stocker you posted above.
    Of course, Mr. Dunn is now in NY - so we may have to gather on the Catt instead. With all the Southern Tier Brewing Company goodness we can carry.


What sayeth you?
