Check out the new Verizon ad featuring Jim Klug and Ian Davis from Yellowdog Flyfishing Adventures. I met Jim this summer at the Ennis "Tie On One" Fly Fishing Festival and he invited me down next summer to hang out at Yellowdog, so I roped him into participating in the film. A lot of the footage in the Verizon ad comes from  Confluence Films where Jim and Chris Patterson have created two of the most revered cinematic masterpieces of fly fishing adventure travel, Drift and Rise.  Jim explained to me how ecstatic the crew is at Yellowdog to be profiled but feels there's a benefit to fly fishing overall, "Obviously, Yellow Dog is excited to be a part of this Verizon campaign, as anything that showcases our company and our services on that level is bound to be good for us!  That said, I also believe that anything that showcases our sport and the beauty of fly fishing is something that's good for all of us in the industry. When something as simple as a quick ad or commercial for Verizon, Chevy Trucks, John Deere, etc. can profile the attractions of fly fishing to a large segment of people who may have never even thought about fly fishing, it a great thing." - Jim Klug. That's probably exactly why Jim has agreed to participate in Spring Creek: Ranchers, Anglers, Water and Trout. Congrats to everyone at Yellowdog! Now I'm only wondering, where exactly was Jim when I called him for that quote! More Later T>
