Driftless exploration continued….. Heart of the Driftless

Unfortunately, I lost my copy of this film. Heart of the Driftless is a great flick from Third Year Fly Fisher. He has made his rounds at the Fly Fishing Film Tours. This is a great film dn now available for download digitally.

Oh man. Look at that tall grass along those tiny streams. It’s a jungle out there.

The Unique Driftless

I’m going to continue posting Driftless Area related material as we get ready for the move. Next up is a short documentary exploring the many different unique attributes of the Driftless Area by exploring how it was made. This is less than 30 minutes and pretty darn awesome (effigy mounds, rattle snakes, caves, arctic aged plants and more).

One point the video makes that I think can be extrapolated to many unique resources is that, lots of times, local residents aren’t aware of how special or unique their own back yards really are. As such, it doesn’t occur to them to protect or preserve it.

One gentleman perfectly shows this when asked what the Driftless Area is he he responds,
“Is it a desert?”

Driftless Love by Winona Fly Factory

Man. I’ve been away too long. With my head down I seemed to have missed Justing over at WFF has been back at it. I’ve always enjoyed following his blog as he fishes my home waters. Now, with renewed interest I can read again as I will be heading back that way for at least a year come July. 
He is a strong advocate for the treasure that is the Driftless Area. Last fall he presented this video compilation for the Citizens Watershed Summit. 
Great work, Justin.
