Priorities

Damned internet and these GoPro heroes have got us at TLH pretty bummed out lately.  

Pro tip... if you're a grown man and you find yourself walking around a convenience store, a parking lot, a boat ramp, or a duck blind filming yourself talking about what you're going to be doing for the next few hours, just stop.  Turn off the GoPro, iPhone, DSLR, or whatever it is you have in your hands, take a deep breath, and reflect on how life brought you to this moment.  What are your priorities as you search out adventure and film the process for public consumption?  

Are you trying to inspire others to hunt or fish or appreciate the outdoors?  Great!  The world needs more people like you!  What the world doesn't need is your ugly mug talking on and on (and on) about how cool the experience is, or how badass you are, or how much you love what you're doing, or how big the fish you just caught is.  People don't talk about the lights coming on when you flip a switch, or whether or not the sun will come up in the morning, because those conclusions are inevitable.  

If your video doesn't show how amazing, badass, or life-altering your experiences are, then your rambling on about them isn't going to help either.  If ya can't create something moving that adds value to the internet, then you should probably leave the video camera at home.

For reference, TLH has provided a short video below that you'll notice is free of hero shots, self-aggrandizing narration, and other stupid stuff you should avoid in your quest for GoPro stardom.  Note that this video isn't TLH's creation, but from some guys that know their way around a fly rod and a video camera.  For the sake of us all, please take notes.
