    Tx guys for compliments , i didnt expect it. Son is well on his way to recovery they are a lot tougher than we think.

    As for the video , I am almost there. I have just completed the menus, transitions. Still need the credits and sound tracks. I was hoping you guys could offer a sound track. I am struggling with this part. Nothing "bites" me so to speak. Maybe someone on the forum has an idea.

    There is a song by Golden Dorado.
    Radar Fish

    It starts with words

    "I have been fishing all day.
    My hands are wet reel.
    There is a voice in my head that makes me fish
    It is the fish calling, says come catch me here
    The sea is cold and I need you here
    It is half past four and I need you here.
    Is is so lonely and I need your fly.......

    ETc etc etc etc/

    Yes, all in my head.
    But if I have to give you my version, it will scare all the fish in the sea.

    It is my adatation of Radar Love from Golden Earing.

    Which I sing when I am alone in the car on the way to fishing.

    Maybe you can get a local band to perform it for you.

    The whole guitar and cymbals etc might work very well with extremes of shark fly fishing.

    What about getting the back track and getting a local to sing the words for you?

    Depends on how long the video is that you are editing.

    If it drags out......well, you need to spice it up.

    If it's short, sharp in your face, well Pantera or Papa Roach readily spring to mind. Pantera's 'Walk' plays for 5 odd minutes and is a ripper.

    At the end of the day, it's what floats your boat.

    All good mate.

    Just read this story, awesome!
    "bud, today G0D was showing off"
    Amen!

    I would love to know what knots you tie in a rig like this? Please run me throught them knot by knot all the way from the backing to the fly. How long is the shock tippet/leader? breaking strains for big game fish like these? trace? Thanks
