...this a very good video for any parent to share with the aspiring young fly fishers in their household.

One last word, I sure wish I had a flyfishing grandmother like Fanny to take me flyfishing in Montana when I was growing up. So it goes……...Anne
— Anne Vitale, President, GWWF
Over the years we have been exposed to various fly fishing video’s. Once in awhile an exceptional DVD comes to the market. What I like especially about Fanny’s new kid’s video is that it is simple but captures the essence of how to teach our children about fly fishing. The DVD “Tomorrow’s Fly Fishers” is a must for any youngster that want to learn to fly fish.

It wouldn’t hurt if some adults watched it too.
— Philip Greenlee, FFF President / Chairman of the Board
It’s a great DVD and I’ve used it many times (the techniques) to teach fly fishing ... it seems to work better with kids, but it also works with adults.

While others might reach for techno-speak to talk about casting mechanics, Mel uses perfectly descriptive terms for what I'm supposed to be doing."

"This may be the single most user-friendly, down-to-earth, no-nonsense video to come down the digital pike... it is organized without being orchestrated; segmentalized without being segmented; paced without pontificating; simple without being simplistic; above all, it is understandable and has a purpose ...the videography was excellent throughout and the underwater shots particularly effective..."
