Beards. Babes. Leather. John Gierach. Potatoes. Film-making. Fish, fish, and more fish. This week’s Video Shout Out has something from all the major food groups!

We usually like to feature a fresh video for the Shout Out, but this week’s pick is an obvious exception. We’ve been getting excited for this year’s Fly Fishing Show, due to hit our neck of the woods (Lancaster/Harrisburg) the weekend of March 1st and 2nd. One of the more exciting features of the “all things fly fishing” expo is the screening for the International Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4). This year’s featured films look promising, and we’ll be sure to highlight some of them in the weeks coming up. For now, we thought we’d check out last year’s winner in the “Short Film” category, “The Beard Chronicles” by Marc Crapo.

Be sure to check out his website [] to learn more about his work as an artist, leather worker, film-maker and general badass.

Tight lines!
