Not slick, but has good info

"This DVD is combined text and video. It is not a DVD that you sit back and watch straight through as a video. It looks like a couple of old Utah fish biologists did it with a handheld digital camera, so the result is definately not slick and polished. However, it is competent, and has much good information, especially the text component, on a wide variety of subjects.
I have some pretty serious problems with the casting demonstration, and if you want thorough treatement you probably ought to look at the Joan Wolff DVD.
You are probably better off using this on a computer with DVD, which is where I am watching it, than on a TV DVD player. It's organized basically by chapters and it is more useful if you have something like a mouse to select what you want to look at. It really looks like it was intended to be used as a supplement for some form of high school or junior college outdoor recreations course."
Very amateurish video

"I hate to be the bad guy but this video deserves at best 1.5 stars. It has an extremely amaterish presentation, complete with shaky camera, strong distracting background noise, poor non-concrete information, and lots of stuttering from the star. The guy really needs to take a speech class. What can i say.
That was it. Coundn't take it anymore. Production quality, speech quality, information quality were all just poor.

"Beautiful visuals. Makes even a non-outdoorsman long for nature. Interesting techniques, several I had never seen before. Clear demonstrations.
All that, and possible course credit too!
