“Find the key emotion; this may be all you need know to find your short story.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
The basis of a good short story, according to F. Scott Fitzgerald, is emotion. Well, when a tarpon breaks off a daisy chain to inspect your fly, there is, in that instance, no more emotional conquest than keeping your cool, and no more exhilarating moment than the one when the line goes taut.
It’s hard to create a short video that tells a good story. This one, by Ganesh Chatani, has neither too much, nor too little of the things we love about hunting tarpon on the flats. Plus, we just love a good aerial eat.
