Successful Fly Fishing for the Beginner is the first in a new series of fly fishing videos which re-enforces fundamentals, addresses casting techniques, and presents on-water fishing instruction for the specific level of fly fisherman, and is presented in DVD-video widescreen and 1080i high-definition Blu-ray Disc.
Runtime 90 minutes

In other words, watch the video on a standard DVD player at home, a portable device while on a trip, a PC, and have the option to watch in high-definition on a home entertainment center flat panel or projection system today, or in the future!

Viewing the Blu-ray instructional video in 1080i on a 60" screen, or larger is like looking out a VIP sky box window onto a streamside playing field taking lessons from a maestro fly caster. The detail observed in high-definition 1080 pixel elements surpasses DVD 480 pixel elements even with the new upscale DVD players. Refer to the Next Generation Blu-ray High Definition section below for detailed information.

Jeff is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Two-Handed Casting Instructor, one of the most sought after instructors on the West Coast!

Next Generation Blu-ray High Definition

It is our goal to provide the highest quality fly fishing video today.

JPFFS high-definition DVD media delivers high-definition content with a resolution of 1080 pixel elements (1,555,200 pixels every frame). That's 4.5 times greater than standard DVD video with a resolution of 480p (345,600 pixels every frame) which offers extraordinarily vibrant contrast, and color in addition to beautifully crisp sound.

The new DVD players that have upscale features via the HDMI port do a very good job of improving the picture quality with the 480 DVD pixel elements. But when you do the math, 1.5 million pixels per panel, or projection gun equals 3 million plus pixels and with a 720p, 1080i, or 1080p display it will provide more detail hands down.

High Definition Video System Requirements

Our high definition video content was recorded at 1080/60i, edited & encoded for Blu-ray Disc format, and verified on the Panasonic DMP-BD10A, Sony BDP-S300, Sony PS3, Pioneer BDP-95F compatible Blu-ray disc players, and the Dell XPS M1530 High-definition laptop.

To insure the best possible viewing experience, your player may require a firmware update.
