The video below is an excerpt from “Nemesis” by filmmaker Vak Magasin, which chronicles one angler’s quest for a personal-best brown trout on Russia’s Kola Peninsula. The entire work is worth a watch, but my favorite part is the victory sequence you’re about to see. After suffering through the loss of one monster brown, then having to watch a buddy catch one, the final pay-out is one sick dry fly eat. And if you don’t get a laugh out of the guy’s reaction, check your pulse. As goofy as he sounds, that squeal lets you know he’s truly been waiting for this fish for a long time.
