Live The Stream is the inspiring life story of Pennsylvania’s fly fishing legend, Joe Humphreys: a man who was born to fly fish, lives to teach, and strives to pass on a respect for our local waters. A visually stunning film, anyone with a pulse can appreciate Joe’s contagious spirit and, at 86-years-young, trout streams are his fountains of youth. This is an emotion-packed adventure and Joe will catch your heart in this powerful tale of tenacity, life and love
He’ll hook you within minutes.
Joe Humphreys is a man with a wonderful family, a wealth of friends, and a resume of remarkable talents. He’s a multi-lettered collegiate athlete who easily could have chosen another career path but, instead, decided to devote his life to fly fishing. Joe’s traveled the world representing the U.S. in fly fishing competitions, has guided presidents & celebrities, held a Pennsylvania record, hosted an ESPN show, and was inducted into the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, yet Joe’s focus has always been on teaching, coaching, and passing on the joys of fly fishing to anyone who wants to learn.
His books have helped many students better their skills and his classroom work as a 19-year instructor of the renowned Penn State Angling program is just as esteemed. If you’re familiar with fly fishing you’ll recognize “Hump” on the street or on the stream but if you know nothing about angling, you’d think he was an average Joe. He’s an icon happily living his life in a local community but his impact on fly fisherman all over the world is profound. There’s no way to know how many people Joe has inspired. This man never slows down… even at 86 years old and that’s impressive.
What drives him? Why does he love fly-fishing and what importance does he see in passing it on? This is the Joe Humphreys’ story of Live The Stream.
