Made in Maine

In two distinct sections, William Wegman delivers monologues about life in Maine. In the first, "Fly Fishing," he begins earnestly, telling the viewer the elements of a good fly fisherman and getting suited up. As he makes his way into his canoe and paddles off, he is followed by three Weimaraner dogs. He comes to a bank and begins trudging through the woods, and his narration becomes less practical and more ridiculous. Eventually, he comes to a field with an airplane in it. He gets in the airplane and takes off. In the second piece, "Wood," Wegman reflects on the wood industry in Maine, the usefulness of wood, and the deterioration of the environment as man makes use of this resource.

The work was broadcast as a segment of episode 301 (1993) of "New Television."
