Two unlikely partners who grew up in the village of Walden NY hooked up one day. One a retired no-good-nik and the other an accomplished movie director ; the later of which having no fly fishing experience.
Together they hatched a plan to come up with a fly fishing documentary film, based in the Catskill Mountains of New York, to share the history of a cult type sport. The film encompasses the heros and legends from the late 1880’s to the present day . They assembled some of the true living legends of the sport, along with an eclectic array of modern day characters both professional and weekend warrior fly fisher persons. These characters include the broad spectrum of men, women and kids’ who all share the common passion to chase trout with a fly rod. The journey has taken both of us to a new understanding of the sport. The most pleasurable part of the journey was the common thread of conservation towards the great places fishing takes us. A few Newcastle Brown Ales, Miller High Lifes and Jim beams Did not hurt
