Thanks to a reader for sending. Urban Lines: Fish Where You Are (Trailer):

TwoFisted Heart Productions partnered with Freestone Entertainment to create a film on the tidal Potomac River that counters common stigmas and stereotypes of fly fishing. Four fly fishermen in Washington, D.C. demonstrate that fly fishing is more than an individual pursuit of the catch, more than once-a-year or once-in-a-lifetime trips out West or to exotic locations abroad. In an unlikely setting of concrete vistas, population density and traffic nightmares, the Potomac River proves that adventure and epic fishing are available to everyone on a daily basis. D.C. fly fishermen have embraced that concept through an online community that provides a 21st century, Web 2.0 take on passionately protecting our water resources for the future and connecting with the people around us. It’s about thinking globally and fishing locally. Otherwise, it’s just another sport.

Check out the Fly Fishing Film Tour here. Coming to Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse in March (ticket info here.)

    I sure hope they aren’t eatin’ too many of those feesh! That’s one of the dirtiest rivers in the USA!

  • Are there really stereotypes about fly fishing? I think most people just feel kind of meh about it.

      I believe the “common stigmas and stereotypes” they’re referring to are that fly fishing only takes place in pristine, remote areas and not in urban centers such as Washington, DC.

      I hope you’re right about people feeling kind of meh about fly fishing…more fish for me.

    • I think this video reinforced the stereotypes I hold about fly fishermen: they’re men, they’re white, and they wear a lot of khaki and navy green.
