The Fishermen of Plum Island is a one-hour documentary film exploring the culture of fishing on Plum Island, Massachusetts. The barrier island just off the coast of Newburyport is one of the finest fishing locales in the Northeast and draws an exceptionally diverse group of people searching for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Cod, Flounder, Mackerel and others.

On the hunt for 150-pound tarpon, extreme kayak anglers, Jim and Greg, headed to Florida's legendary, shark-infested Boca Grande Pass. With tidal currents peaking at a whopping 8 knots and enough boat traffic to intimidate the most experienced captain, it is no surprise that Jim and Greg's presence marked the first ever kayak fishing attempt at Boca Grande and likely the last one for quite some time.

Heliconia Press also offers an instructional kayak fishing DVD and book. LINK
Roger Willoughby is considered to be a leading expert on sports fishing. He's written books on the subject and is loved by his customers in the sporting goods department at Abercrombie and Fitch, where he works. There's only one problem however: he's never been fishing in his life. When the store owner enters him in a fishing contest, mayhem ensues.
For more of TM's ridiculously phenomenal work - take a nice long hard look at this!
...take a break from post production and Top Ramen to talk some smack. We ripped this Podcast from Marshall at Midcurrent (thanks) who ripped it from Zack at the Itinerant Angler (thanks again). Again, this and the rest of the Fly Fishing Film Festival is coming to a theater (hopefully) near you. And, as of yesterday, Moldy Chum and Reel Pure have stepped up to help sponsor this film festival.
The members of the Angling Exploration Group have made it their mission to provide fly fishing's stodgier establishment with a much-needed shot in the rear. Whether they're pummeling rented Jeeps in Patagonia or trout bumming their way across Reykjavik, these young documentarians and explorers make desk-bound anglers everywhere jealous, though as you'll hear, it's not all tall blondes and warm campsites...LINK
On Thursday night in Denver we learned a few things. The Oxford Hotel venue was too small to handle the swarm of fish porn junkies. Hot chicks dig watching slob fish take dry flies on the big screen. And last but not least, there was some solid production talent in the house.
These videos will release soon, so keep an eye out for them.
