Abe Streep writing in Outside Magazine asks, can a cult fly-fishing novel about a young man coming of age in the wild blow up on the big screen? Readers ask if they'll actually get to see Amber Heard naked.
Streep also covers the background story of trying to make the film without the cooperation of David James Duncan.

The River Why movie website has been updated with a photo gallery of cast, crew and movie scenes.
A packed house at the Seattle's Neptune Theater was treated to another fine evening of Fly Fishing Film Tour goodness which was followed up with some post show synaptic lubricant with cast and crew. The pace and flow of the show has been tweaked a bit since the premier in Ventura with some editing and rearranging of the roster of films.
Andy Parkinson of Fish Mongolia, that's him on the left, sent us his pics from the evening. According to the Fish Bum crew Andy saved them from potential disaster on a couple of occasions but could not save them from the local milk vodka or me from doing my Kubla Khan imitation.
Some interesting creative results from Andy's screen shots from the Fish Bum clip.
The tour heads next to Montana for a limited engagement in Missoula and Bozeman before the team splits up and the east coast venues start their run.
In case you missed the latest Fish Bum trailer here it is to get you fired up to see the extended clip at a tour stop near you.
Trout used in the movie were pond-raised in Montana and were kept in a specially aerated and cooled tank truck until their big moment in front of the cameras. No hooks were used, and no blood was drawn. A line was tied to each fish's lower jaw under the careful observance of the Montana Humane Society. Via: Montana Kids LINK
Bruce Neuman gives two thumbs down to Catch and Release fishermen.
The ethical construct that binds catch-and-release fisherman together apparently works like this:They have a willingness to stab an unsuspecting fish in the mouth with a hook, then use a body-weight advantage
of roughly 20-to-1 to reel it in while experiencing this as "sport,"
after which they spend a few minutes admiring their mastery over
nature, then toss the maimed and disfigured creature back in the water.
He didn't like the movie either. VIA Inside Bay Area LINK
The film hits screens today.
The Vancouver-area fishing instructor and guide is the on-the-set expert who makes the actors look convincing with a fly rod. Her most recent movie, Catch & Release, is out this month, and she recently chatted with F&S contributor (and research editor for In-Style magazine) Stephen Camelio.
