LAND OF LITTLE RIVERS
ON DVD & STREAMING (AMAZON &VIMEO) ON MAY 19
Two buddies grew up in the village of Walden, New York, took diverging paths, then reconnected one day and hatched a plan to make a movie. Retired businessman and full time fly-fisherman, Bruce Concors, partnered with producer/director Aaron Weisblatt to craft an insiders’ ode to anglers and the region known as the Land of Little Rivers, a network of tributaries in the Catskill Mountains known as the birthplace of fly fishing. The documentary premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival and will be released on DVD and Streaming platforms starting May 19, 2020 by Cinema Libre Studio.
Synopsis: The Land of Little Rivers, a network of tributaries in the Catskill Mountains of New York, is the birthplace of fly fishing in America and the mecca for resident and visiting anglers obsessed with the sport.
Other personalities include Rachel Finn, head-guide at the Hungry Trout Fly Shop in the Adirondacks, who enjoys whiskey and cigars while instructing both men and women on the famed Ausable River. Expert Delaware River guides, Robert Lewis and Ben Rinker, offer insights into the sport. Marty Yi, an Iraq War veteran and Wounded Warrior, speaks to how the sport literally saved his life. Mike Canazon, who crafts custom bamboo rods, is driven both by a search for excellence and the one that got away.
Uplifting and warm, this beautifully shot documentary delves into the lives of fly fishers, the wounds they heal, the bonds they form and the history and conservation they preserve in the sport they love.
Fly-fishing season normally starts in April and although rivers have not been closed due to the coronavirus restrictions, anglers have been pressured to stay away. Says Concors, “Most fly fishermen have been socially distanced their whole fishing life. However, the community is now really hard on people fishing in the same boat and riding with people during these days of COVID. As a nonessential business, guides are not allowed to have clients, so the economic impact is affecting them as well. Numerous fishing resorts and conservation organizations are urging people to not fish with others and for out-of-towners to stay away from fishing towns completely.”
