Reeling in the action from Fly Fishing Film Tour at the Bing

Blackwater Devil's Gold (Official Trailer) from Castaway Films on Vimeo.

FISHING -- Incredible fishing sequences and photography was so common in Tuesday night's Fly Fishing Film Tour at the Bing Crosby Theater -- we came to expect nothing less.  Here are my top picks in several categories:

Best action:  Blackwater Devil's Gold, fishing in Bolivia for golden dorado, one of the wildest of freshwater fish (see short trailer above, or 7-minute clip here).

Best story: Hit 'em again Doc, featuring Dr. Robert Franklin, 85, an angler with Parkinson's, and his guide.

Best fishing sequence:  Fall Run, a Pacific Northwest steelheading film with an "over the top" action footage of landing a fish in a canyon where the sun don't shine.

Best line: The intriguing thing about steelheading is that ... you have to be cool with not catching them.
