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.
