Happy New Year to All!

And many thanks for your support for our film.  We love hearing from you.  A few examples below……

Wow, What a movie! You don’t have to like fly fishing to love this movie. Wow, What a movie!”

“Fantastic movie for anyone who has a philosophical bone in their body, a passion for a hobby/sport, and loves beauty. The film swept me away and is now on my list of favorite movies. In an age where so many movies are insultingly stupid and obnoxious, this is refreshingly thoughtful, the cinematography unforgettable and every bit is believable – not just because of the talented actors but a genuinely good story. Although I thought it was a romance when I put it in my queue, it is SO much more! And yet the romantic portion of the film was integral and so very well done. I highly recommend!!”

“Never read the book, but if the movie was this good then the book should be sublime. So, I guess I’ll have to fit the book in somewhere. For me the movies works on a number of levels: coming of age and into yourself along with finding out who that might be, figuring out who you really are beyond who you thought you were, and of course, a nice love story. Two love stories actually as you find later a depth to the parent’s relationship that folks can be excused for missing early on. If you aren’t contemplative type and you can’t appreciate that learning is experiential, therefore takes time and well, experiences, then you may not enjoy the movie as much.”

“This really is a wonderful treasure. Thank god for independent movies. It was the perfect movie for me this day as Im feeling the changes of early Fall. Im in Maine and walk everyday a few miles thru woods and ponds and huge river. I think that is when this story snatched me in and I was hooked. Anyhow I loved this great story that just chugged along and got better and better. Also a happy end is something I like. Maybe some people didn’t care for it because they are locked into the city world. I prefer being locked here by father mother nature. Sad so many people so seldom connect back with nature. If you love a story told in a rural area you will like this movie. I really didn’t want it to end. All the actors were right on the mark which really is another reason to watch. I hope you do.”

What I Did On My Summer Vacation:
My heart goes out to everyone on the East Coast impacted by Hurricane Irene.  After screening “The River Why” June 4 at National River Rally, River Network’s annual conclave, we drove from Charleston, SC to Manchester, VT.  Such lush and beautiful country the whole trip.

When I saw Vermont’s swollen rivers on the news today, it made me think about my new friends in Manchester, VT – - especially those at the American Museum of Fly Fishing.  We were back there in early June to attend the opening of “A Graceful Rise: Women in Fly Fishing Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow” .  It is a gorgeous exhibit that honors the key roles women have played in fly-fishing history and how they continue to inspire anglers today.  In attendance:  Joan Wolff, Fanny Krieger, Diana Rudolph, Kathryn Maroun and so many more incredible women.  They included me and “The River Why” in the exhibit.  I keep joking that I’m now old enough to be a museum artifact, but in truth, I am deeply honored to be part of such an amazing group.  The exhibit runs through April 2012, so be sure to check it out.

All good wishes to those still wading through the after effects of the storm.

“The Carp” -1959 Rambler Sport

(Sorry for duplicate post – a couple of tech issues the other day!)

“The Carp” , a 1959 Rambler Sport, 2 door, must move from its present location outside of Portland, Oregon. Our production designer, Tyler Robinson, describes its current state this way:

Basically, the current condition is similar to these but with more dirt, cob-webs and maybe a wasp nest or 2. The kitchen is still installed and all of the major elements are intact but some of the dressing is missing. I still have the back seat for it if someone would like to reinstall it. I should probably mention again that it was running and then was parked for a year or two and I tried to start it a few months ago and it wouldn’t turn over. I’m sure its nothing a mechanic couldn’t take car of without much trouble.
It really is a beautiful car and if I had time and money to fix it and space to store it I would love to get it road worthy but I’m short on a few of those things so
Anyway, somebody will be very lucky to have this thing.

Anyone interested, please contact me! Best offer, please! It’s a collector’s item.
