Fishing on Film: A River Runs Through It (1992)
This still—used for the original poster for the film—evokes the Academy Award-nominated cinematography of Philippe Rousselot. While he has shot several films in the wild including The Bear and The Emerald Forest, Rousselot’s most recent work with Tim Burton and on the new Sherlock Holmes series has unfortunately been more studio-bound.

My friend D lost her dad recently. Among the many things Russ taught her, he taught her to fish.  Here is Russ with a fine catch.

Fly Fishing Legends: Roderick Haig-Brown (1908-1976)
The conservationist and writer (A River Never Sleeps, Fisherman’s Spring) was born in Sussex, England but lived most of his life in Campbell River, British Columbia where he was magistrate from 1941 until 1974. A provincial park near Kamloops bears his name in recognition of his efforts to preserve the salmon spawning grounds on the Fraser River and its tributaries.
