Fly fishing movies

On our page on fishing films, you will not find these videos, where people get fish after fish.

Fishing is more than that. We look for movies where fishing or the fish is embedded in a story, in historic ambiance or just in nature.

If you know films which can fulfil these requirements, your suggestions are welcome

A river runs through it A river runs through it

”Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.”
