This is a beautiful film about fly fishing which I highly recommend whether or not you partake in the sport. It follows a journey for steelhead endured by John Townes “JT” Van Zandt, (the musician John Townes Van Zandt’s son), and his good friend Alex Hall. From the film’s creators Finback Films the piece is, “A meditation on friendship, the film seeks to examine how for some, life can be about fishing. And for others, fishing can be about life.”

What’s the title of that song he’s playing?

That’s a good question, not sure what Townes song it is, let me do a little digging…maybe someone else will chime in.

The song is called “Dollar Bill Blues” by Townes Van Zandt.

Just wanted to give you a heads up about the angry emails you’ll be receiving from my wife the next time it’s my turn to pick the movie.

Promising to say the least, it has that brilliant Fishing with John-vibe. Thanks!

I just wrapped up a blog post with a nice selection of fly-fishing films & trailers over at deadbait.

Nice coincidence–the editor of Low & Clear, Alex Jablonsky, started at 40 Acres & a Mule, Spike Lee’s production co. I ran Spike’s ad agency for a few years. Imagine, going from films with such an urban feel to Low & Clear? I guess a good story is a good story no matter what the subject is.
