Synopsis

Nestled amongst the mountains and valleys of upstate New York lies the Delaware river system, a network of waterways prized by dry fly fishing enthusiasts for its challenges and remoteness. Catching the wild trout that call these waters home is no easy feat, making the fishermen who hunt them all the more passionate about their craft. Filmmaker Aaron Weisblatt’s documentary explores the annals of these angler’s obsession, from the art of casting the perfect line to the sport’s origins as a secretive art known to a select group of local fishing families. Contrary to dry fly fishing's clandestine beginnings, each man and woman who lines the banks of the Delaware’s watershed is eager to share their carefully honed skills with rookies and veterans alike. Along with its sweeping beauty, Land of Little Rivers provides a charming glimpse into a subculture where unique personalities are as likely to amass as the fish they relentlessly pursue. – Avery Davenport
