Film night: Carp in the Bronx

OK, so no adipose fins were implicated in the making of this movie. But here at we have the deepest respect for any fish caught anywhere in the concrete jungle… maybe most of all if it’s hooked, played and landed on a fly-rod.

Via Orvis News, Moldy Chum and The Marble Trout come 3 zipcarp-filled minutes of Lifestyles of the Poor. It stands to reason that film-maker Christian Medina also works in the Orvis Yonkers store, so we’re inspired to see he’s making the most of his fishing opportunities.

The closing frames, with the roar of passing traffic over a fly-fisher stealthily wading a darkening pool… these take us right back to the mysterious heart of why we fish our ambiguous city streams.
