JC: What stereotypes about flyfishing do you think you're breaking with this film?
RT: Well, I suppose in this instance it's hard to wrap your head around a bunch of old punk rockers fly fishing, let alone liking the small stream technical fishing found in the Driftless. It's not that punk rockers wouldn't fly fish, I would just think if they did it would be more on the salmon, steelhead end of things...you know, a little more fist-pumpy, rock 'n roll, screaming drag kinda deal, not quaint spring creek trout fishing. So, in terms of the piece itself, it's not a travel/adventure, exotic location, in search of the biggest fish thing. It's a story about these three guys, their history and experiences in the early punk scene and their passion for flyfishing, which in a lot of aspects is greater than their passion for music. And, it's all set right here in the Midwest. These are the stories that interest me.
