Not since Brad Pitt showed us the shadow cast in A River Runs Through It has a major motion picture been released with a big emphasis on fly fishing. Then along comes Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt. The gist of the story is that a Middle Eastern sheik wants to introduce British-style salmon fishing to the desert, and McGregor, who plays a fisheries biologist, is brought in to help the sheiks’s vision become a reality. Much like A River Runs Through It, it appears from the trailer below that a love story is woven in, along with plenty of drama, and touching moments. So I’m curious: as anglers, does this flick pique your interest? I don’t go to the movies very often, but it seems we have a film here that perhaps both the Mrs. and I can enjoy. And that’s rare. Salmon Fishing In The Yemen is due out in March 2012.
