Such superlatives could become numbing. But narrator Ben Raines is a hardcore fisherman, and this is his home water. He lets the place carry the story, along with a wide range of Alabama tale-tellers, from gator hunters to the fishing explorer Pat Ogburn, who is determined to make his way into the most hidden reaches of the swamp, to commercial fisherman and restaurant owner Robert Dean of the Dixie Landing Café, who supplies his kitchen with fresh catfish by running his own string of fish boxes on the Tensaw. You'll meet Sylvester Hooks, who is repaying a debt to the Delta--he's eaten its fish, gigged its bullfrogs and gators, run trotlines, all his life--by taking as many young people out fishing as he can. The film is dedicated to Alabama's native son and one of the world's most respected scientists, E.O. Wilson, who is still happily roaming the Red Hills and the Delta swamps at age 85. Wilson adds his own commentary about the importance of protecting the Delta while we still can.
