Movie Details

Get hooked on one of America's favorite outdoor activities. From the American Sportsman video series, Fresh Water Fishing takes you angling in all types of climate and terrain, from Iceland to Africa. The film is hosted by former radio voice of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, and host of The American Sportsman, Curt Gowdy. Joining Gowdy on the fishing expedition is Richard Crenna, best known as Luke McCoy in the popular 1950s and 1960s television series The Real McCoys, and Peter O'Toole, the leading English actor of the 1960s and 1970s. Crenna and O'Toole try their luck, skill, and patience in hooking tiger fish and the mighty fighting salmon. The film offers celebrity flair and style as the team casts their lines in some of the greatest freshwater fishing spots in the world. ~ Sally Barber, Rovi
