For the 9th year, The Drake has handed out awards for the best fly-fishing videos at the annual trade show, International Fly Tackle Dealer (held this year in Orlando). On Wednesday night, the prizes for “Best Freshwater Film” and “Best Fly Fishing Film” went to Blood Knot, about Brian and Colby Trow, the twin brothers who operate Mossy Creek Fly Fishing, an Orvis-endorsed outfitter in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Here’s what Colby had to say:
Unreal. Overwhelmed. Utterly blown away. Thanks to everyone who supported the film. Nick and Kami Swingle Ladson Webb, Two TwoFisted Heart Productions for creating this film! Tom Sadler for getting us all mixed up in the industry. The Orvis Company, Tenkara USA, Art Webb with BCF, Virginia Tourism, and of course the lovely wives that put up with our shenanigans. Best Freshwater Film? Seriously. Thanks Tom Bie , The Drake Magazine, and F3T!
Congratulations to the Trows, as well as to TwoFisted Heart Productions.
