At last summer’s International Fly Tackle Dealer in Orlando, Blood Knot took the prizes for “Best Freshwater Film” and “Best Fly Fishing Film” at the awards ceremony hosted by The Drake. The film is 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 how the folks from TwoFisted Heart Productions describe it:
The Shenandoah Valley lies just two hours outside of our nation’s capital and offers some incredibly diverse freshwater fishing. It is hard to find mountain brook trout, spring creek rainbows and browns in such close proximity to some of the best smallmouth, carp, and musky fishing in the country. Twin brothers, Brian and Colby Trow, are natives of Virginia who took their love of fly fishing together and put it all on the line to ‘live the dream’ in the center of this unheralded fishing destination. More than 10 years and one nasty economic recession later, Brian and Colby understand the risks and costs of running a small business. Success comes with the price of long hours and being away from family, but it is time on the water together that keeps them connected.
The good news is that now everyone can watch the entire 34-minute film, either by purchasing a DVD or watching it on-demand on vimeo or iTunes.
