Everyone’s favorite fly-fishing guide, Hank Patterson, is back with an all-new adventure, as he and his crack team chase down a rumor that someone has spotted the elusive cuttyrainbrown trout. The film documents Hank’s quest to become the first human ever to catch the mythical cuttyrainbrown on a fly rod. The story takes him and his crew to all six corners of the state of Idaho, into Montana, in and out of fly shops, and down many of Hank’s favorite trout fishing rivers. Join Hank as he deals with crazy hitchhikers, kidnappings, ex-girlfriend yoga instructors, and many more twists and turns in this truly one-of-a-kind fly fishing film that is sure to become one of the most memorable and hard-to-believe fishing tales of all time.
Anyone familiar with Hanks oeuvre knows that the cuttyrainbrown is his white whale, and he’s willing to do anything to catch one. As you’ll see in the trailer above, that means he’ll even walk away from a lucrative TV deal. Call him Ishmael, I guess.
The film has its World Premier in Helena, Montana, on January 15, followed by screenings in Missoula (1/16) and Boise (1/30). To schedule a screening near you, visit Hank’s website.
