We were listening to the Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast this week and heard a great interview with Colby Trow of Mossy Creek Fly Shop in Harrisonburg, VA. Colby and Tom talked mostly about smallmouth bass fishing and the fishery down in Virgina, but Colby (and his twin brother Brian) are also the focus of the film Blood Knot, which documents the brothers foray into fly fishing and entrepreneurship in, what many are calling, the “unheralded fishing destination” in the country. The Shenandoah Valley has a huge offering of species to target, including hard-to-find mountain brook trout, spring creek rainbows and browns, as well as some of the best smallmouth, carp and musky fishing out there. Check out the teaser trailer for the film.
You can read more about Blood Knot, as well as the other great films, at the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) website. Also, be sure to check out the full Orvis podcast episode to hear the interview with Colby. (And start subscribing to the podcast if you aren’t already. It’s one of the best ones out there.)
