"Fisherman's Fall": Roderick Haig-Brown


"Fisherman's Fall" was directed by Robert Nichol and produced by Peter Jones for the National Film Board of Canada in 1967. One of Canada's best known fly-fishermen and conservationists, Roderick Haig-Brown, demonstrates the art of salmon fishing in the Campbell River of northern Vancouver Island, against a background of early autumn foliage. The film, like the fisherman, has eyes for more than the river's surface. The camera looks below, showing what the fish sees and the fisherman senses. A film of solitude and of harmony with nature.
