Where’s Your Bobber?

Wednesday, July 31st, 2002




From Odessa Filmworks, the award winning team that sucker punched the world with Harry Knuckles and the Treasure of the Aztec Mummy and rewrote the gospel of Canadian filmmaking with Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter comes the first fishing video that dares to ask the question "Where's Your Bobber?".

Lee Demarbre is an independent filmmaker. His uncle-in-law Ken Drouillard has cerebral palsy, a medical condition that affects control of the muscles. Both have an unquenchable thirst for adventure. Together, Lee and Ken travel deep into the heart of the Canadian wilderness on a voyage of self-discovery, manly camaraderie and, of course, fishing.

The conversation drifts with the tide as Lee and Ken reel in such controversial topics as the catch-and-release program, living with CP in today’s political climate, the nature of life and death, and how best to tell the man from whom you rented your boat that you've lost his anchor.

So grab your life jacket and cast off with the intrepid outdoorsmen of "Where's Your Bobber?".

It's a whole new angle on angling.
