I watched The Incredible Mr. Limpet last week after watching Jaws a couple of weeks ago. Got me thinking: what do people consider their favorite fish or fishing movie?

A River Runs Through It

Don't care for the family drama aspect but the story telling of fly fishing to man is good.

I like " A River Runs Through It." But, my favorite fishing movie is "JAWS" hands down, being an all-around fisherman, but primarily a salt-water angler. The angler Quint, based on real-life fisherman Frank Mundus, made the entire movie for me. Without the character Quint, the movie would only be good to me, not great. The sequels and beyond were all just laughable and not really worth viewing unless you just want want to fall asleep on 2,3...ZZZZZZzzzz when there is a marathon on AMC. Cool

Grumpy Old Men had lots of hilarious fishing antics. Many of which we played on each other. But I agree, Jaws is the best.

Raymie, 1960. It's been years since I saw it but it is a perfect fisherman's movie. Also agree with Red and Simplycook on A River Runs Through It. And this scene from The Quiet Man is something we've all experienced:

No love for The Old Man and the sea? The marlin footage is of the all tackle world record black marlin.

I had never thought about it but there are probably more golf movies than fishing movies. I can name at least five golf movies but only three fishing movies (Jaws, River Runs Through It, and The Perfect Storm). That's remarkable in that people have been fishing for thousands of years but golfing (or sleeping while watching golf on TV!) for only a couple centuries (not the TV part). We had lots of time to build up some stock of fishing material.

My vote is Jaws. Not a SUPERIOR FILM ... but a great movie.

I'm surprised more people didn't mention "The Old Man and The Sea." I didn't feel the movie did the book justice but the scenes fighting the marlin are pretty impressive.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen was pretty decent.

Jaws, followed by Old Man & the Sea, then Captain Courageous for 3rd. Some of the old black & white narrated fishing documentaries narrartives are more fantasy than documentary. This one I found from the 40's is so completely fictional its almost laughable it werent so completely f-d up! Some pretty crazy and stupid footage though!

Yep, quite a few mistakes but still interesting. I added it to the "Favorite Videos" message board.

Yes, it does have some mistakes but still an interesting video. I've added it to the "Favorite Videos" message board.
