It's Not Just About Fishing
3 September 2009 | by MuldwychSee all my reviews

A River Somewhere was Working Dog Production's next project following the success of the brilliant mockumentary 'Frontline' and the light-hearted underdog comedy of 'The Castle'. It's a similarly light-hearted documentary showcasing Rob Sitch and Tom Gleisner's great love of fly-fishing, following them around the world as they wet their lines in some of the most picturesque rivers and lakes on Earth, explore their surroundings and sample the local culture. The fish they catch is cooked according to a local recipe and we learn something of the history of their destinations, which include Bhutan, the US, Belize, Italy and of course Australia, to name but a few.

Sitch and Gleisner's down-to-earth personalities and gentle wit ideally suit the laid-back nature of the program. They present you with enough information to justify the 'documentary' label, but never is it laboured - the emphasis is firmly on fun and adventure. The production is greatly elevated by some excellent camera work, wonderful scenery and marvellous acoustic guitar score - almost a character unto itself. And I have to admit my mouth was watering by the end of every episode, compounded by an overwhelming desire for seafood. My only real complaint is that two series didn't seem enough, although I guess the format can only stretch so far and there's no shortage of ideal destinations. After all, there's always a river - somewhere.
