Video Review: "Eastern Rises"

November 22, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Kelly Cordes reviews the new DVD “Eastern Rises” on Patagonia’s “The Cleanest Line” blog. Though not a fly fisher and someone who admittedly didn’t “get it,” Cordes says the movie has opened his eyes.
“While watching the guys go to Kamchatka to try to catch fish, it seemed obvious that everything they did, every worthless thing – just like every worthless move and nonsensical thing I do climbing or friends do skiing or surfing – meant nothing in itself or to the outside world. But it’s their passion, and that means something.”
