Knight and Rummel are uncompromising in what they choose to cover. Like most fly fisherman, they mask their obsession with other pursuits, but not always well. Their films Red Gold, Eastern Rises, and DamNation examined topics—salmon fisheries, fishing bums, and dams—that weren’t exactly sexy. The duo brought attention to all of them, forcing people to care because of their ability to visually tell a story. It’d be no surprise to find Knight and Rummel somewhere on a Colorado stream with their lines taught to jumping trout. The fish probably feel like they owe them one.
