From the MeatEater team, Das Boat is a series of short films that follow a 50-year-old aluminum hull boat as it’s towed all over the Southeast. In this first installment, host Steven Rinella meets up with fly-fishing guide JT Van Zandt in Rockport, Texas, to sight-fish for redfish. The whole episode is steeped in nostalgia, good conversation, and a delicious haul.
