The Catskill Mountains are the birthplace of American dry-fly fishing. The famed Beaverkill, Upper Delaware, Neversink, and Willowemac rivers are pristine waters with incredibly unique bug life, and legendary fly fishermen have found home on their banks. In Integrity of the Catch, this short film from Bullrush Films and Catskill Brewery, they share why the Fly Fishing Center and Museum is a focal point for the community as they work to preserve the tradition and history of the sport. You can follow the museum on Facebook here and Bullrush on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
