National Fisherman


The Rudderpost 

jesJes Hathaway is the editor in chief of National Fisherman magazine and NationalFisherman.com.

 

The editorial staff of National Fisherman has seen so many pitches and previews of fishing-inspired films and documentaries come over the transom in the last year that we keep half-jokingly tossing around the idea of hosting a film festival.

All kidding aside, it's great to see the industry reaching out to the masses via this influential and moving medium.

In the upcoming December issue of National Fisherman, be sure to read our review of "The Fish Belong to the People," a documentary of the New England groundfish fleet.

In the meantime, if you get the chance to see the film, don't miss it!

Until then, get your fishing film fix with this short video by John Mangiapane Jr., the son of a San Diego swordfisherman, "My Father the Fisherman." (John Sr.'s delicious recipe for sardine spaghetti is featured in our July issue Galley Watch, p. 13.)
