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.
