Watcher Wednesday – Find A Trout

| November 29, 2017

Drop That Trout Movie Reference

So I have two things for you to watch this Wednesday – for deep reference to freshwater trout.

The first is a lunch scene where Jeff Bidges and his Texas Ranger partner are sitting down in a small town for a meal. The movie is, “Hell or High Water.”

WHAT DON’T YOU WANT?

The second scene, not nearly as old as the one from the “Hell or High Water” movie, comes from the Netflix series “Godless,” and I just saw the fish episode last night.

BURNING WITH TROUT

When the current main bad guy Jeff Daniels is in a tight fix and about to meet his end (not the one he’s seen), a fellow bad guy rescues him. “What took you so long?” Daniels asks. “The river was afire with fish. All you had to do was ask, and they’d bite.” Episode 5 (I think?). I rolled when I heard that; somebody in that production obviously fishes that Godless area on the Colorado-New Mexico borderlands.
