Series Description: THE NEW FLY FISHER teaches viewers everything they need to know about this popular pastime.

These hosts offer clear and concise explanations of important nuances in fly-fishing while underwater footage and animated sequences elucidate a specific point or tactic. This season also emphasizes entomology and ecology as aquatic biologists explain the life cycles of specific insects, crustaceans and fish. Captivating high-definition images, including aerial shots of rivers, mountains and lakes, reveal the majestic beauty of landscapes and wildlife throughout North America's wilderness. This season, episode locations include: Cape Cod, Mass.; Red Deer, Alberta; McKenzie River, Labrador; West Yellowstone, Mont. and Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland.
