Interview BTS: Tom Rosenbauer & Dan Davala for Orvis promo

This past Friday, TwoFisted Heart shot an interview of Orvis’ own Tom Rosenbauer (the 2011 Angler of the Year) and Dan Davala (Orvis fly shop manager) for a fly fishing promo we are putting together. It was great getting to meet Tom Rosenbauer. We loved hearing his stories and seeing his passion for fly fishing come alive on camera. Of course we loved getting a chance to interview Dan Davala again. He was one of the anglers featured in our film Urban Lines.

Below are some behind the scenes images from that interview.

The Film: Urban Lines


TwoFisted Heart Productions is partnering with Freestone Entertainment to create a film on the tidal Potomac River that counters common stigmas and stereotypes of fly fishing. Four fly fishermen in Washington, D.C. demonstrate that fly fishing is more than an individual pursuit of the catch, more than once-a-year or once-in-a-lifetime trips out West or to exotic locations abroad. In an unlikely setting of concrete vistas, population density and traffic nightmares, the Potomac River proves that adventure and epic fishing are available to everyone on a daily basis. D.C. fly fishermen have embraced that concept through an online community that provides a 21st century, Web 2.0 take on passionately protecting our water resources for the future and connecting with the people around us. It’s about thinking globally and fishing locally. Otherwise, it’s just another sport.
