The Catch (2019)

Short, Folk Tale   |   6 Mins.

Sometimes, it really is just a fish story...

Narrated by the wonderfully talented, David Hollenback, The Catch tells the sorted tale of a fisherman who finds himself in a peculiar situation while trying to reel in that one-of-a-kind catch every angler dreams of...

Fun Fact: The boat featured in The Catch is aptly named The Roger Van Patton after its previous owner, Roger Van Patton, who sold the boat to me at a discount so long as it retained his namesake. It was also featured in a weather promo for NewsChannel 9 - WATCH
