      This entire series is a must-rent for anyone reading fearnwhiskey. Between
      the music, scenery and the unorthodox fishing situations John Lurie puts
      himself and his guests into, it's just non-stop entertainment. My favorite
      episode has him and Jim Jarmusch trying to fish for shark with a piece of
      cheese and a handgun, though the ice-fishing episode with Willem Dafoe may
      define my next few months.

      Did I mention the music? It's Lurie, goofy as always. The damn title track
      is as simple and catatonically catchy as is possible.

      out on the water,
      Carl Z.
