"Two enthusiastic devotees of the art of Izaak Walton take us into the picturesque highlands of Ontario - a region of virgin forests and myriad waterways - and we see them whipping the clear sparkling brooks to lure the fighting speckled trout. We see the crimson spotted battlers lashing out at the lures and envision of the suspense of the anglers themselves as the fish leap and thresh to win clear. As a backgound for this thrilling action we have the natural beauty of the deep woods of northern Ontario at their best."
