Salmon Fishing In The Yemen (2011)

A visionary sheik believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert.

Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible. (Read More)
