92 in the shade

If you’ve ever considered “chucking it all” and moving to the tropics to start a charter business. Then more than likely someone probably gave you the advice to read or watch “92 in the shade”. A tale of a young drifter hippie played by Peter Fonda whom returns to his home town in the Florida Keys and starts his flats fishing charter company. He quickly learns that old captains can be as possessive as a pit-bull with a ham bone. This film is classic 1970s everything. The old flats boats made of fiberglass and plywood. The “jive” talk, shag carpet, and over-all peace, love, and chicken grease feel. It also happens to be extremely funny. Having grown up and spent alot of time around South Florida and it’s fishing & diving community there are some closely drawn similarities to that era. This is a classic saltwater fishing movie and the last film ever produce by Thomas McGuane. It should be apart of every saltwater flats fishing enthusiast movie library.
