Salmon Fishing in the Yemen


Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
An wealthy Yemeni sheik loves trout fishing, and decides to set up a trout fishery in his native country.

So they head off to the Yemen to tackle Mission Impossible...

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIn the end, and despite my lack of vast fishing experience in using such a metaphor, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is akin to hooking a terrific game fish at first, only to have it then slip away and be replaced by something anyone could catch.
