Can Ewen McGregor Actually Fish the Fly?

In a recent interview on BBC TV, actor Ewen McGregor told us that before the movie "Fly Fishing in the Yemen" that he had never actually tried fly fishing. So, did he learn anything on the set? Take a look and find out:






In the newly released movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Ewan McGregor plays Dr. Alfred Jones, a fisheries expert approached on behalf of a Yemeni sheik to bring the sport of fly-fishing to the desert. Rated 7 stars by the users of imdb.com, this movie is more romantic comedy than fishing adventure or, if you prefer,  "more chick-flick, than wrist-flick".
