Anyone who's followed 1000 Words every Sunday knows that I am fascinated by Hollywood's portrayal of fishing. I am sometimes asked what the worst portrayal of fishing I've ever seen on TV or film.
I offer for evidence Roger Moore as The Saint in the 1963 episode "The Effete Angler." The plot is secondary to the actual action, but it revolves around Moore's character Simon Templar solving a crime in Miami by…fishing.
So ends the worst fishing scene in the history of cinema. But fish still play an important role. No joke--this is where the criminals hide the stolen jewels.

So…anyone think of a WORSE depiction than this?
