Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

In the football movie, "Rudy" (actually a pretty good movie), about 17 minutes into the movie, there is a bar scene where the hero and his friend are talking.

On the wall behind the bar in the background is a quite respectable mounted largemouth, and just beneath it as a *humongous* mounted bluegill. It may have been pursuing the bass with intent to eat it when it was caught :-)

Well it is a underdog movie.
Wow, who would notice something like that. Awesome!

At the front of all movies is a bluegill fisherman - float fishing with a cane pole - a thing of beauty.
They altered though in a couple of movies and I hope the float fishing boy on the moon is not going away...
 I know it's not a movie but check out a Merle Haggard song "The Way I Am".   One line goes "Wish I were down on some blue bayou bamboo cane stuck in the the sand".  The next line mentions seeing that bobber dancing, He is clearly bluegill fishing.  It's the song I sing when I have to work instead of fish.
I watched The Magnificent Seven today, the movie with Yul Brenner, because it's raining and 35 degrees. One of the characters catches fish in a stream with his hand [movie magic]. The fish look like shell crackers, in the next scene a nice stringer of what look like bluegill is hanging in a tree.  Check it out next time its on.
Wow, I love this discussion!  I'm featuring it.  Keep 'em coming.
In at least one Dreamworks movie, the boy fishing from the moon is fly fishing - my favorite version! :)
what makes you think he's fly fishing, looks like he's cane fishing to me.
What makes me think the moon boy was fly fishing? The false casts and the loop unrolling an the "water" in front of him :-)

My 8-year old actually picked up on it before I did, shouting "Hey, he's fly fishing!" I wound it back to check, and sure enough, he was.

I spotted what is probably an awfully big "dryfly" in the Dreamworks animation - er not.

The Dreamworks logo is live bait fishing.

 

I do believe he is bluegill fishing, but definitely he prefers:

1. A cane pole

2. No Reel

3. A chubby float

Dreamworks Pictures Animation

Ah, but that's only one version of the animation. In at least one of them, he is most definitely fly casting.  Sometime on the other side of tax day I'll have to start going through my kids' movies and Netflix streaming to see if I can find which one(s) have the fly fishing version.

 

That said, it could still technically be live bait. I've been known to fish a red worm with an indicator on a fly rod <g>

The only DreamWorks logo I've seen in the boy cane polein' from the moon. It's possible the folks at DreamWorks have tinkered around with the logo from time to time - I do it with my own.

But there is a pretty fast rule in the marketing/branding segment of business, i.e, "Do not monkey around with your logo once it is established." Nike, Coca-Cola and Miller Beer* know this.

Consistency is the key to delivering your branding message, and it is all very psychological in nature. Even subtle changes are noted by the end viewer with suspicion.

Im sure you have spotted a difference in the DW logo, and you seem determined to prove it. That's good; I'd like to see it. I used to use a fly rod in non-flyfishing ways. So I can relate to your point.

But I think it's safe to say, for now, that the DW Studios logo is boy/moon/cane pole/bobber. He's surely fishing for bluegill.

 

* OFF-TOPIC: Miller Brewing's "High Life" Beer features the "Girl In The Moon" logo, and has for decades. It was even seen as 'nose art' on B-17's during WWII. It is one of my favorite branding logos and while the frolicsome girl in the moon isn't fishing - she IS holding forth a frothy glass of beer. And THAT, my friends, is a good thing.
