Dead men have no secrets, but how about dead fish? Fin Rising is a black comedy with a touch of mystery and romance set in Ireland at the turn of the millennium. The residents, guests and staff of Blackthorn Hall, including Fin McGrath, the working-class hero of the story, gather for their yearly dinner, and end up engaging in a surprise winner-takes-all fishing competition at the estate's lake. But does the winner really win? It’s a story about love, secrets, grief, longing, ambition, loyalty, the therapeutic benefits of fly fishing, and the influence people, (and fish) can have even beyond death.
