Redhorse: A Cahaba River Tradition (airing at 6pm CST)
Six Samford University students embark on an expedition with Professor Jim Brown to learn the traditional way to snare River Redhorse fish? (They won’t take a hook.) Samford students who have taken Dr. Brown's folklore class will be familiar with the outdoor activity of roping the redhorse in their natural habitat along the Cahaba River. The documentary takes you along the journey of the Film Production students attempting to find the redhorse fish and successfully rope them out of the water. This documentary was created by Samford film students and sponsored by Samford SGA and Samford Journalism and Mass Communication. Cahaba River Society thanks Professor Brown and Samford for allowing this special showing for Fry-Down 2020.
