Common Threads - A Thrive Visuals Production
Directed by Jay Siemens
Produced by Thrive Visuals
Mary Pettigrew is not your typical fly angler. As a 70 year old widow she brings more spunk to the sport of fly fishing than most others out there, making monster Pike on the fly look effortless. Alongside her family, Mary’s trips to Northern Saskatchewan have woven together a web of memories that will not be forgotten. As the next generation of family pick up the fly rod, the common thread amongst them continues to grow stronger.
Project Rainbow - A Hog Leg Fly Fishing Production
Directed by Ben Bortner
Produced by Hog Leg Fly Fishing Productions
While many people have heard of the Gunnison River that flows through the Black Canyon and Gunnison Gorge, not many people have heard the story of the Gunnison River Rainbow. The story of how, following the accidental introduction of whirling disease in 1993, these rainbows went from nearly 10,000 fish in a 2-mile stretch of river to only 86 fish a decade later. However, in recent years these fish have started to make a strong comeback. The resurgence of the Gunnison River Rainbow serves as a beacon of hope for other fisheries around North America that are feeling the impact of whirling disease.
Machaca - A Botanical Tale - Tropical Fly Collective
Directed by Tom Enderlin
Produced by Tropical Fly Collective
In the rainforests of Costa Rica there is a relationship that doesn’t happen anywhere else on the planet. The film tells the story of the relationship between the machaca, a vegetarian fish, and the diverse forest. The feeding behavior and fishing techniques can be easily identified with by trout fishermen the world over, but the machaca’s aggressive takes and exotic characteristics make them an adversary all their own. This film will introduce a species completely new and unique to the global fly fishing community in a light, fun, and adventurous fashion.
Expectations - A Van-O-White Production
This film follows four Alaskan fishing guides who have known each other for years and their mentor Will Blair. This motley crew arrives in the Bahamas to fish an island reportedly left unfished for close to two decades. Will Blair, a pioneer of the Kamchatckan Peninsula and its famed trout fishery, has teamed up with Phicol Wallace to open Lost Key Lodge in the southwestern Bahamas. Looking to understand this fishery better Will turns to Paul Nicoletti and his fellow guides to take a trip of a lifetime and explore this fishery further. Using his Sony camera Paul is able to capture the feel of a true exploratory trip and the bonds that can only come with years of fishing and living together. We the viewer join in the experience of being the first anglers to encounter these waters in decades. Sure to share some laughs and a few beers this group of 5 come together to fish an untouched island but in the process help remind us to have fun and look forward to the experience instead of always trying to fulfill expectations.
