Shot in Mexico, Alaska, British Columbia, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Florida, Northwest Territories, and a few surprise locations, this collection of films is about places that are off the beaten path. It is about people that live the fly fishing lifestyle, not to be a name, but because fly fishing is part of their soul. It is about unspoken hatches, unknown fish, and rivers that will go unnamed.
Here’s R.A’s own description of the new DVD:
“Two years on the road filming in an assortment of locations around the world. All of the films are connected by a common theme: there are places that, for our crew, were out of the ordinary. We basically tried to avoid as many of the “Big Name” waters, hatches and fishing grounds as we could. We do visit a few regions that are by no means off the beaten path, but try to show them in a different light. All said and done, the DVD boasts over two hours of fly fishing content – almost too much fish for the non-diehard. Here’s what’s on the disc:
Off the Grid:
The “title track,” so to speak, is the hour-long master cut that ties all of the major locations and segments into a somewhat cohesive story.
If you spend 9 days on bluewater boats in the middle of the ocean, off the coast of Guatemala, fishing with the best captains, crews and anglers in the world – it turns out you get a ton of killer Marlin and Sailfish content. Bluewater is a short film about chasing some of the largest and fastest fish in the sea – with a fly rod in hand.
With segments featuring brookies in Michigan, carp in the Great Lakes and pike and smallies in Wisconsin Rivers – this film offers a brief look into a few of the fishing opportunities in the Midwest.
We’ve included over a dozen short films – Drake Magazine award winners, instrumental action cuts and other short stories.
Some people would go so far as to call it “Fishporn.” We’re not really sure what it is – except for a 15 minute montage/collage of our favorite
fishing segments and clips, cut to music. What we would loop at a party or while tying flies.
We’ve never really consciously filmed any fly tying instructionals, but low and behold, we ended up with three segments as a result of all the filming. Nothing fancy, just three very gifted tiers showing you their favorite patterns.
