As a father of two young girls, I can't imagine a greater sense of accomplishment than knowing that as I have raised my children, I have led them through a life worth living, as best I am able. Perhaps the only thing that could add to that sense is lacking any doubt that my children see it that way too. Camille Egdorf, who -- since she was a toddler -- has spent her summers on the banks of Alaska's famed Nushagak River, must leave few such doubts in the minds of her parents as she continues to celebrate and share the traditions and experiences she and her family have built throughout several decades in Alaska's wilderness.
Following the 2011 season, Camille released a short, immensely entertaining 22-minute video entitled Forget Me Knot, which provided some breathtaking footage and a glimpse into the life of the Egdorf's and their staff as they made their way from opening camp in June to the last days of Summer in September. In 2012, Camille gathered more footage and has compiled the lot into a film that, according its description "captures the wildlife, fishing and a way of life that has been carried on in Alaska for over thirty years. [It is] a story about a fly fishing family who's summers are spent in remote Alaska, sharing and experiencing the wilds of the North."
Unbroken, as the film is titled, has been officially selected to the International Fly Fishing Film Festival and will be screened at each of the festival's stops. Be sure to check out the trailer for Camille's film below, and head to the IF4 home page for more information on the tour.
