Patagonia and friends release Finding Fontinalis film to aid conservation fundraising efforts

Film chases world record brook trout and more on the other side of the world

Fishing records are kind of lame. You know, IGFA length records, tippet class records and so on? What species of fish you were able to haul in on what strand strength of monofilament doesn't tell us anything about the experience. Or the fish. Or the place. It might tell us something about why you're out there but, if it does, it probably tells us stuff we'd rather not know. As a general rule, fishing records don't tell us anything of value at all, except maybe that a lot of people are missing the point. But, as is the case with any rule, there are exceptions.

Corazon is another Fly Fishing Film Tour highlight

Film is a story of unlikely friendship forged across cultures over a common obsession with tarpon

Corazon is another in a bevy of solid films on this year's Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T). Directed by R.A. Beattie and filmed by Beattie and photographer Bryan Gregson, the film takes viewers to the tiny island of Holbox, which sits just offshore of the Mexico mainland, in search of tarpon and permit and quite a bit more.

120 Days, Convergence lead 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour lineup

Another fine lineup of films charges this year's F3T

If I'm being honest, the degree to which I tend to complement all things Felt Soul Media is becoming a little bit embarrassing. But the Colorado-based duo of Ben Knight and Travis Rummel have managed to do it again with a somewhat unexpected short film, titled 120 Days: Tarpon Season. Along with the latest from Conservation Hawks, Convergence, which we wrote about the other day, the two films serve to highlight another strong selection of films that F3T is showcasing on this year's tour.

New short film looks at what climate change means to angling families

Convergence, the latest in a series of films co-produced by Conservation Hawks and Conservation Media, looks at what our rapidly changing climate means to angling families. The film follows three different angling families; Hilary Hutcheson and her daughters Ella and Delaney; Travis Swartz (better known to most fly anglers as "Hank Patterson”); Simon Perkins, Els Van Woert and their daughter Pippa, and Pippa's grandfather (and Orvis CEO) Perk Perkins.

Tidewater Film - Marlin Fly fishing

Closer look: Tidewater

A new film about chasing marlin off the Virginia coast

Tidewater is a simple concept--your backyard, a half dozen or so fly rods, a couple of cameramen, your twin brother, a close friend, a massive boat, and some really big, really pissed off, and really hungry apex predators ready to steal your $1,500-dollar set up right from your hands. Bring them all together, mix well, and hold on for the adventure of a lifetime. This is what Brian and Colby Trow of Mossy Creek Fly Fishing did.
