Fly Fishing Feature Friday
In this Fly Fishing Feature Friday I would be remiss at taking you a step forward without first looking in the rear view mirror. What am I talking about, simply put, GeoBass and Motiv fishing. While most would agree lifes not the destination, its about the journey, the these guy have taken life and fly fishing up another notch. Popping the cork a decade ago in conjunction with a few other outlets Motiv Fishing they involved us with the Trout Bum series. The basics, send guys beyond the reach of what a normal fisherman can do or go on a regular basis. Into the farthest reaches they dig to our piscatorial delight they fofil. While I will cover the Trout Bum series in a future article, bear with me while Fast Forward 5 years to 2010, where I feel the fly fishing and sponsor communities break out their roles of pennies and let these guys open up Pandora’s box. While there are many many fly fishing films out there which surpass and rival the back drop or scenic quality, there are very few out there that allow us to ride along vicariously through the lens. The Geofish film excerpt shown below allows all of us to set life’s responsibilities aside and peruse our passion.
Geofish was a hit with fly fishing enthusiast and fisherman alike and from it born the GeoBass series with great sponsors such as Costa and Patagonia backing them they provide hours and hours of entertainment.
Speaking of Entertainment F3T is right around the corner for us in Oklahoma. @Russellboone clear your sced for March 22, 2016 – 7:00pm at th eWIll ROgers Theater in OKC. F3T is featuring some great films this year, one being Finding Fontinalis which is An old gaucho’s tale inspired the search for a new world-record brook trout; but the water, landscape and the culture surrounding it became the impetus to conserve and protect it all. This F3T cut of Finding Fontinalis, a new feature film from Travis Lowe (coming fall 2016) takes you to the heart of Patagonia and one of the last remaining, world class brook trout fisheries. Featuring Bart Bonime, Bryan Gregson, Agustin Fox and Yvon Chouinard, Finding Fontinalis exposes you to both jaw-dropping landscapes and hook-jawed trout.
And you can hear Travis on last weeks Whiskey and Water
