RISE Fly Fishing Film Festival Singapore #1

The largest fly fishing film festival in the world is coming to Singapore this September. Four short films have been selected for this festival:

1. Atlanticus

Atlanticus picks up where many Tarpon stories leave off. This is not the familiar tale of migrations, worms, or flats. Rather, this film follows a group of friends on an incredible journey from the beaches of Gabon, through Mexico, and deep into Central America.

Our team wanders off the beaten path to find Tarpon in the most unusual places. This adventure is an emotional ride with lessons in persistence, failure, and ultimately discovery. Accompany us as we fish a locust hatch of plague proportions, search for monsters over 120 miles from the ocean, and attempt something nearly impossible… to catch a Tarpon on foot.

After several years in production, Atlanticus is heading to the big screen and touring with the 2018 RISE Tour. The latest installment from Director/Producer Grant Wiswell, Creative Director Matt Orton, and Castaway Films is sure to make you think differently about the mighty Megalops. Atlanticus stars Jeff Currier, Jako Lucas, Neville Orsmond, Drew Miller, Dr. Andy Danylchuk, Aaron Ford, and many more.

2. Andranangoo
Set on the Tiwi Islands in Northern Australia and featuring Shannon Kitchener and Jacob Parmigiani, the film explores the amazing fly fishing on Goose Creek (Andranangoo) for the legendary barramundi and saratoga. It also sheds some light on an exciting project which is giving the Indigenous youth of the island an opportunity to pursue their passions.

3. Three Runs
The movie “Three Runs” is about the dream of many fly fishermen to catch an Atlantic salmon. Fly fishing’s history grows with each passing day as new species and the techniques to catch them evolve. It is indisputable that its history lies in the pursuit of wild brown trout and Atlantic salmon in the UK. Consequently, no matter where you are from, where you began your fly fishing career or on what species, the desire to understand and catch an Atlantic salmon is always intriguing. Felix Stintzing, Stephan Dombaj of “Fly Fishing Nation” and the rest of the team show in their film that there is hope to catch healthy salmon in an intact ecosystem on the Ponoi River in Russia.

4. Pure Fly NZ - Golden Bay Kingfish
Pure Fly NZ is an 8 part series featuring a range of talented and charismatic Kiwi fly fishing enthusiasts, shot throughout New Zealand. This film features the flats fishery in Golden Bay situated at the top end of the South Island
