QUEENFISH DUBAI | THIS IS FLY MAGAZINE

QUEENFISH DUBAI
This is Fly :: Issue No 67 

The new issue of This Is Fly dropped, and it’s great to see a feature on Dubai on the Fly make the cover. Frank Smethurst and I had the opportunity to sit down and talk about the experience of fly fishing in Dubai, and this interview is included in the issue along with many photos from Dubai.

Big thanks to RA Beattie for capturing this photo of me with a mighty queen on the cover. It’s certainly a big surprise! It’s always odd seeing myself in photos, and I’m much more comfortable on the other side of the lens. And yes, the Off the Grid Studios team kept this from me as they know I would have protested! Ha — Thanks, team!

DUBAI ON THE FLY | FULL-LENGTH FEATURE NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON

DUBAI ON THE FLY
Off the Grid Studios

Off the Grid Studios is pleased to announce the release of the full-length cut of their film “Dubai on the Fly.” Available now on Amazon channel and Vimeo, “Dubai on the Fly” is the culmination of two trips to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates by the Off the Grid Studios team.

In “Dubai on the Fly,” Colorado angler Frank Smethurst joins Dubai-based Captain Nick Bowles and Emirati angler Mohammed Al Faour on a journey through the vibrant city of Dubai. Within the modern metropolis, the anglers encounter culture and tradition alongside skyscrapers and thriving industry. And while all enjoy exploring the city and the surrounding desert, the waters of Dubai are the main attraction, and queenfish are the specie of interest.

“Dubai on the Fly” was an official selection of the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour and appeared in more than 170 cities, all while drawing widespread acclaim. “Dubai on the Fly” received attention from numerous popular blogs as well as magazines Conde Nast Traveler, Fly Fisherman Magazine, Gray’s Sporting Journal, The Stonefly Magazine, The Mission Magazine and most recently with a cover shot and 14-page spread in This is Fly Magazine!

Looking back over the past +1 year of production, one of Napoleon’s quotes rings true for this project, “Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” This project was a tremendous amount of work but was equally gratifying. It would not be possible without the teamwork from such an outstanding group of dedicated people. Thank you all for lending your dedication, creativity, and passion. Here’s to the next round!

Built For Your Story

A few months ago we headed down to Port O’Connor Texas, to team up with Drift Media Productions for a video and photo combo shoot. We were hired to photograph a rollout campaign for a new angling brand, Dagon Apparel Company. It was a fantastic few days of redfish, eating shrimp and enjoying the Texas coast. Here are a few images from the shoot.
