FINDING FONTINALIS | FLY FISHING FILM TOUR CUT F3T Film Trout 2016
Cinema Digital just released a cut of a new feature film titled Finding Fontinals. The film cut debuts on the 2016 F3T: Fly Fishing Film Tour. Check out the teaser and see the special cut of the film at a F3T screening nearest you.
“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.”
In the spring of March 2013 a small group set off on an angling adventure to remote inner regions of Patagonia, Argentina. While there our group was invited to help rope and brand calfs with the local gauchos, a rare and special offer. It was a great experience shared by all… one nobody will forget.
MOTION SLIDESHOW | ARGENTINA 2013 Las Pampas Lodge, Argentina
I’m a fan of slideshows, but I do get restless with them quickly. When I was asked to put together a photo slideshow I called Sean McCormick to spruce it up a little. Here are just a few of the many images from a recent trip to Argentina. It’s something a little different; perhaps you’ll like it.
A few of these small backcountry river systems have seen little anglers. The hikes can be quite long and somewhat grueling but all worth every step. One particular spring creek held 6 pound browns and was only 5 feet wide. Mouse patterns were very deadly in most of these types of areas. The fish were feisty and the eats were explosive. It was truly a fantastic trip, one I’ll never forget. I can’t wait to go back next year.
