FLY FISHING FILM TOUR Off the Grid Studios: Filmed on location in Dubai
I am pleased to announce the trailer for the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour film, Dubai on the Fly has just dropped. This is a film created by our collective group, Off The Grid Studios. It was great to spend time working with such an inspiring story with an incredible group of individuals.
DUBAI ON THE FLY || FILM The tallest skyscrapers, the fastest cars, the fanciest restaurants and the most exclusive resorts and clubs. When westerners think of Dubai, fishing is about the last thing we imagine, if we think of it at all. But at the heart of this fast, modern city lies a shockingly intact traditional fishing culture alongside a budding fly angling industry. Acting as the Anthony Bourdain of this culture-and-recreation oriented film is Colorado-based angler and film veteran Frank Smethurst. Joining with Captain Nick Bowles and Emirati angler Mohammed Al Faour, Frank unveils familiar and unexpected sides of this iconic city, in the desert and on the water.
This new media project, over two years in the making, will premier in the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour and travel the globe to festivals worldwide. The film will hit more than 140 cities in the United States alone.
