"Finding Fontinalis" has won the Drake Magazine's 2017 Video Award for Best Conservation Award. Thanks to everyone involved and all the sponsors. Especially like to thank Bart Bonime, Agustine Fox and Bryan Gregson for all their work. Cheers to the Drake for recognizing the film's endeavour to support conservation around the world.
This morning I spoke with Gord Ellis about my new film "Finding Fontinalis" on CBC Radio in Thunder Bay. I met Gord two years ago in Nipigon a sleep little hamlet outside of Thunder Bay. Gord is an outdoor journalist who also guides sometimes on the Nipigon River, where over 100 years ago JW Cook caught his 14.5lb world record brook trout.
It's been 3 years since I released "Thai One On". Now for 2016 we are getting ready to unleash a special "festival" cut of my new film "Finding Fontinalis" for the 2016 Costa Fly Fishing Film Tour. Stay tuned for more. Big thanks to the film's sponsors, first of all Patagonia, Costa, Yeti as well as Sage and Rio. This film could not have been made with out the support from Agustin Fox and everyone at Las Pampas Lodge. Of course it never would have even got started without Yellow Dog photographer Bryan Gregson. Last but not least executive producer Bart Bonime, Director of Fish at Patagonia. Without Bart's tireless work this film would never have been achieved.
