We wanted to make a film about fly fishing, but one wasn’t really about catching fish. There’s so much more to a fishing trip than hook sets and hero shots with big fish, and we didn’t really see films about that. Guides are probably the hardest working folks in fly fishing, and a great guide can make any trip a memorable one. We wanted to tell a story about guides that was more than just the client’s experience on the water — we wanted to know what makes them do what they do every day. That’s what “Through the Guides” is about.
Through the Guides was produced by The Noble Lab.
