Grant Wiswell, of Castaway Films, and the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) just released two of our favorite films, Atlanticus and Water is Life to stream free of charge. Both films are featured in the above video and pair well with a nice bottle of Fat Tire or some Frigate Reserve on the rocks!
“Atlanticus picks up where many Tarpon stories leave off. This is not the familiar tale of migrations, worms, or flats. Rather, this film follows a group of friends on an incredible journey from the beaches of Gabon, through Mexico, and deep into Central America.
Our team wanders off the beaten path to find Tarpon in the most unusual places. This adventure is an emotional ride with lessons in persistence, failure, and ultimately discovery. Accompany us as we fish a locust hatch of plague proportions, search for monsters over 120 miles from the ocean, and attempt something nearly impossible… to catch a Tarpon on foot.
After several years in production, Atlanticus is heading to the big screen and touring with the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour. The latest installment from Director/Producer Grant Wiswell, Creative Director Matt Orton, and Castaway Films is sure to make you think differently about the mighty Megalops. Atlanticus stars Jeff Currier, Jako Lucas, Neville Orsmond, Drew Miller, Dr. Andy Danylchuk, Aaron Ford, and many more.”
About Water is Life:
Filmmaker Grant Wiswell has spent the last two years circling the globe attempting to showcase how water connects three incredibly diverse fisheries while at the same time capturing the best fishing available in each location. On both counts, he has succeeded in spades. From Argentina’s Jurassic Lake and 30dz rainbows that will readily eat a dry fly to the bull-headed GTs of the Seychelles and the carnivorous tigerfish of the Zambezi, this film contains some of the most remarkable fishing ever caught on film.
