The Rise Fly Fishing Film Festival has made a successful tour along many European cities and will make a stop in The Netherlands as well on the 15th of May.
The films that can be seen in the cinema in Rotterdam are:
The movie “Three Runs” is about the dream of many fly fishermen to catch an Atlantic salmon. Fly fishing’s history grows with each passing day as new species and the techniques to catch them evolve. It is indisputable that its history lies in the pursuit of wild brown trout and Atlantic salmon in the UK. Consequently, no matter where you are from, where you began your fly fishing career or on what species, the desire to understand and catch an Atlantic salmon is always intriguing. Felix Stintzing, Stephan Dombaj of “Fly Fishing Nation” and the rest of the team show in their film that there is hope to catch healthy salmon in an intact ecosystem on the Ponoi River in Russia.
For the film “Andranangoo” by Nick Reygaert, Gin-Clear Media, the Tiwi Islands have served as a venue in Australia. Reygaert accepted the invitation from Guy Reynolds who asked him to help with his social project “The Tiwi Garden Project” at the last RISE. It is now Australia’s largest, sustainable garden. This offers especially the children of Tiwi the possibility of a regulated and healthy way of life, as well as a chance for future work. Nick and his team take over the task of training the junior guides in fly fishing for barra and saratoga, two iconic Australian fish species.
Fly Fishing is serious business!! But where do you draw the line between passion and abnormal ambition? In this satire, a fly-fisherman reaches his mental boundaries while looking for his first Marble Trout in Slovenia – outcome unknown! A story about pride, blasphemy and… beer!
