Drift: Fly Fishing Film Review

Monday, February 24, 2014 2 Comments

This is the film that started me on my addiction to "fish porn" and in many ways highly influenced the subsequent wave of fly fishing films industry wide. From Confluence Films in 2008, Drift is still a great film and if you haven't seen it or own it, it is worth picking up. The film travels first to Oregon's Deschutes River in pursuit of Steelhead on a Spey Rod, then moves to Belize for Permit, to a variety of Western Tailwaters, the Bahamas chasing Bones, and finally to the unlikely Kashmir Mountains. Had you told me in 2008 I would travel to two of the locations featured in this film (Abaco, Bahama's & The Frying Pan), let alone be confidently fly fishing I would have thought you were crazy. Watching now I look at these places with longing for my return, but until then I have the film and its a damn good one. Here is the link to the trailer.
