All anglers of all fly fishing interests are sure to get giddy over the film, Connect, by Confluence Films.
Released in 2011, Connect surely has staying power, as the film documents 12 anglers as they pursue some of angling’s most exciting fish in a diversity of locations including, Yellowstone, Alaska, Maine, Cuba, Japan, and Africa. Although they aren’t necessarily a secret, such ventures as tigerfish in Africa and stripers in Maine are quite underrated and rarely highlighted in magazines and DVDs. In the case of Connect, viewers receive a healthy dose of these fly fishing exploits in beautiful video form.
Another notable destination in the film is Cuba, a mystery for most (from the States, at least). Cuba, of course, is shrouded in Cold War mystery and for non-scholars is likely understood through combinations of Hollywood films, propaganda, controversy, and reality. Such understandings immediately become irrelevant as the Cuban saltwater flats frontier is explored via the fly. Taking the viewer along for the ride, the fish-loving spectator cannot help but become enthused.
Connect is available on DVD and can be found on the Confluence Films website by clicking here.
