Trailer: Life, Death, and Fly Fishing in “Recapture”

A teaser has debuted for a new fly fishing film that offers a compelling story of love, loss, and the pursuit of angling passion. Along with the teaser, a Kickstarter campaign has announced to bring the film to fruition.

From the filmmaker:

“He was five years old when his dad took him fly-fishing for the first time. Father and son, side-by-side; waist deep in waders with fly-rod in hand along the upper Delaware and Lake Ontario tributary rivers. Together they dreamed of the perfect places to cast: Virginia for huge musky fishing; Michigan for carp; Connecticut for the cinder worm hatch; Cape cod and Montauk for striped bass, bluefish and false albacore.

Eleven short years later his father was diagnosed with Leukemia. After going through a round of treatments and being told his cancer had gone into remission, the family was shocked by his sudden death. For two years Mike could not bare to cast without his best fishing buddy.

Now, eight years after his loss, Mike and a few of his closest friends are going to Virginia, Michigan, Connecticut, Cape Cod and Montauk to fulfill the dreams of a father and son. Along the journey Mike will recapture the years he had on the rivers with his father and create new memories with the friends he brings along for the trip.”
