Catch 1 Films has released an exciting trailer for a film that features some unique fly fishing exploration.
From Catch 1 Films:
“Xplor is an exciting film project that places 2 fly anglers against the ocean. Part survival, part fishing, this film is a unique view into a simple yet challenging course. The trip will begin on the north side of Andros island and will cover some 130 odd miles of the islands uninhabited back country and nearshore reefs. All gear and rations will have to fit inside the small confines of a 17 foot flats skiff. All protein must be derived from the ocean and prepared at the established camp site outlaid at the start of the trip. We will move down the island in search or tarpon, permit, and bonefish as well as snapper and other near shore species. We will also be carrying a small assortment of dive gear that will enable us to gather food in that manner as well. All gamefish species will be released after DNA samples have been taken to help conservation research. We will not be able to re-provision during the length of our trip. Thank you for watching and hopefully SHARING, Xplor.”

More on this destination:
The Bahamas are a series of islands and cays located just off the southeast coast of Florida and north of Cuba. For U.S. anglers, the Bahamas are an easily accessible saltwater fly fishing destination with some of the best bonefishing in the world.
While anglers have access to barracuda, tarpon, permit, and deep water species, the bonefish are the greatest draw for most anglers. Found in good numbers and also double-digit weights, these bonefish can be pursued year-round, and there are even opportunities for do-it-yourself anglers who want to walk the flats alone.
Of the specific spots within the Bahamas, Grand Bahama, Andros Island, Joulters, Abaco, Long Island, Crooked Island, and Deep Water Cay are among the most targeted spots, and there are plenty of other locations for anglers to access as well.
