Fisherman Oliver White’s life reads like a storybook. Hand-plucked to work for a high-power financial firm while he was a fishing guide, he went on to pursue a dream in the Bahamas, narrowly escape death and build a nonprofit [] that takes him around the world using fly fishing to help indigenous communities protect water. A Thousand Casts follows this philosopher and outdoorsman to the Kingdom of Bhutan, where the royal family has invited him to find a mythical fish on the brink of extinction. Does Oliver have “a golden horseshoe up his ass,” or does he possess a depth of character that’s rare in today’s world? The answer reveals itself with each cast.”
