Film: Fly Fishing for Queenfish in DUBAI ON THE FLY

Fly fishing for queenfish in Dubai! For many of us, the 2018 film DUBAI ON THE FLY was our introduction to an exciting species — queenfish. This full film is now available to watch online.

From Off the Grid Studios:

“The tallest skyscrapers, the fastest cars, the fanciest restaurants and the most exclusive resorts and clubs. When westerners think of Dubai, fishing is about the last thing we imagine, if we think of it at all. But at the heart of this fast, modern city lies a shockingly intact traditional fishing culture alongside a blooming fly angling industry. Acting as the Anthony Bourdain of this culture-and-recreation oriented film is Colorado-based angler and film veteran Frank Smethurst. Joining with Captain Nick Bowles and Emirati angler Mohammed Al Faour, Frank unveils familiar and unexpected sides of this iconic city, in the desert and on the water.

This film originally premiered at the 2018 Fly Fishing Film Tour.”
