Together, Chris and Jim started Confluence Films and produced the world famous 2008 fly fishing movie "DRIFT". Then creating yet another magical fly fishing masterpiece this year, Confluence Films looks to have produced what could be the best fly fishing movie ever made. Loaded with off the chart fly fishing porn, "RISE" is 70 minutes long and was shot on professional 16mm movie film, and then digitally mastered in HD! Los Roques, Florida Keys, Idahos - Henry's Fork, Alaska, New Orleans, and Patagonia wrap up all the destinations in this stellar fly flick! My buddy Capt Joel Dickey and I are hosting and fishing the Florida Keys Tarpon segment of this movie, and I have heard that this could be the best tarpon footage ever captured on film.
