Providence: Fly Fishing Film Premiere

In the fifth full-length fly fishing film from Confluence’s Chris Patterson and Jim Klug, Yellow Dog Flyfishing’s Camille Egdorf, and South African guides Gerhard Laubscher and Tim Babich team up for an amazing journey and a return to the remote and uninhabited Seychelles atoll of Providence. The new film chronicles the first trip back to Providence Atoll since the waters were closed to all fishermen and boat access in 2010 due to the threats and activities of pirates operating out of Somalia. The team returned in October of 2015, spending three weeks exploring the atoll and fishing for multiple flats species including giant trevally, bluefin trevally, bumphead parrotfish, bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, milkfish and more. An amazing story of adventure, piracy, challenging fish, the history of the area and untouched flats.

Tickets are $15 per person. Proceeds will benefit the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.  Purchase tickets by clicking HERE.
