The first film for F3T that TFFF is previewing for the Fly Fishing Film Tour in Austin is The Legend of Casa Mar. This film was filmed, edited, and produced by Jesse Males of Backwater Fly Fishing, with some supporting footage from Micah Baily.
Location: Costa Rica
The Legend of Casa Mar details the history of one of the most legendary tarpon fisheries on planet earth. The film dances back and forth from past to present with a breathtaking interview from fly fishing legend Peter Gorinsky, IGFA archive footage, and supporting footage taken during the films production in 2021. This film follows anglers Jesse Males, Mark Evans, Micah Baly and Thony Nunez as they uncover what the jungle has now been hiding for decades. Vibes of jungle exploration mixed with stunning tarpon action make this film run full-throttle from start to finish.
The Fly Fishing Film Tour is coming back to Austin on March 25! The event will be held at the Paramount Theatre. TFFF will be there (hopefully with a booth) and if you want to go, get your tickets here:
