About the film:
Confluence Films, the creators of Connect, Drift, and Rise, are proud to introduce their fourth feature-length movie - "WAYPOINTS."
Starting with the release of DRIFT in 2008, RISE in 2009 and CONNECT in 2011, Confluence Films has always offered early screenings of their films to entities and organizations that were willing to screen the films in the right venues in a professional, high-quality manner, and give a large portion of the proceeds back to a local or regional fisheries-based conservation entity or project. Through this program, Confluence has helped raise close to $200,000.00 for conservation with their first three films over the past five years.
Filming throughout the year has taken place on St. Brandon’s Atoll in the Indian Ocean, in the jungles of Venezuela for payara, in Patagonian Chile, in India and Nepal for Golden Mahseer, and in Southeast Alaska for spring steelhead. As with Drift, Rise and Connect, the new film project is the result of a partnership by Director and Cinematographer Chris Patterson of Warren Miller Entertainment and Executive Producer and Writer Jim Klug of Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.
Anglers featured in the new film include Dan “Rooster” Leavens, Oliver White, Chris Yrazabal, Greg Bricker, Brett Seng, Jeff Currier, Wil Flack, Travis Peterson, and the guides of Flycastaway of South Africa. Title sponsors of “Waypoints” include Simms Fishing Products, Costa Del Mar, Hatch Reels, Yeti Coolers and Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.
"An incredible travel-logue-style fishing film that truly showcases not only the fly fishing lifestyle, but the journey itself as seen through the eyes of anglers Oliver White, Jeff Currier, Greg Bricker, Gerhard Laubscher, Rooster Leavens, and several other interesting and unique characters"
