The Tightest Line (Official Trailer)

Published on Dec 03, 2014 by Editor in chief

The Tightest Line, a film and webseries created & developed by filmmaker & photographer, Harrison Buck, explores the lives of North American fly fishing guides, the fish they pursue and the magnificent local environments in which they coexist. As the guided fishing industry shows increasing signs of decline, these guides aren’t content to sit idly by as the sport they love degrades into an overly sponsored, trophy fishing, rich old man’s club. They are fighting against this degradation on all fronts, whether it be introducing up-and-coming generations to the sport, finding new species with innovative fly fishing methods, employing risky yet rewarding conservation projects, and preserving traditions and techniques. The Tightest Line follows five guides in their local habitats; from pristine waters of Idaho, to the high mountain streams of Colorado, to the flats of the Bahamas and fertile rivers of the Pacific Northwest, in search of some of the most prolific and elusive fish in North America. Tightest Line features original music by Andy Falco of The Infamous Stringdusters, as well as music from The Shook Twins, Chris Pandolfi (Infamous Stringdusters), Wallace, PIKA, & Cari Cari.
