Here’s a trailer for the DVD “Jungle Fish,” which is part of a new kind of fly-fishing film, which seeks to explore how angling resources can help local communities:
This documentary follows three fishermen on an epic voyage into the heart of Guyana’s untamed jungle. Their mission: to prove that the world’s largest freshwater fishthe arapaimacan be caught with a fly. If they succeed, it’ll mean a brighter future for the Amerindians, the rain forest they call home—and for the threatened arapaima itself.
To see a fish of that size at the end of a fly line is pretty spectacular, although getting to the fish takes some doing and involves dodging some pretty large reptiles.
