    Eric and the guys search throughout Florida for untouched backwater estuaries and areas that have been or are scheduled to be affected by coastal development. Get a look into the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust's Juvenile Tarpon / Snook Habitat Project as Eric tagged along with Program Manager JoEllen Wilson on one of their monthly sampling trips at a habitat restoration site.

    Coastal Development can be detrimental to our fisheries, as it can affect many of our juvenile nursery habitats, but with the proper research and action, we can regain and maintain a healthy fishery and environment in these very important areas.

Estrada Art Presents - The 5wt Chronicles: Follow us as we challenge ourselves to catch as many different species of fish on a 5wt fly rod. From Bonefish, Tarpon, Redfish, Black Drum, and a variety of freshwater fish including South Florida Peacock Bass, and Trophy Trout in Blue Ridge GA.

Film Maker's Statement:

In a time where I found myself as many, trying to upsize our fly rod to fight the high winds, I frequently went for a 9wt just in case it was windy. But one afternoon, I had an epiphany where I decided I wanted to drop down to a 5wt. Not to make it a challenge on the fish we are fighting, but because I wanted to challenge myself as a fly caster and fly fisherman. I can truly say that making this film series has made me a much better and proficient fly caster, even when I grab the 12wt to throw at tarpon. In understanding how to make a rod do the work, rather than overcasting and trying to muscle out a cast, while letting the reel put the brakes on the fish.
