I love everything there is about albie aka false albacore fly fishing, the smell of the salt, the rapid blitzes, the challenge of getting the flies to the fish, the flies, the chase, and just looking at them. For their size not much else pulls are hard as they do an 8lb fish will double over a 9 wt and rip line off the reel faster than you think possible.
Each year I film fly fishing the inshore waters of the northeastern U.S. and produce a "movie" of the results. This is the full and final version of the Surf & Inshore Fly Fishing project covering the full year 2012.
As mentioned in the teaser, a season spent chasing these fish is only a series of events with no plot or story, but when you put these seasons together, year after year, the story becomes more clear; it's the story of your life, and how you've decided to live it.
A special thanks to those who were supportive throughout the year, particularly:
