Charlie Neymour in In Search of a Rising Tide

In Search of a Rising Tide

2004 NR

What begins as a quest to set a world record for catching a bonefish with a fly rod ends up as an essay on the preservation of a fishing culture and the ecosystem that gave rise to it. When childhood friends and world-class fishing guides Andy Smith and Charlie Neymour revisit the waters of Andros Island, Bahamas, documentary filmmaker Jamie Howard hitches a ride on their boat bow. The result is a rare, up-close look at a vanishing way of life.
