Weekend Pick: Catch the Waypoints Fly Fishing Film Tour


Steelhead, payar, golden mahseer, oh my! The world premiere of Waypoints, the latest fly fishing film from Confluence Productions, is coming to both Harrisonburg and Blacksburg, Virginia this Friday, November 8th. The film features destinations such as Alaska, India, and Chile. The folks from Confluence are anticipating somewhere between 50-100 screenings on this specific date throughout the country, so get ready for the biggest night of fly fishing!

Tickets are $10 and available at both Mossy Creek Fly Fishing and Clementine’s in Harrisonburg. In Blacksburg, the screening will be held at Virginia Tech’s campus in the Squires Student Union room.

From Confluence Films: “Following in the footsteps of Confluence’s earlier releases DRIFT, RISE and CONNECT, WAYPOINTS is the most exotic, ambitious and in-depth feature-length project that Confluence has ever created. Shot around the world in both fresh and saltwater, locations include flats fishing St. Brandon’s Atoll in the Indian Ocean, trout fishing the wilds of Patagonian Chile, coastal Southeast Alaska for Steelhead, the Himalayan rivers of India for Golden Mahseer, and the jungles of Venezuela for saber-toothed payara. Confluence has become known for great stories, interesting character profiles, soulful interviews, an amazing diversity of species, and the finest cinematography in the world of fly fishing. WAYPOINTS delivers on all of these things and more. An incredible travel-logue-style fishing film that truly showcases not only the fly fishing lifestyle, but the journey itself as seen through the eyes of anglers Oliver White, Jeff Currier, Greg Bricker, Gerhard Laubscher, Rooster Leavens, and several other interesting and unique characters.”

Show starts at 7pm with plenty of food and drinks to go around. The crew behind Waypoints promises this to be their finest, most exotic, and ambitious project yet. If you’re still not convinced, take a peak at the trailer here.  This isn’t a film to miss!
