In the fifth full-length fly fishing film from Confluence’s Chris Patterson and Jim Klug, Yellow Dog Flyfishing’s Camille Egdorf, and South African guides Gerhard Laubscher and Tim Babich team up for an amazing journey and a return to the remote and uninhabited Seychelles atoll of Providence. The new film chronicles the first trip back to Providence Atoll since the waters were closed to all fishermen and boat access in 2010 due to the threats and activities of pirates operating out of Somalia

Providence is aimed at showing all viewers — from hardcore, 300-day-a-year anglers to people who’ve never picked up a fly rod — that fly fishing is a much deeper, more interesting and a more fulfilling sport than they’ve been led to believe by mainstream media. Providence captures the beauty, adventure and excitement of saltwater fishing – on location – with the best shooters in the business using the highest quality techniques and HD digital equipment.

The remote Seychellois atoll of Providence — a fishery that has been completely closed off and unfished for the past six years due to issues with Somali pirates.

The team returned in October of 2015, spending three weeks exploring the atoll and fishing for multiple flats species including giant trevally, bluefin trevally, bumphead parrotfish, bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, milkfish and more. An amazing story of adventure, piracy, challenging fish, the history of the area and untouched flats.

The introduction of YouTube, the GoPro and consumer DSLR cameras have brought about thousands of new fly fishing videos and small-scale film projects over the past ten years. And while this large amount of fishing-related content can be great for the promotion of the sport and for the fishing industry in general, the reality is that professional equipment does not automatically equal professional content and quality. Which is why high-quality, full-length, large scale professional film productions are welcomed and supported by so many anglers.

Following the success of Drift, Rise, Connect, and Waypoints comes Providence – the fifth large-scale movie project from Confluence Films. Filming for this new project took place in the fall of 2015 on Providence Atoll in the Seychelles. Confluence’s Jim Klug, Chris Patterson and Colin Witherill, Yellow Dog’s Camille Egdorf, and FlyCastaway’s Gerhard Laubscher and Tim Babich joined forces to create the new movie. This was FlyCastaway’s first trip back to the atoll since the waters were closed in 2009 to all fishermen and boat access due to the threats and activities of pirates operating out of Somalia. The Confluence team chased species including giant trevally, bluefin trevally, bumphead parrotfish, bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, milkfish and more. Title sponsors of the new film include Simms Fishing Products, Costa Del Mar, Hatch Reels, Yeti Coolers and Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.

As with previous Confluence projects, the difference in the finished product is truly in the details. The two partners in Confluence Films (Chris Patterson and Jim Klug) have close to 50 years of combined experience in their respective roles for Providence: writing, directing, filming, editing, producing, organizing travel and arranging logistics. They have each run their own successful businesses and know the importance of details in putting together a great final product. Providence is an example of their commitment to travel even farther off the grid and find the most remote places, the most exotic species and the most interesting people. Combine these element with an incredibly high production component and Providence promises to be one of the best fly fishing movies ever made.

The Location:
Providence was filmed in the Seychelles, on the remote Providence Atoll. Providence has always been legendary for its amazing numbers of Giant Trevally, bonefish, triggerfish and bumphead parrotfish. Having been closed for six long years due to piracy issues, the Atoll was once again opened on a very limited basis for four weeks in the fall of 2015. This fishery is as healthy, untouched, productive and amazing as anything found anywhere in the entire word of saltwater flats fishing.
