This documentary film will take viewers from the hand lines and row-boat of A.W. Dimock in the 1880s to the fly rods and flats skiffs of todays greatest tarpon fisherman. Chasing Silver will follow the most accomplished men (and women) anglers in the world, who have devoted their lives to chasing the mysterious tarpon. They will share the oral history of the sport and personal techniques used to convince trophy tarpon to eat a fly. We will take viewers from Islamorada, Florida to the Gulf Coast and down to The Keys. As we hitch our ride on the bow, we'll follow a fish that breeds obsession, but still remains a mystery as it disappears and re-appears along the Florida coast in vast numbers each year. Well share the thrill (and the absurdity) of convincing a tarpon to eat, the impossibility of getting one to stay on, and the pro's secrets for bringing the jumping bruisers to the boat - in a time thought to be impossible on a fly rod 20 years ago. Along the way well find out how we can ensure the rare and fragile ecosystems of Florida continue to host the ultimate game fish in a thriving environment...forever.
