Lillard Fly Fishing Hits the Big Screen

Last summer film maker Harrison Buck started filming for a new project titled “The Tightest Line”. The film takes a deeper look into the life of fly fishing guides. Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions and our head guides Charlie Parr and Will Lillard were honored to be a part of the project.10351737_753744758031293_6103417163207570923_n

During the last week of our 2014 adventures Harrison joined our Colorado Rocky Mountain Adventure for a journey into the Rocky Mountain National Park backcountry in search of native cutthroat trout. Four days, approximately twenty miles, and hundreds of fish later he had hours of footage capturing the amazing experience of teens on our unique expeditions.

Not long after our summer rapped up LFFE head guide Charlie Parr was back in front of Harrison’s camera. This time they were chasing bonefish and shark down to the Bahamas. Yes you read that right SHARKS on a fly rod.sharkeye

Take a look at the trailer here. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for an update on the release of the final movie.

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions was started in 2010 as a graduate thesis for my Master's Degree in Environmental Conservation Education at NYU. The operating premise was simple - by coupling amazing wilderness fly fishing camps for teens with environmental education and service learning we can help inspire future generations of fly fishing conservationists. We have been growing our unique list of trips and experiences ever since.

When it comes to choosing a summer program for your teen the options are endless. For the teen who loves to fish, be outside, and has a strong sense of adventure we have made the choice easy. We are the leader in teen fly fishing adventures and are dedicated to providing the best backcountry fly fishing experience with opportunities for teens to engage in leadership training, community service, and backcountry camping.
