BUG-BOND holds it together in Uncharted Waters
Uncharted Waters - Bassas Da India (official trailer 2012) from Smokin Drag Productions on Vimeo.
Last year I was approached to see whether I'd be interested in a project... the brief for the team was to fish in one of the remotest places on the earth a place where compared to Mount Everest fewer people have travelled to... this place was Bassas da India (an atoll in the Indian Ocean half way between Madagascar and Mozambique... well within striking distance of pirates!)
Jonathan Tomlinson and Glynn Henry along with a small team and a 46ft catamaran embarked on a journey to fish the unfished waters and the atoll of Bassas. They chose Bug-Bond to tie their flies with as they believed in its superior bonding capabilities and the speed of the process in tying and curing vast numbers of flies. They have documented their journey which had its fair share of bad weather in the form of a DVD... it is a documentary not only about fly fishing but fishing a variety of methods for wild fish and putting themselves and their gear to the ultimate test of endurance. A remarkable trip!
Bug-Bond was part of the equation... a small but vital role and we are pleased that we are part of the success story. Bug-Bond held it together when it mattered most... so whether you are on the trip of a lifetime or fishing your local trout reservoir you know that you are using a product that has been tested fully... in fact not just fully but BRUTALLY!
Well done lads!
Enjoyed the trailer? Now go and buy the DVD... I've watched it twice... not just a great place and great fish... its awesome!
