What Kind of Meat? The Provo Brothers


What kind of Meat? from The Provo Bros on Vimeo.

A fly-fishing journey to the Bolivian Amazon. We wanted to experience the rawness of the jungle in the richest ecosystem on earth, to have a primordial connection with nature that for us, is best achieved through exploration with a fly rod. Our Tsimané guides brought us into their jungle, back in time to a lost world of primitive living, giving us the opportunity to catch a Golden Dorado, one of the most possessed fish that swims. The Amazon wilderness holds many mysteries, but we found out for ourselves that the real treasures of the jungle live beneath the canopy, and swim through its pristine rivers.

From the lowland tropics to the high altitudes of the Cordillera, our fly-fishing trip became more of a lesson in the immense diversity of Bolivia's landscapes and people. We invested everything we had, but came home feeling rich with new knowledge and experiences that are now priceless.

If you're interested in an expedition style fly-fishing trip to the headwaters of the Bolivian Amazon, you must contact our friends Patrick Taendler and Federico Marancenbaum from Santa Cruz. They shared with us their passion and enthusiasm for Golden Dorado, and there is no way in hell we could have done it without them! facebook.com/anglingfrontiers

BTT Symposium Art and Film Fest



For two full days, starting November 7th, Bonefish and Tarpon Trust will host their 5th International Symposium at the IGFA Hall of Fame and Museum in Dania Beach, FL. This year’s event will feature science presentations packed with the latest science developments from the world’s top tarpon, bonefish, and permit biologists.

There will be a number of clinics and demonstrations for attendees to enjoy including a light tackle casting clinic from C.A. Richardson, the star of Flats Class TV, a tarpon clinic hosted by world class angler Andy Mill, a fly tying demonstration with Enrico Puglisi, and a photography clinic with renowned photographer Pat Ford. Throughout the two days there will also be panel discussions with some of today’s most knowledgeable fishing guides from around the world, trading insight and stories about bonefish, tarpon, and permit.

Friday evening’s entertainment will come in the way of the inaugural BTT Art and Film Festival where some of the biggest names in saltwater art and photography will be on hand to display their work. Attendees will have a chance to purchase pieces directly from the artists with portions of the proceeds benefiting Bonefish and Tarpon Trust.

The festival will also feature films showcasing our favorite inshore flats fish. BTT is now accepting short film submissions from the public for a chance to be shown during the festival. Films must be roughly 5 minutes in length and content should focus on inshore flats species.

New Fly Fishing Buddy Added To The Family!



Another Lifetime Catch

I wanted to alogize to everyone for being MIA these past few weeks. My wife and I were a little tied up, if you will, with a new addiiton to the family.

We were blessed to add Trevor to the Duggan family August 10th 2014. He was netted at 9 1/4 measuring at a hearty 21". Definitely another catch of a Lifetime!

We are so fortunate to have 2 Boys in the family now and years of enjoyement to come our way on the Rivers. The question is "How long before Caleb or Trevor pass me as a better fisherman?"

The best part of this is that I'm home much more these days keeping my wife happy by caring for both boys, the downside, if any despite me not complaining, is that my Fall Fishing will be pretty light when it comes to chasing biog browns and camping trips. Oh well it's all good in the grand scheme of things right and in a few years I'll have someone to tie my flies for me :)
