In 2020 we made a film to introduce our beloved fish, the fruit-eating machaca (Brycon sp.) to the world. The film went around the world with the F3T and various other collaborations.
Today, we are excited to keep the stoke going by sharing this film.
Watch it, share it, and if you feel so inclined, come live it with us in Costa Rica!
About the film:
Machaca – A Botanical Tale
** Official Selection – Fly Fishing Film Tour 2020 **
In the rainforests of Costa Rica there is a relationship that doesn’t happen anywhere else on the planet. The film tells the story of the relationship between the machaca, a vegetarian fish, and the diverse forest. The feeding behavior and fishing techniques can be easily identified by trout fishermen the world over, but the machaca’s aggressive takes and exotic characteristics make them an adversary all their own. This film will introduce a species completely new and unique to the global fly fishing community in a light, fun, and adventurous fashion.
