The first early reviews on Providence are coming in! Here’s what folks had to say:
Le Mouching: “What I saw was sick! I called my friends to tell them what I just witnessed, saltwater fly fishing films just got another dimension! Everything is unbelievable, the story: after six years of no fishing in the far islands of the Seychelles, the crew from Confluence films get to the atoll of Providence in places that have NEVER been fished before.”
Outside Bozeman: “There are some angling moments that transcend what’s made it to the fly fishing silver-screen so far. Camille Egdorf’s landing of her first GT is as athletic as anything you will see on American Ninja Warrior, and Tim Babich’s swim across shark-frequented channels while landing a massive barracuda is a kind of oceanic version of Paul Maclean bobbing down the Blackfoot. The character development by Bozeman-based Confluence has always been memorable, and in Providence, the filmmakers keep this convention alive by introducing Egdorf. The portrait of her life-altering choice to join the expedition in their return to the Seychelles and her response to the experience is honestly rendered and relatable to anyone who has made controversial choices to pursue fish into the unknown.”
