Don’t Miss This Opportunity
The Flyfishers Club of Oregon will have a private screening the feature length movie Finding Fontinalis. Narrator of the film, and Director of Fishing products for Patagonia, Bart Bonime will be on hand to talk about making of the film and the challenges he and the other cast members went through in pursuit of a World Record Brook Trout. This event is perfect for bringing a spouse or guest. Get ready to grab some popcorn and enjoy a great evening with fellow members.
In the summer of 1915, John William Cook disappeared into the vast boreal forests of northern Ontario, emerging seven days later with a 14.5-pound brook trout from the Nipigion River- the largest the world had ever seen. But the record was almost immediately embroiled in controversy: Some said Cook didn't take the fish on the fly, some said it was one of Cook's native guides who caught the fish, some even said it was no brook trout at all. Nevertheless, the record persisted.
One hundred years later, three anglers- fueled by an old gaucho's tale that told of "el lugar con el pescado rojo grande," the place with the big red fish-descend upon the Chubut province of Argentina in search of giant trout that are no longer found in their native North American range due to habitat loss and degradation.
Bart Bonime is a seasoned veteran of the fly fishing industry having spent over 30 years in the apparel side of the business. Bart has developed some of the most iconic products in the business having worked for some of the finest brands in the industry. Bart began his career with Columbia Sportswear, founded his own business with Go Fish Corporation, worked with Far Bank, developing product for both Sage and Redington and then designed and developed private label for some of the largest big box retailers in the world. Bart is currently the Director of Fishing for Patagonia, where he has won numerous AFFTA Best of Show awards across the entire Patagonia Fly Fishing line.
