Last night the finalists in the Blue Ocean Film festival were announced - And we're in there with Itu's Bones!


It was thrill just to make it in, it's a big deal just to get accepted - and we thought we'd done pretty well at that.

Then to be voted through to the first round.. and now to progress further and be a finalist - we're blown away (I have the hangover today to prove it)
We're entered in the "People and the Sea" category, Jeanie is particularly chuffed as BLUE is about as a big as it gets if you're a watery documentary maker.

Very cool

This year Jean-Michel Coustea will be showing a flim on his father Jacques Cousteau - Jeanie's childhood idol and the inspiration that got her into Marine Biology and filmmaking.

Filmmaker James Cameron will also be honored with the Award for Lifetime Achievement in Ocean Filmmaking.

About the Blue Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Event
Every two years ocean leaders, filmmakers, photographers, scientists, explorers, entertainment executives – and the general public-- gather in Monterey at BLUE to honor the best in ocean filmmaking, to learn more about the issues facing our oceans, and to collaborate on improving the future of our oceans and humanity. The seven-day event is charged with energy as these diverse groups of people share knowledge and ideas with each other and with the general public.

September 24th-30th, 2012

Casting tight loops are is actually pretty simple in theory. Line and loop shape are primarily dictated by the path the fly rod tip takes during the cast and after the stop. The line does not follow the rod tip exactly - but for the purpose of this exercise that’s what we need to be thinking about.

Fly Fishing & Fly Casting - Tailing Loops And How To Cure Them

October 13, 2021

Having seen a few tails and created more than my fair share - most entirely involuntarily - I think it best to keep things relatively simple. After-all, we're all about fly fishing rather than any in-depth analysis of casting physics.
Fly fishing and certainly fly casting is most certainly the sport of exceptions and in order to attempt to explain anything in fly casting you tend to have to generalise  -and that’s what i’m about to do.
