Directors commentary on the making of Tributaries. See the original post on the Orvis blog here.
Fly fishing is more than just a job or hobby for Prescott.
Fly fishing is a way of life; it provides employment, experience, entertainment, and more. Having been taught by the best, his father, the famed “Crazy Charlie,” (often revered as “The Godfather of the Flats”) Prescott has devoted his life to fly fishing and the conservation of the areas the local bonefish, permit, and tarpon call home. As a world-renowned guide and President of The Bahamas Sportfishing & Conservation Association, it’s safe to say: Prescott is a busy man; and his dedication to not only the sport, but also the preservation of the habitat is second-to-none. Take a moment and watch the first video in our Tributaries: Guide Series designed to give you a glimpse into the everyday lives of professional fly fishing guides from unique areas around the globe. Stay tuned for future videos covering the lives of professional guides from Northern Patagonia, Argentina and Eastern Iceland.
We are very happy to be included in the 2014 run of the Italian Brescia Winter Film Festival. Judging by last year’s festival, it looks to be another great one in 2014.
The music in Iceland matches the sublimity of the landscape. Big, melodic heavy metal.
Iceland was amazing and a big thank you to the guys at IcelandicFlyFishermen.com is in order.
“I wanted to explore the world’s waters and the cultures that inhabit them.”

Tributaries is a journey to uncover the commonality among different cultures, people and water. It explores the contrasting experiences of three diverse guides — a Bahamian flats-drifter, a Patagonian trout bum and a Viking-blooded Icelander.
