90 Miles is the physical distance between the Florida Keys and Cuba. It is what connects us and what separates us. This film is the first documentary that WorldANGLING has ever produced in a foreign location and what an incredibly cool place to start!
The goal was to share the passion for fly fishing with the next generation of anglers out there. The WorldANGLING Facebook photo contest winner for 2013 was Will Griffiths, a shop rat from the Pacific northwest. He had never thrown a 1o weight in salt before stepping on the bow of my skiff. One thing was made very apparent in the 3 days that we had together on the flats here in Key West, that there is no denying the young guys are here to stay. It was obvious the passion that Will had for the sport and the Gods clearly favored him. Featuring an original soundtrack from Miguel Perez, Knockin On The Door is the story of Will Griffiths and the rise of a generation in the sport.

It’s a never ending quest to design the perfect flats fishing skiff. There are compromises. As much as I don’t want to admit that, given the technology today, and the set of parameters that define the requirements of a flats fishing boat, it is simply the case that sacrifices must be made. It may not be forever, but until we are ready to spend a million bucks and design retracting hydrofoils for a carbon fibre canoe, there isn’t much we can do. Or is there?
Sometimes I have a hard time sleeping at night. My mind won’t shut off. It’s a problem when I get into the heart of fishing season and the alarm goes off at 4am. You’d think that poling a skiff everyday would wear me out and I’d just pass out, but this kind of saltwater fly fishing posses me. I get a kind of insomnia that keeps me awake thinking, strategizing, figuring what I can do better, what the next film I want to shoot is going to be, or what the shape of the ultimate permit fishing skiff looks like. I spend hours pacing around downstairs of the Tree House scratching notes, messing with wrenches and generally digging myself into a bigger and bigger dilemma with changes and modifications I would make to everything from fly rods, to poling platforms, to compression socks that save energy and help with balance in swell. I can’t stop. Luckily, I have managed to find some equally fanatical people who are willing to listen to the ideas I have. Read More
I think the real reason people fly fish on the flats is because it’s challenging. We don’t just one day decide that we are going to start to saltwater fly fish because it looks easy and fun, but rather, because it’s hard and exotic. We find our way to it through airports, long car rides, and some sort of sacrifice in search of something exciting, challenging and beautiful. Sometimes the road will lead there from a freshwater tout or bass background and sometimes it will evolve from a bait and spin-fishing past. The common ground is that it represents the next level in our angling evolution. At some point in this journey of fishing you will have to face down the silver king… Read More
