That’s right… I’m upset with Confluence Films. I’m upset for several reasons, but primarily because I’m selfish and prone to jealous. See, they are off to begin filming for their follow-up to Connect. I kind of love Connect because it is beautifully filmed, expertly crafted and also features the same waters in Cuba that I fished with one of the Confluence Film founders, Jim Klug. Where do they go to start filming for this next film?
St. Brandon’s Atoll (also known as Cargados Carajos Shoals).
That is why I’m upset.
Why would that make me upset? Primarily it is jealousy and my penchant for selfishness. See, I want to be fishing St. Brandon’s Atoll. Me! I want to go there! Now!
St. Brandon’s is in the middle of no where. The operation is a live-aboard as I don’t think there’s actually much land there. What you do have are just silly numbers of unmolested bonefish and Indo-Pacific Permit, GT’s and who knows what else.
The place is located to the east of Madagascar, way south of the Seychelles. I have no idea how long it takes to get there, but I’m guessing it is really, really quick, easy and comfortable to get to some tiny islands off the east coast of Africa. I mean, how hard could it be, right? And if you forget something, I’m pretty sure you can pop into the local Walmart or fly shop, right?
St. Brandon’s. Man. That is going to be kind of amazing footage.
I know it is going to be too long for me to wait to see the footage from St. Brandon’s, but I can’t wait to see it.
When you talk bucket lists, this place is tops.
