Featurette on the New Sage Website

Itus' Bones featurette on the New Sage Website

 
Sage


If you managed to catch the Fly Fishing Film Tour or have been following what we've been up to these past months you'll know that we've got a great Bonefishing Film in Post production.
The 10 min featurette from Itu's Bones (and some of our stills) are up on the very slick new Sage website - check it out here http://www.sageflyfish.com/

 We've also released the short on Youtube for embedding and linking here 
Don't forget to subscribe to our channel to get access to heaps of great fly fishing videos.  We'll be releasing a  trailer for Itu's Bones within the next few weeks.
The completed film should be on the shelves towards the end of October.

 We've had fantastic support from the industries top gear manufacturers on this one, pay them a visit.

 Costa Del Mar
Over the years I've tried just about every brand of Sunglass made - Without a doubt Costa's are head an shoulders above the rest.
Not only are their lenses superb but the design and engineering are truly excellent. One often overlooked aspect of Sunglass design is strength of construction - shades get a hammering out there , our Costas have certainly taken plenty of punishment.
Costa outfitted us with Permit and Blackfin shades - they're hot.

 Patagonia Fly Fishing 
Patagonia outfitted us in cool flats gear for the hot South Pacific heat. Their clothing is extremely well designed, durable and manufactured with a conscience

 Sage 
Sage came to the party with their superb new Xi3 rods, 6000 series reels and topped it all off with mountains of luggage and bags to hide all our kit.
Perfect!

iTunes - finally!

Posted by Carl McNeil on

After an 8 month wait, Apple have finally launched Once in a Blue Moon on iTunes!
It's the first (and only) Fly Fishing Film on the platform and can be rented or purchased in standard def, or rented in 1080 HD.
As much as we would have liked to make it available for purchase in HD, the conditions imposed by Apple prevent us from doing that.
In order to be made available for HD purchase all films must feature full 5.1 surround sound, unfortunately Once in a Blue Moon just wasn't set up to do that. But we will look at it for future releases.
With the inclusion of Once in a Blue Moon on iTunes you can now watch the film on your iPod, iPhone, iPad or best of all, your Apple TV on a big luscious HiDef monitor.
http://itunes.apple.com/nz/movie/once-in-a-blue-moon/id450378389
We could really do with some positive reviews and ratings on this one, so if you have an iTunes account log in, give us a review and rate us up!  - C'mon!!

Once in a Blue Moon New Artwork

Posted by Carl McNeil on

After about 18 months of fluffing around I've finally managed to find the time to update the cover artwork for Once in a Blue Moon. I've thought for some time that the cover just doesn't do the film justice, so hopefully this revision remedies that, sure hope so - I'd be interested to hear what you think.

We've also gone for a totaly new package style and have opted for high quality cardboard digipaks - they're more expensive to produce but look slick as hell and should really stand out on the shelves.
Plus an added bonus is we're using less plastic in our packaging

Once in a Blue Moon is still the number two selling fly fishing film on Amazon, second only to.. wait for it... A river Runs Through It. Not bad, particularly given that I'm no Brad Pitt.

We'll ge the new art updated on Amazon shortly and for all our retail customers and fly shops (which should be your first choice when you go buy a copy)

The updated artwork for web can be downloaded as a zip file here

If you're after a high resolution version for print just drop me a line.
