In 2008, Confluence Films debuted DRIFT, a highly acclaimed documentary that captivated the Fly Fishing Community. In 2009, riding on the success of DRIFT, director/cinematographer Chris Patterson of Warren Miller Entertainment and executive producer Jim Klug once again set out in search of new locations and the totally unique stories, characters, and species that epitomize the spirit and soul of fly fishing. This new film is RISE û a six segment collection of individual stories shot around the world; stories that together truly reflect the attraction that fly fishing has for all of us. Shot on location in the Florida Keys, Argentina, Idaho, New Orleans, Venezuela, and Alaska. RISE is a stunning full-length film, photographed entirely on 16mm film and mastered in HD. Featuring: Rene Harrop, Rance Rathie, Travis Smith, Capt.Bruce Chard, Ron Sorensen, Mike Lawson, Capt. Bryan Carter & more.

Great movie for fishing.. shows some interesting places that are new to a lot of fishermen. Good Price for the dvd.
Especially the Tarpon Segment!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It takes the viewer along on journeys to places must of us would love to fish, and it’s masterfully filmed and edited. The single most intriguing segment was the one about the hatch of palolo worms that occurs briefly once a year and turns on the tarpon in the Florida Keys. Each of the other five segments is compelling in its own way as well: aggressive bonefish in Venezuela, trout on Henry’s Fork in Idaho, big rainbows in Alaska, redfish in post-Katrina New Orleans and sea-run brown trout in Patagonia. The variety is nice and the personalities of the fishermen and guides–and their stories–are interesting enough, though there isn’t a narrative thread, really, tying all these stories together. Lots to dream about here.
Very good video
I really enjoyed Rise. It’s not quite as good as Confluence Film’s first video, “Drift”, but it’s still enjoyable. The Florida tarpon fishing was the best part.
Drift was better, but…
…this was still a good movie. Lots of amazing destinations and good photography, with enough story to tie it all together. I would still recommend watching it.
