The Brothers Fly – Grunter on The Breede River
In this premiere film, brothers Nick and Jonathan Boulton document their yearly adventure fly fishing trip, this time returning to their homeland of South Africa to fish for Grunter and Leerfish on the Breede River. Being their first meeting for many months, there’s plenty of brotherly competition to catch up on, and the Breede is the perfect place. Where the river meets the Indian Ocean at the Western Cape of South Africa, warm, brackish water creates a diversity of life, the perfect hunting ground not just for fish, but for sharks, whales and dolphins. Spotted Grunter are a smart fish, difficult to catch at the best of times. Despite careful wading and imitative shrimp patters, the Grunter prove illusive, so Nick and Jonathan try for another local prize, the Leerfish. As the sport picks up, Nick feels a heavier pull on the end of his line and finally gets a chance at the prize they travelled all this way for.
