This is an Adventure Film about catching one of the most elusive fish in the sea. But what its really about, is chasing your dreams.
We hope to inspire many people with our documentary. We want people to go out and chase their Grande! What is your Grande? Maybe it’s a trip you have always wanted to take, but have never actually gone. Maybe you’ve wanted to start a creative project or build your own business, but never believed it was actually possible. Maybe you’ve wanted to pursue “THAT” girl or take a leap of faith in hopes that “IT” will work out? Are any of these your Grande, or is it something else?
In our film, the word “Grande” is a term used for a large Roosterfish. In a class all by itself, 40 pounds or more.
Our filming location resides along secret beaches in the Sea of Cortez. It’s the only known place of its kind where you can consistently chase these fish from the beach. In other parts of the world, Roosterfish reside near rocky beaches battered by heavy surf where the art of fly fishing is almost completely impossible. Our direct access to these fish has produced some of the best Roosterfish footage ever captured.
HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?
The most important part of our Fundanything campaign (aside from reaching our funding goal) is getting the word out. We’re doing everything we can to let people know about the project, but we could use your help! So, tweet about it and tell your friends and family about our Fundanything page. Do you run a blog? A fly fishing, adventure magazine or media outlet? Do you just dig our story? Get in touch! It all helps!

The catch-and-release waters are located in Apple River State Park in Jo Daviess County, White Pines State Park in Oregon County, Siloam Springs State Park in Adams County, Gridley Lake in Cass County, Horton Lake in Hancock County and IDOT Lake in Sangamon County.
