In 2015 we teamed up with Angler’s Eye Media to produce a film showcasing the offshore yellowfin tuna action found off the coast of San Diego, California. We were honored when our film was selected to circulate the globe with the International Fly Fishing Film Festival 2016. Wide Open was also nominated for the “Best of Saltwater Fly Fishing” by the Drake Magazine Video Awards. There is also a feature article found in Tail Fly Fishing Magazine regarding this production.
In search for what is pound for pound the hardest pulling fish in the ocean, anglers Mark Martin and Alex Beck set out on an adventure in Mark’s home waters off the coast of San Diego, California. Muscle, speed, and adrenaline are the genetic strengths of yellowfin tuna, and could they also experience the tug of the elusive bluefin tuna on the fly? Join them in their adventure of reel screaming, rod bending, heart pounding action to see if tuna really can claim the title of the hardest pulling fish in the saltwater world.
