Film Overview: Nine Foot Rod is the story of four fly-fishing guides who embark on a fly-fishing trip to Oman in search of large GT’s and Indo-Pacific Permit. Running head first into a stigma that demonizes their destination, the crew face their fears with honesty and vulnerability; searching for a greater understanding of the region and its people. Raw and emotional, the film speaks of a larger experience, where trepidation and fear are transformed with insight and awareness. On their journey, the guides are reminded of the thread that binds humanity, regardless of race, religion and class; and come home forever changed and imbued with a greater love of people.
