This shorter cut is a teaser for a full length documentary called Bonacca. Here, a fly fishing guide in Honduras explains how fly fishing has personally affected and improved his life. He also discusses how the fishery is better maintained now that the permit is a prized gamefish.

Fortunately, the permit has a higher value in the water than it does on the table.
