Gangsters of the Flats by Jako Lucas | Cinematic Sunday

Dec 06, 2020

A classic fly fishing short film on chasing monster "Geets"

Maybe you've fished for them, maybe you've never heard of them, and maybe you've seen videos of them eating birds off the surface; Giant Trevally. They are the wolf, the apex predator, their relentless aggression towards everything that can swim on a flat is likely what makes them such a desirable species to chase with a fly rod. 

In the heart of the Indian Ocean, renowned angling guide and filmmaker Jako Lucas documents five minutes and twenty-five seconds of absolute Giant Trevally magic. The Seychelles is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after fly fishing destinations on earth, and this short video captures it perfectly. 

There is a part of me that wishes Gangsters of the Flats was a full-length feature film. See it below, and enjoy this instalment of Cinematic Sunday.
