Meet Jack Buccola — a 12-year-old angler from Bend, Oregon. In RA Beattie's new film, NexGen, we see the rivers of the American West unfold through Jack's eyes as he witnesses the impact of wildfires on his home waters, and explores new adventures on a road trip with his father, Ryan, friend, Judd Field, and Judd’s dad, Pete. Throughout the journey, Jack grows to appreciate the steelhead of the Northwest and the native cutthroat of the South Fork of the Snake River. It's easy to see why. NexGen premiers at the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour, which kicks off on Jan. 19, in Bozeman, Montana.
