During the summer of 2013, FOWA Member Bob Bramblet took part in a journey throughout the Southeast with friends to catch as many different bass species as they could from a kayak. Bramblet, along with film maker Rob DeVore, chronicled the trip in a film. Bass on the Road is a story about two kayak anglers embarking on a fishing road trip. Bob Bramblet and Jim VanPelt are mainly saltwater anglers and decided to try something different. They left the shallow inshore flats of Southwest Florida and began a week long journey through South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama in search of as many different bass species as they could find. Rob Devore of Yaktastic Adventures and cameraman Chris Patricella went along for the ride to capture the action, or in some cases, the lack thereof. The guys met up with Stewart Venable, Evan Howard and Eric Hughes of the River Stalkers. What followed was a story of adversity, weather, miles and miles of driving and ultimate success. The film was recently named as a selection of the Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour 2014. The Film Festival is a contest awarding winning films in 10 categories. The winners and other shortlisted films are then toured to more than 100 cities around the world, screening for an audience of more than 30,000 outdoor adventure enthusiasts and their friends and families. The festival is produced by Rapid Media and its goal is to inspire more people to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push physical and emotional extremes, embrace the lifestyle and appreciate the heritage of the wild places we paddle. 2014 marks the 9th year of the Film Festival.
