CONVERGENCE

Like the beatles said all those years ago, "come together." 

In September of 2016, Conservation Hawks had an incredible opportunity to spend time with Hilary Hutcheson and her daughters Ella and Delaney, with Travis Swartz (aka "Hank Patterson"), with Simon Perkins, Els Van Woert and their daughter Pippa, and with Pippa's grandfather (and Orvis CEO) Perk Perkins.  CONVERGENCE is the story of these incredible anglers and their collective passions: their love for wild trout; for healthy landscapes; for clean, cold waters, and for family and friends.  The film also shares their concerns about the future, their desire to protect our fisheries, and their unease with our changing climate and our rapidly warming planet.  Please take a minute to watch, and enjoy, the new CONVERGENCE trailer.

Climate change is the single largest threat to our children and our fisheries.  If you care about our landscapes and our kids & grandkids, please contact your U.S. Senators and Representative today and tell them to Act On Climate.     

CONVERGENCE is another collaborative effort between Conservation Hawks and the exceptional cinematic team at Conservation Media.  It follows on the heels of our two previous short films, COLD WATERS and CHROME, and will be part of the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T).  To find out when F3T and CONVERGENCE are visiting your area, please click here.
