Felipe Rodriguez Alonso is famous among Cuba’s fishing guides, his local community, and fly fishing customers from around the world. I have fished with Felipe many times, and know much about his story, his family, and his incredible philanthropy and kindness. Not long ago, Felipe asked me to visit him and some of his fly fishing students to talk about the sport and to cast with them a little. It was a great experience, although humbling since I was asked to speak in Spanish if I could!!

Recently, a customer who has fished with me in Cuba (that’s you Toby!) pointed out this very nice film made about Felipe and his fly fishing school in his small home town of Jaguey Grande. It is SO WORTH you watching!
