Shot around the world in both fresh and saltwater, locations include flats fishing St. Brandon’s Atoll in the Indian Ocean, trout fishing the wilds of Patagonian Chile, coastal Southeast Alaska for Steelhead, the Himalayan rivers of India for Golden Mahseer, and the jungles of Venezuela for saber-toothed payara. Confluence has become known for great stories, interesting character profiles, soulful interviews, an amazing diversity of species, and the finest cinematography in the world of fly fishing. WAYPOINTS delivers on all of these things and more. An incredible travel-logue-style fishing film that truly showcases not only the fly fishing lifestyle, but the journey itself as seen through the eyes of anglers Oliver White, Jeff Currier, Greg Bricker, Gerhard Laubscher, Rooster Leavens, and several other interesting and unique characters.”Show starts at 7pm with plenty of food and drinks to go around.

Women’s World Cup 2019: Netherlands survives New Zealand with Jill Roord’s late goal

first_imgThe Dutch controlled the possession and had more attempts on goal but were frustrated for long spells in Le Havre, while New Zealand, without a win in its 13 World Cup finals matches, hit the woodwork early on and saw Sarah Gregorius go close.The result puts Netherlands level on three points with Canada, who beat Cameroon on Monday. Related News Olivia Chance gave Netherlands a scare 11 minutes in when she rattled the crossbar with a strike from the edge of the box.The Dutch soon took charge of proceedings, with Lieke Martens at the heart of their attacking efforts, but the Barcelona star failed to make the most of a headed opportunity from close range. The best chance of the half fell in stoppage time to Dominique Bloodworth, who sliced a rebound wide of the target with the goal gaping after Erin Nayler failed to deal with a cross.Gregorius was denied by Sari van Veenendaal after skewing a volley goalwards from Betsy Hassett’s cross, before Martens fired over and Vivianne Miedema was thwarted at the near post by Nayler.Netherlands made all the late attacking inroads and Tom Sermanni’s side were at last undone with barely 90 seconds remaining, when Roord, who only replaced Jackie Groenen in the 76th minute, headed the ball beyond Nayler from inside the six-yard box after Lineth Beerensteyn had forced it back across goal.872 – Jill Roord’s winner for Netherlands was only her fourth goal for the national side, and her first since she scored a brace against Romania in January 2017, 872 days ago.
