Winston is proud to announce our partnership with Tom Karrow, PhD Candidate, University of Waterloo, on his exciting research project – Ghost Stories.
Ghost Stories, is a conceptual book, film documentary and collection of short films centered on the lives of prominent pioneering Bonefish guides in the Bahamas. This project will document the lives of pioneering Bahamian guides, give them credit for their efforts in developing a world-wide angling phenomenon along with local Bahamian stakeholders, as well as apply their environmental knowledge to local resource management.
