Waypoint TV Launches Two All-New Original AFTCO Films

Austin, Texas – The world’s leading entertainment destination for hunting, fishing, and outdoor adventure programming, Waypoint TV is launching the two newest AFTCO films to the video on demand platform. You can watch AFTCO’s Original Films Built on Passion: The Trosset Family Legacy and Folklore: Year of the Bluefin, on the Waypoint TV app and website.

AFTCO’s Original Film, Built on Passion: Trosset Family Legacy, follows the family in the Florida Keys as they explore what it truly takes to be legendary. Tenacity and character, grit and desire, all have their role, but the trust test is the legacy one man’s passion leaves for the generation to come.

AFTCO’s Folklore series showcases the myths, legends, and allures of sport fishing’s best kept secrets. The Year of the Bluefin is the first of this series. Hop into the Pacific Ocean with Greg Stotesbury, retired AFTCO Tackle Manager, Avalon Tuna Club Committee Chair and legend in the SoCal fishing community, as he recounts the return of the mighty bluefin after they disappeared for nearly a century.

AFTCO reflects a legacy of firsts. From former company Chairman Milt Shedd’s pioneering conservation achievements, to the invention of the roller guide and the introduction of the world’s first pair of true fishing shorts, AFTCO provides conservation leadership and delivers products proven to deliver performance on the water. Their passion for the outdoors extends beyond the product catalog thanks to an unwavering commitment to help protect fishing resources and angler rights. Through their 10% Pledge to Protect and Conserve, your purchase of any AFTCO product directly supports conservation initiatives.

“Year of the Bluefin and Built on Passion showcase the overarching drive, respect and reverence that we as anglers have for the sport, the gamefish, and the family bonds sportfishing inherently provides” said AFTCO Marketing Director, Matt Florentino.

“We are pleased to share two new AFTCO original films to the Waypoint TV platform. AFTCO has a way of producing personal and relatable content that exemplifies the meaning of and reasons for conservation and education in the outdoor communities. They have taken it beyond their quality products and have molded entertainment that continues to be a viewer favorite.
