Sioux Falls man in ‘Blood Knot’ fishing documentary on Amazon Prime

When he was in college, Sioux Falls resident Nick Bentele visited a friend in Colorado.

Bentele didn’t come from an outdoors family, but one morning in Colorado, his friend’s dad took the two out fly fishing. And Bentele was hooked.

“I didn’t know what I was doing, but I liked it,” said Bentele, who works full time at First National Bank. “I knew it needed to be part of my life.”

Now, Bentele is the star of “Blood Knot,” a fly fishing documentary on Amazon Prime, available to rent or buy. The film celebrates friendship as Bentele and his friends are shown fly fishing in Wyoming and Alaska last year.

“The film was an opportunity to help a young filmmaker turn his dream into a reality,” said Bentele, “but I also want the people in my life who are closest to me to know why it’s important and show them what the experience looks like .”
