Brothel is a beautiful drone-clip compilation of Australian salmon fishing by Liam Surridge; many thanks for sharing this with Feathers and Fluoro:

Chasing Tail

A short film by Andrew Harding about trout fishing in a shallow North Island lake. In his words: “Nestled on a high plateau in the central North Island of New Zealand, this small, shallow lake offers up so many moods in an amazingly barren, but beautiful surround under the shadow of an active volcano.

New Zealand Kingfish on Fly

Words and photos by Victor James Ives I guess when you think of New Zealand you think of the All Blacks, and how they dominated South African rugby recently. If you are a bit more of a nature lover you think of endless snow capped mountains with lush green forests. You think of gin clear […]

Free swimming sailfish on fly

Jono Shales from Exmouth Fly Fishing is known for targeting free swimming black marlin on fly; in this clip he hooks up with a free swimming sailfish.

Jack Kos is one of the talented Kiwi fly fisherman I met while travelling through the South Island several years ago. On the day that our footsteps crossed, we had both planned to hike up a specific gorge section of a river neither of us had fished before in the Canterbury area. The light was poor in […]
