I don’t know about you, but living that “surf lifestyle” means a lot more than just surfing. Staying active and being outside; traveling, camping and being in nature. Ya, ya, surfing is that one thing that’ll put a shit eating grin on my face, but what if there’s something else out there that will do the same? Fly fishing? Intrigued, yes.
The backcountry of New Zealand holds a special place in the heart of all Kiwis. “Going bush” is a national past time, and Kiwi fly fishers like nothing better than the sun on their backpack, the cold touch of a mountain stream and the opportunity to sight fishing to giant trout in pristine settings.
The film follows six fly fishermen, from different places and different walks of life, as they each explore a treasured corner of the North Island. This land of active volcanoes, rugged gorges and dense forests provides an epic backdrop for some of the best trout fishing on the planet. As each story weaves into the fabric of the film it becomes evident that, despite their differences, the characters are all bound together by their passion for the backcountry.
