New Ten Rivers Trip Episode:
WILD TROUT AND FLY FISHING
The fourth Ten Rivers Trip episode is out. In “Wild Trout and Fly Fishing in Trondelag” Kjell, his son Lukas and their dog, Lilo, is travelling to Trondelag for fly fishing and a break from city life. Watch it on You Tube for free.
The episode is set in 2018 and «Wild Trout and Fly Fishing in Trondelag» is thus the continuation from the “Spellbound by the moon”, the third Ten Rivers Trip episode published in 2019. “Wild Trout and Fly Fishing” is picking up where we left the boys – one with great fishing luck and the other virtually unable to catch anything.
In this episode Lukas gets his revenge and masters both the float and the strike to net several fantastic wild brownies from the pristine rivers of Trøndelag.
But there are challenges facing them both. Among others, a mal-functioning Danielsson reel causes chaos in the middle of the night when a really big trout strikes on a caddis hatch.
To us, stories about fly fishing is synonymous with stories about life itself and nature. A well-produced nature documentary is exploring the relationship between people and the nature they are a part of. That’s why fly fishing is both important and not important in our films. In Ten Rivers Trip fly fishing is the bond that ties Kjell and Lukas with rocks and trees and forms a whole that is more important to the story than the large trout, expensive equipment and Facebook poses with a fish out of its element.
That’s why honesty is both the obvious tool but also the hard choice we have to make when we tell our stories about our trips. We would love to brag about fish, but to often other elements from our hikes are more important than a golden hog netted from the river.
We need to tell our stories straight and with honesty. Uncompromising storytelling of lost fish, no fish and of course the odd spectacular brownie is what makes the story real and true to the actual days at the river.
Our perception of the forest, rivers and mountains are fundamental guides in how we see ourselves, the world and how we choose to live our lives.
The sun in the sky, the moon at night, the birch tree in the forest, the majestic mountain peaks, the frog in the lake and the Lynx outside our cabin walls are our life coaches.
Nature is our Zen-master. The river bank is our confessional.
After a long and cold Norwegian winter, we were finally set to release the third episode of Ten Rivers Trip. “Spellbound by the Moon” is a downright declaration of love for nature, fly fishing and the Trysil area in Norway. But the episode also tells the story of how unfair fly fishing and fishing luck can be. One guy with all the luck. The other with no fishing luck at all.
