a perfect video to be inspired to plan my next trip to nzl
River,forest,sky,trout and casting loop, everything is beautiful.
Great film great scenery and great fishing. Great way to watch a video and a good company will use again.
The dream to catch fish on a big surface pattern is every flyanglers dream. Bass- and Pikefishing with poppers. Or skating black topwater flies in the night of the Baltic-sea to catch a Seatrout. Throwing big Stoneflys or Hex to rising Browntrout. Yes this is what makes our blood boiling and our eyes staring at the water wating for the take. The Film is one of the first very good trailers I saw on Youtube, way back some years.. I thought wow one day I will watch it complete. In most Films you are done watching the trailer. All good scenes are packed in 2 minutes, but here not. Watch the trailer and then buy the film. It is worth evey penny, packed with nice landscape, funny scenes and knowledge. And the most important thing, It will let you dream on : "One day I catch a huge trout on a big fat rat sliding over the water" ......
Brilliant company to deal with...easy and efficient!
On my bucket list to own one of your Epic fly rods one day
Very nice cinematography. Will have to put some mice patterns together now.
Fantastic footage and story line. Plenty enough to tempt all levels of enthusiasm.
The ultimate fishing documentary! Amazing camera work! You did a great job!
Excellent look at a somewhat rare event in NZ. Mousing for big brown trout! What a fun thing to do flyfishing.
The best cinematography I've ever seen in a fly fishing film!
A great show case for New Zealand's Fishery and landscape
Trouts are not far from pikes as a predator.
A great watch on an interesting niche of fly fishing. Awesome story, shots, fish and a smooth edit. Well and truly enjoyed!
BEST FLY FISHING VIDEO EVER :)
Never have i seen a fishing video that captured those special moments, exactly as i have felt them in the past. I have fished some of these streams for 50 years, and know just what it is like, but to see it, and be taken back to so many fish caught, was just wonderful
A perfect spotlight on a unique niche of fly fishing. Great depth scientifically.
Wonderful landscapes. Top scenery and beautiful fishes. Why is New Zeland so far from Europe.
Great movie. Highly recommend it
if this doesn't make you want to experience a "mouse year" in New Zealand then you suck at life. Well done!
Great story. Outstanding cinematography. Amazing scenery and fishing. This film set the standard for fly fishing films when it was released, and it is still one of the best fly fishing films of all time.
All I can say is I am very pleased there is not a buy it now trip to New Zealand available at the end of the film or my bank account would have suffered
Get out and fish
Very well done, beautiful work of combining fish porn with a story of a mouse year.
One of the best fly fishing videos i have seen!
As a keen fly fisherman, I have a few DVDs on fishing related topics. This is by far the best in my collection, the cinematography is mesmerising. I would highly recommend anyone who fly fishes to add this to their collection and those who don't, buy it for someone who does fly fish or even fishes. They will treasure it as I do.
I would watch the video but wouldn't pay for it.
Still the benchmark others aspire too all these years later. Great cinematography - crystal clear shots, superb scenery and all linked together with the mouse year story. There's only one thing better than this film, and that's been on the river!!
