The Trout Bum Diaries: Volume I: Patagonia
"The Trout Bum Diaries"
The Angling Exploration Group recently announced the first installment of "The Trout Bum Diaries", a revolutionary style fly fishing video currently in production. This video is the result of five months of sleeping in the dirt, driving from 11,998 kilometers from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, river after river and lake after lake along the Andes, the spine of South America. This video is slated for release this Fall.
What's revolutionary about this video? The world of fly fishing is filled with videos and television shows on everything from casting skills to what outfitter to fish with in Montana. There is very little in the industry that is "pure entertainment", and our aim is to fill this void.
Our films are laid out in a modified surf/snowboard video style, fast action with commentary between music sequences. They are shot "trout bum style", and are filled with shots of real life trout bums sleeping in the dirt, exploring new waters, hiking streams, floating rivers, and of course, catching fish! You won't find any instructional commentary here, and we guard all of our film locations by using imaginary names. This is pure fly fishing entertainment.
What you will find is lots of high-action, fish catching, exploring, scenery, and life-style shots. You will be able to join us on our fly fishing adventures through the jungles mountains, spring creeks, sprawlin rivers, and deserts of this unique part of South America, all in the comfort of your home in from of your home entertainment system.
The first video to be produced from this trip is called Volume I: Patagonia. The video documents the voyage of four trout bums on an epic fly fishing expedition across Argentina and Chile. Does 5 pound brook trout in a creepy middle earth style forest appeal to you? Broken windows and snapped axles? Uniquely colored brown trout from a wind-swept spring creek? Stripping mouse patterns for big rainbows with flamingos and the ghosts of Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid catch your interest? Crystal-clear New Zealand style rivers with big trout? Horse-packing trips into glacial rivers? Tierra Del Fuego and the sea-run brown trout of the south? Pure fishing entertainment?
