FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
SNOOKZILLA – Monsters in the Mangroves
In our newest adventure film, Snookzilla, we cast flies with angler Brian O’Keefe in the Yucatan Peninsula for some of the world’s largest snook – some as big as tarpon!
In our recent film, Tasmanian Twigwater, we explore the unique trout waters on the high plateaus of Tasmania with anglers Daniel and Simone Hackett and filmmaker Todd Moen. After learning that Twigwater brown trout were eager to rise to dries, the gorgeous Tasmanian backdrop urged a sense of adventure and discovery, and was filled with interesting critters and vegetation.
ALPHA IN THE JUNGLE
Jungle fishing is no joke. Extreme weather, relentless insects, and long days of casting heavy rigs are all worth it when you come tight to an angry shadow dwelling predator. In this video, Todd Moen takes us south of the equator to the remote jungles of South America in pursuit of big, hungry, top-water-eating Peacock Bass. Buckle up for this one.
Normally, large trout in smaller water spook very easily, so it is extremely difficult to get close. However, in late summer when the hoppers are around, big fish feed aggressively and get careless, much to our delight. In the following exclusive video, Surface Action, we explore smaller water using terrestrial patterns to entice big hungry browns and rainbows for some incredible surface action.
Two anglers, a remote river, and giant stone fly nymphs require an adventurous spirit. Bring a versatile rod like our Air Freshwater series, a handful of weighted stone fly patterns, and some paddling skills. Filmed by Todd Moen.
CHUCK AND DUCK
Watch our new film “Chuck and Duck” as we navigate gale force winds, heavy water, and extreme conditions, and bring out the streamer box and powerful rods. The new Alpha+ 5 & 6 weights make for excellent streamer rods in these extreme early season conditions! Filmed by Todd Moen.
