About

The Fly Fishing Channel brings you the best fly fishing action from around the world. Whether you’re a beginner looking for advice or a more experienced fly angler looking for inspiration, there’s plenty to enjoy here.

Fly fishing is enjoyed by millions of anglers around the world today in numerous countries and for an ever expanding list of species. The advancements in tackle development have seen anglers pushing the boundaries with what is possible to catch and anglers have travelled to all corners of the globe to find the next big fly fishing adventure.

The sport actually dates back thousands of years, its origins being traced back to the Macedonians in the 2nd Century,  but it was in England in the 15th Century that fly fishing really took off. Thereafter followed Isaac Walton’s world famous book, The Compleat Angler which in its 5th edition featured 12 chapters from Charles Cotton entitled “Instructions How to Angle for Trout and Grayling in a Clear Stream”

Since then thousands of books have been written  about fly fishing and in more recent times, dedicated magazines published. The video age has brought us dedicated fly fishing TV shows and films and The Fly Fishing Channel is a home to some of the best ones of these.

What’s on the Channel

The Fly Fishing Channel covers a wide variety of programs and films covering all aspects of the sport including adventure films, documentaries, tuition, fly tying and more. Most content is English spoken however there are some excellent programs too in native language which carry English subtitles.

Trout

Trout are probably the most widely sought after species with a fly rod. The development and popularisation of the sport took place in England as described in our film Chalk. The Victorian’s love of trout fishing, saw them take trout around the world colonising them into New Zealand, Australia, Tasmania, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Afghanistan and Argentina. Brown trout were also taken to the US to live alongside the native rainbow and cutthroat and brook trout. Trout make the perfect species to target with fly fishing as they live on a wide variety of aquatic and terrestrial insects and small fish which can all be imitated by carefully tied fly patterns. Typically, trout fly patterns can be broken down into 4 distinct groups, dry flies, nymphs, streamers and wet flies.

Trout are voracious and opportunistic feeders but can also be picky and they are incredibly wary of anglers so much be approached with stealth. For these reasons, they represent a fantastic challenge for the fly angler.

Salmon

The Atlantic and Pacific Salmon are the ultimate freshwater quarry for fly anglers. After being born in the river, both Atlantic and Pacific species migrate to sea and put on significant weight and muscle before returning to the rivers in subsequent years and it is then that anglers target them. The Pacific Salmon covers 5 distinct species, Chinook, Coho, Chum, Sockeye and Pink. Salmon do not feed at all once enterring freshwater, their only instinct to reach the spawning grounds so its still not fully clear why they take an artificial fly at all but its believed to trigger a memory of what they ate in saltwater. Salmon flies commonly therefore represent shrimp or bait fish rather than anything that actually lives in the river.

Fly fishing for salmon often involves the use of large double handed rods which are needed to cover the large rivers that salmon migrate up. This involves a completely different casting style to that of trout rods and the ‘Spey’ cast was developed on the River Spey in Scotland a fantastic river that can be seen in Blue Charm.

The plight of salmon in recent years has been of great concern to anglers and conservationists alike as numbers of returning Atlantic Salmon have dropped significantly in recent years. Films like Salmon Confidential and Atlantic Salmon Lost at Sea highlight some of the many issues involved.

Saltwater

Saltwater fly fishing has exploded in recent years and anglers are still discovering new and exciting species to target on a fly rod. Traditionally, bonefish, tarpon and permit were known as the main saltwater flats species to target. Rods and lines with heavier weights are used to catch these hard fighting flats species with artificial flies imitating shrimp, crabs or small fish.

Fly fishing for offshore species such as sharks and bluefin tuna can also  provide some spectacular results and game fish such as marlin or sailfish can also be targeted by fly rods once brought within casting distance of the boat using teasers.

In the southern states of the US, redfish, snook and sea trout are also common species to target with fly rods in lagoons and inshore fisheries whilst in the UK, more and more anglers are taking up saltwater fly fishing and trying for bass and pollack.

In tropical regions, like Alphonse in the Indian Ocean, Giant Trevally have become one of the most sought after fly caught species. Growing to prodigious sizes, aggressive and powerful, they represent one of the ultimate challenges for the saltwater fly angler.

Tuition

Fly fishing is possibly the most technically difficult discipline in fishing. Learning fly casting generally requires one to one instruction and a lot of practice. For consistent success fly anglers need to be good casters to present their flies accurately and delicately and the ability to cast at distance can be an advantage in some situations. Once the basics have been learned, then watching videos like Casting That Fly can help develop your skills further.

For the trout and grayling angler a good grasp of entomology certainly helps when identifying insect hatches and being able to match the hatch with the right pattern.

Fly Tying

Many fly anglers derive a great deal of pleasure from tying their own flies and using these rather than shop bought imitations. There’s just a little more satisfaction deceiving a fish on one of your own creations! Tying your own also enables the fly angler to develop his own patterns or variations of established patterns. Some anglers may be a little intimidated when starting fly tying so video series like Fly Tying Secrets could help you get started. The channel has specific series on salmon, trout, pike and saltwater fly patterns so go hit the bench!

The African Sharptooth Catfish is an incredibly hardy creature that can adapt to some of the most severe conditions that this continent can throw at it. Which is just as well, as during the recent drought, the water levels of the reservoir at Bloemhof Dam, have dropped to only 16% of normal capacity. Despite his concern for what the long term effects of low water will mean for the local human population, fly fisher Terry Babbage enjoys these conditions, as the Catfish or Barbel, as they are also known as here, are easy to spot and cast a fly to. He has found that making his fly splash as it hits the water attracts the Catfish and he has caught up to a hundred fish in a day using this technique. Which must be very tiring, as they all seem to put up one hell of a fight. To watch African Sharptooth Catfish now, just login or register

In this Alaskan Trophy Adventure, Paul Worsteling, Cristy and Jet are on the trip of a lifetime, staying at the ATA Lodge on the Alagnak River in Alaska. In this episode local guide Jacob McGee, takes them a few miles downstream to a stretch of the river known as the Braids. Here there are lots of deep holes, all holding massive numbers of Salmon. They expect to find Chum, King and even Pink Salmon, a variety that only returns every two years to spawn. Paul's convinced that the only colour fly or plastic lure worth using is pink, as it emulates the salmon roe, so his tacklebox is full of it. However there are so many fish in the river, it looks like you could catch with just about anything. To watch Alaskan Trophy Adventure now, just login or register

Brad and Jeremy are being hosted by the Alphonse Fishing Company in the Seychelles, one of the world's finest saltwater fisheries especially for fly fishing. Conditions aren't great, its windy and there's plenty of rain around which makes spotting fish nigh on impossible but the guys are itching to get out there regardless. They start on Bijoutier, one of the smallest islands in the area, walking the shore and looking for signs of fish. There's a pushing tide and a lot of bait fish around so they're hoping the Giant Trevally will show up for lunch..and it isn't long before they do! There's a reason why these fish are so sought after by fly anglers and its easy to see why in this stunning episode. After Brad has some back breaking  fun with a large 1m long Giant Trevally, they focus on the numerous Bonefish and Trigger Fish on the flats using crab patterns. The Bonefish are quite obliging but the Triggers or 'handbags' as the guys call them are a bit tougher, rejecting many flies and when hooked are very powerful for their size. The fly fishing here on Alphonse is simply incredible and even in adverse weather conditions, plenty of sport can be guaranteed. To watch, just login or register

Black Hole Sockeye - Another episode from Paul's recent trip to the ATA Lodge on the Alagnak River in Alaska. Here he heads 4 miles up river with local guide Megan McGee to the Black Hole, named not because it is murkily deep, but because it is so full of holding Salmon that the shoal appears as a huge dark shadow under the water. And every variety you can think of seems to be here, the Pink Salmon, that only visits every two years, Chum, Chinooks and of course Sockeyes. The Sockeyes are probably the best for eating, so Paul saves one and Megan's brother Jacob shows how to grill it over a wood fire beside the river.

The Kilombero Valley in South Western Tanzania is the destination in this episode as the Wildfly team explore the Rufigi River system looking for a very special target species, the Blue Tigerfish. The Blue Tigerfish really is a true freshwater monster growing up to 20lbs, almost 10lbs more than its South African cousins, and sporting a distinctive blue adipose fin. Gareth and Jeremy head into one of the River Kilombero's tributaries and their guide puts them on the spot immediately as Gareth hooks into a large powerful fish on his very first cast. On day two they move out of the main current of the river to a newly formed ox bow lake where the water is much calmer...well except for the aggressive tigers here which are smashing baitfish left right and centre. Using poppers, Jeremy soon attracts the attention of a tiger who smashes his fly on the surface before another thrilling fight ensues. Moving up river to some rapids, they decide to switch tactics and use fast sinking lines in a deep hole and Jeremy soon hooks into something very special, but is it the 20lb Blue Tigerfish from Tanazania he's been searching for?

In this episode Henry is fishing for Bonefish in Belize. This small Central American state sits between Mexico, Guatamala and the Atlantic Ocean and is home to the second largest coral reef system in the world. Henry is staying on an atoll in the middle of this at the Turneffe resort, surrounded by crystal clear shallow flats. He can cruise these in the boat of local guide Winston "Pops" Cabral or wade in about a foot of water. Bonefish can be found on the flats just about all year round, they thrive on the lush ecosystem and love to eat the small crabs that live here, so it is with an imitation crab fly, tied by his buddy Cory Koenig that Henry has success. The Bonefish here can grow to around 8lbs in weight but the average is 3-4lbs and Henry has a great session with "Pops" catching a few of these, only interrupted when half of his largest fish of the day is grabbed by a predatory Barracuda. There are plenty of tips on reading the conditions, casting techniques and choosing the right fly as well as another excellent recipe fro Dr BBQ Ray Lampe, this time grilled skewered shrimp with orzo salad.

Jon travels down to Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. In the 1950's it became the sport fishing mecca for Hollywood super stars such as John Wayne and Bing Crosby and it still attracts its fair share of celebrity A-listers. But its unique diverse marine ecosystem and a huge variety of species, makes it a must visit destination for any serious sports fishing enthusiast and the venue for some of the richest tournaments. Jon's spending a couple of days on board with skipper Grant Hartman, of Baja Anglers and he's set himself the target of catching a Roosterfish on the fly. To help him, Grant suggests they use the "Bait and Switch" technique whereby a member of the crew casts a hookless live bait to attract the fish, Jon casts his fly close to this, then the live bait is quickly reeled in on the first sign of a fish leaving it with only the fly to take. Other species seem to fall for this and Jon is quickly in to a few Sierra Mackerel as well as a decent Jack Crevalle before achieving his goal. To watch Cabo San Lucas now, just login or register

We're back on the Canals in this episode as the Anto and Charles are seeking a real monster trout. Charles who fishes here regularly has had trout on spinners up to 37lb and a has fly caught 32lb Brown Trout to his name which is just staggering. The pair start the day walking along the bank spotting huge Brown Trout and trying to tempt them. Its exciting fishing but it certainly isn't easy and one bad cast or visible angler movement and the chance is gone. There are a lot of fish here but the guys are finding it very tough so they move again to a new spot. Again they find a good area with fish rising and taunting them so they carry on but as the light fades, they lose visibilty in the water so decide to take a break until dark when they'll try again. In total darkness, they need to use UV flies and start by charging them up with torchlight. Finally Charles gets a take and lands a decent rainbow on his UV Doll fly. Abandoning the night session, they make an early start and its a cold but stunning morning as they start fishing again.  Anto fishes a sinking line and lands a nice rainbow to end his trip. So the trip is over and Anto returns home but a few hours after he leaves, Charles finally shows what Canal trout fishing is all about and lands a leviathan 30lb Rainbow Trout. Yep, I'll say that again 30lb! To watch just login or join

The McKenzie hydro canals are a series of man-made canals joining three lakes (Tekapo, Ohau and Pukaki) that provide excellent fishing for Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Salmon. They may not be as scenic as wild New Zealand but they offer consistently good fishing througout the winter and offer a great chance to catch a real monster. Trout here start their lives in the headwater streams of the mountains, before migrating down into the lakes and then into the canal system. Charles Smith is a local canal fishing expert and shows us why these man made waterways can offer a real challenge and some fantastic fishing. His guest is Anto Hall, an expert fly angler who is more at home chasing trophy fish on wild streams so this will be a steep learning curve for him. Condition aren't easy, in fact its snowing and the water is very clear so they take it turns with one angler spotting fish for the other and talking each other on to the fish. The fish are in spawning mode with the males acting agressively so the team decide to abandon nymph tactics and try and tempt them with streamers. But things aren't easy so the guys relocate to another canal to try and pick up a fish and after some frustrating fishing, Anto gets into a cracking fish and lands a stunning 9lber. There's some massive fish here and the guys fixate on something approaching 30lb but it just won't take and Anto has to settle for a 'small' 7lber! The fly fishing in these canals certainly proves tricky but when you're fishing for fish of this quality, one or two fish a day is a great result. To watch just login or join

Renowned UK fly anglers Charles Jardine and his son Alex star in this week's show and they are on the hunt for Arctic Char on the River Skardsa in the incredible Black Desert of the Highlands of Iceland.  They've barely got out of the car when Charles hooks into a fine Char and he's delighted as its his first ever. Alex also strikes early using heavy nymphs, and lands a lovely 68cm fish. Char of 10lb are not uncommon in this river and there's certainly some father son rivalry going on as they attempt to out do each other. Back at the lodge, Alex talks to Eggert whilst tying up some new flies and discusses the fact that the UK nymph patterns for Grayling work very well for Char too, as both species like to lie low in the water.  Back on the river the following day, the Jardines try a new pool and Charles lands another chunky 60cm fish and discusses his position on catch and release and catch and kill. Charles is mesmerised by the rugged landscape here and takes some time out from the fishing to indulge another of his passions, drawing, and creating a wonderful pencil drawing of Alex fishing the pool. In a final hurrah, Charles Jardine returns to the pool where he started and stalks another fine Arctic Char in clear water. To watch just login or join

Its early Spring and Ladin, Steve and Larry start fishing on the Clark Canyon Reservoir with a trip planned on the Pointdexter Slough later in the day. The ice hasn't fully melted on Clark Canyon so they're casting Woolly Buggers to the edge of the ice and stripping back, as this is where they fish will be patrolling. Ladin lands a lovely big Rainbow Trout and then talks us through his preferred set up here. Steve is using a Purple Seal Bugger fly and is next to strike with a lovely 3-4lb fish. Reaching the edge of the ice pack seems critical to success here and as the day warms up, so does the action with both Ladin and Steve landing some more big Rainbows. In part 2 of this episode, the guys fish the Pointdexter Slough, a spring creek that runs into the Beaverhead River in Montana. Ladin starts with a small purple streamer pattern in a nice pool locks onto a nice silvery Brown Trout. Steve is slightly downstream and using a different tactic, drifting a team of nymphs along the bank and also gets off the mark with a nice Brown Trout on his Hot Head Sow Bug.

Ladin and Steve are at Clark Canyon Reservoir in Montana trying to lock on to some hard fighting winter rainbow trout. Conditions look perfect despite being cold, with a light ripple and dappled sunlight on the water. There's some ice on the water so they start casting to the edge of the ice pack and retrieving their streamers with sharp 5 inch strips, varying the depth each cast to search the water column.  Ladin  gets an early hit but after a hard fight the fish manages to escape and Ladin is disappointed to say the least. But it isn't long before he has another on and this time, brings it to the net after another tough fight. A bead headed Woolly Bugger is the fly thats working best here and several more rainbows are caught. As the sun starts dropping into the Montana sky, Steve finally gets into the action, after switching to an Olive Wollly Bugger and ends up landing another stunning rainbow. This has been a great session with the guys landing rainbows up to 4lb on the Clark Canyon Reservoir, a perfect way to spend a day in midwinter if you're ever in Montana. To watch, just login or join

Ladin kicks off the series from Michel Creek in British Columbia on a beautiful autumn day, fly fishing for Cutthroat Trout with a good chance of a Bull Trout too. As you'd expect from British Columbia the scenery is stunning with the mountains as the backdrop and the trees starting to turn into those stunning fall colours. The creek looks very fishy with open banks, fast flowing riffles, pools and glides and a perfect habitat for Cutthroat Trout. Using a small black streamer, Ladin's buddy Steve strikes first, landing a perfectly formed Cuttie after a brief fight. As they move upstream, they take it in turns to fish in the more fishy looking runs, holes and pools and Steve loses a good fish before Ladin lands another pretty Cutthroat in a likely run. Switching tactics and using an indicator set up to drift a streamer downstream produces immediate results next as Steve hooks into and lands a strong 3lb Bull Trout. Dead drifting streamers like this can really pay dividends but as they move downstream they see a couple of rising fish so quickly switch to dry flies to entice a couple more nice Cutthroat.

Ladin and Steve are on the St Mary River in British Columbia and fly fishing for Cutthroat Trout. Steve starts by casting a size 12 Yellow Stimulator into a run under some overhanging trees and gets a hit straight away which he misses but then hooks up the same fish on the next cast. The water is crystal clear and the fish are hitting the flies quickly so quick reactions are needed. Ladin lands a nice one before they move upstream to another hole where Steve misses a couple before switching to a Prince Nymph and landing a small Cuttie. They return to the original run and decide to run Ant patterns through this time with immediate success as Ladin scores with another Cuttie. In the second part of the show, they fish on Findlay Creek in Canal Flats, British Columbia. This creek is completely different with steep cliffs on both sides and a strong flow. Heavy nymphs are the order of the day and Steve strikes first with a nice Cutthroat on a Prince Nymph. Ladin follows suit using the same tactics to land another Cutthroat.  In the final part of the show, Ladin is on a small tributary of the Elk River, and drifting a Pheasant Tail Nymph down a fast run. He's not using an indicator, just looking for any movement in the line and expertly hooks a nice Cutthroat which fights hard in the flow. As evening approaches, Ladin is running his size 18 Pheasant Tail nymph down a lovely pool and hooks a huge Cutthroat which the pair estimate at 18 inches. To watch just login or join

For many,  dry fly fishing is the pinnacle of the sport when fishing for trout due to the visual nature of observing the fish rise to your imitation fly. As Tom explains, the best times to target fish on dry flies is during a hatch of aquatic flies or when terrestrials are prevalent on the surface but trout can be caught at any time on dries providing they are looking up. Having a good undertanding of rise forms and how a trout is feeding can often reveal what its actually feeding on and Tom discusses how observation is key before we start casting to rising fish. Tom shows a couple of tricks to help discover what insects the trout are feeding on before discussing fly selection and presentation. Drag is probably the number one reason a trout doesnt take a dry fly so Tom shows us some tactics to counter drag and get a good drift over a rising fish. Next up is casting instructor, Pete Kutzer who demonstrates the Curve Cast which can be useful in certain situations when fishing dries. Tom then shows how to use high visibility dry flies for prospecting when fish aren't rising which can be particularly effective in shallow riffles.  Tom visits the Gallatin River in Montana and puts all this into practice, prospecting with a dual dry fly set up using a Stimulator and Elk Hair Caddis. Finally Tom hooks with up with Dave Jensen in Alberta for some small spring creek fishing. To watch just login or register

Host Paul Worsteling and his brother-in-law Greg Ison are heading out of Melbourne and up to the Goulburn River in search of some Early Season Rainbow Trout. Luckily for them, a few days earlier the Victoria Fishing Authority released over 7 tonnes of stock fish into this river system, most of which were monster Rainbows. The two have found an idyllic location, parking the caravan just yards from a beautiful, wide bend in the river, so its only seconds before they are casting their lures in. Paul is using his favourite Rapala jointed brown trout pattern, but it is Greg who is the early star of the show, hooking a couple of massive Rainbows on his trusty spinner. After Paul manages to get in on the action, Greg ends the session with a genuine trophy fish at 5.8kgs or 12.8lbs. To watch Early Season Rainbow Trout now, just login or register

The remote wilderness of the North Island's East Cape is a labyrinth of gorges, spurs and deep bush forest and in this episode fly fishing champion Cory Scott and his mate Chris Sharland will explore the area by raft.  The East Cape isn't particularly reknowned for its fishing but there are good fish here and the plan is to try and find the best areas by covering a large distance on a 4 day raft trip. This is a real journey into the unknown as neither angler has fished here, but by using their knowledge and focusing on likely areas of the main river and the tributaries, they are hopeful of success. A few hours in, and they find a nice looking tributary. Making their way up to the nearest pool, Chris soon hooks into a good Rainbow Trout fishing nymphs under an indicator.  A succession of rainbows and finally a brown trout follow from the same spot and the pair believe these are fish that have moved in to the tributary from the main river after recent rains. Finding another pool, this time it's Cory's turn to start and he soon locks onto fish after fish in the glacial blue waters. Day 2 begins and they have an 18km paddle before they can start fishing in the next tributary where they think there may be some bigger Brown Trout. Its an arudous paddle and there are some tricky rapids which Chris finds out all about as he takes a dunking but eventually they reach the tributary and start fishing again. Moving upstream, they pick out the best looking holding pools in a relatively small stream but can't find any trout home so return to the main river to find some trout and avoid a blank for the day. As their East Cape exploratory trip concludes, there's still time to find one more stunning tributary holding some excellent trout. To watch just login or join now

Ladin and Steve are in the upper reaches of the famed Elk River in British Columbia, and fly fishing for Cutthroat Trout. After taking a brief respite from a passing storm they return for a couple of hours fishing in the evening sun. The river is fast flowing here so they start by focusing on the likely looking pools where fish should be holding. Ladin finds a nice piece of slack water where a tributary joins, drifting a dry down the seam, and is soon into a small but punchy Cuttie. Ladin and Steve move upstream where the water is quieter and they notice a good hatch of mayflies, with both spinners and duns around, so Steve tries some speculative covering of the water. In an instant, he gets a beautiful head and tail rise to his Purple Haze mayfly and a big Cutthroat is on. In fact not only is it big, but it's the biggest either Steve or Ladin have ever seen so there's huge relief when it comes to the net and they can revel in this stunning fish. They're obviously in a good area with big fish around that are confidently taking mayflies so Ladin is keen to see if he can get in on the action. It isn't long before another big fish is spotted and Ladin covers it with instant success, as the big Cutty sucks down his imitation. Surely Ladin and Steve can't both catch personal best Cutthroat Trout on the same day from the magical Elk River? To watch just login or join

In Fishing Close to Home host Tom Rosenbauer bebunks the myth that to enjoy great fly fishing you have to visit a remote mountain stream armed with a ton of specialist gear. He demonstrates that it's quite easy to find marvellous ponds, lakes and rivers near to where you live and that on these you can enjoy a fun day's fishing for a wide variety of species, equipped with only a basic fly rod and lightweight tackle. The marina at a local lake or the pond in the middle of a city park are good examples of very accessible places to go. And you don't have to be targeting Trout. Tom explains how the Carp, generally regarded with disdain by most anglers in the US, is rapidly becoming a must catch species for the discerning fly fisher, due to the challenge it offers being easily spooked, difficult to hook and very hard fighting. He offers plenty of tips on where to find and how best to hook them. To watch Fishing Close to Home now, just login or register

With plenty of different fish to target when fly fishing on the saltwater flats, there's one in particular that can test many of the fly anglers skills and that is the Triggerfish. It requires a stealthy approach, accurate casting, a gentle presentation and a good deal of patience as flies are often ignored. Their appearance also belies their performance as these strange looking fish of which there are 40 known species, can put up an amazing fight. Gareth's first encounter with one on St Francois results in him chasing it down the flats only for the fish to wrap him around a rock, but the guide is quick to react and Gareth is soon holding his first ever Trigger. Triggerfish predominantly feed on crustaceans on the coral flats so crab patterns are commonly used but you do need to bring lots of them as break offs and fly damage are par for the course as Gareth soon finds out. Fly fishing for Triggerfish offers an exciting and different challenge to the saltwater fly angler and the islands of Alphonse and St Francois in the Seychelles are world class destinations for them as you'll soon find out in this episode.

Today, Ladin and Steve take to the boats, fly fishing the Grayling Arm of Hegben Lake in Montana. Hegben Lake is actually a large impoundment of the Madison River and is renowned for its trophy Rainbow and Brown Trout, plus its spectacular mountain backdrop. Steve starts with a Green Mayfly Nymph and a small Chironomid pattern, fished under a strike indicator and quickly catches a plump little Brown Trout where he saw some fish rising. Conditions are perfect today, with a light ripple and some decent cloud cover, and Ladin soon gets into the action too, again fishing a Red Chironomid under an indicator. These Rainbows fight hard in the cool water, making some big jumps and searing runs which Ladin finds out to his cost as a bow takes him around his anchor. Steve decides to switch tactics and uses a sinking line and just tweaks the nymphs back, but as the day comes to a close the nymphs stop working so well so Ladin switches to an Olive streamer and hooks another hard fighting Rainbow. Ladin and Steve have enjoyed an epic session on Hegben Lake, with numerous hard fighting trout and are certain to be back here again. To watch just login or join

Undertanding the dynamics of the currents on rivers and streams is critical to success when fly fishing on moving water. In this episode, host Tom Rosenbauer delves deeper into the essentials of moving water, where fish lie and how to best reach them. The current can be friend or enemy as it will naturally bring your fly to the fish but can also have a detrimental effect when it catches the fly line, enabling the fly to drag and look unnatural. Tom discusses the various upstream, cross stream and downstream casts you'll need and how best to avoid drag by mending the line. Tom shows us the Reach Cast which excels when fishing conflicting currents and enables an aerial mend to be placed in the line before it has started drifting downstream. Slack line casts such as the parachute or pile cast can also be useful when trying to get that drag free drift and Tom and casting instructor Pete Kutzer show how its done. Tom then discusses hooking and playing fish in fast water before ending the show by demonstrating us how to wade across rivers safely. To watch, just login or register

Its October and there's a chill in the air but the river is clear and conditions look really good. Steve loses his first fish but then gets a take on a Stonefly Nymph and lands a stunning 18 inch Cutthroat. Moving to anther run, he dead drifts a streamer under an indicator and hooks another big Cutt which unfortunately gets away just as he was trying to net it. Moving downstream, Ladin finds some lovely water with a good flow on it and lands a nice fish on a black and red streamer. He then sees some  fish rising fish on the far bank so calls Steve in who has a dry fly ready to go. Steve lands another as Ladin also switches tactics, putting on a Purple Haze Mayfly to land the best fish of the day, a stunning male Cutthroat with incredible markings.

Tony Jay, shows you how to tie two popular fly patterns, the Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear and the Adam's dry fly. Both of these great flies, the GRHE as a nymph and the Adam's as dry fly are tried and tested patterns that will work on all manner of fish from brown trout, rainbow trout and grayling but of course also on many other species. The GRHE is to be fished as a nymph under the surface if the water, it pretty much imitates most of the trout's food items and that's why it's so successful. The Adam's dry fly is a kind of panacea for most anglers, it kind of covers everything in the Olive or upwing  family and so it's generic profile makes it a  number one choice. The great thing about these patterns is the fact that you won't be needing any fancy materials to be able to create them, these flies are simple to tie with minimal materials and yet they are still very effective. Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear: Hook: Wet fly any size Thread: brown or black Tail: Hare's fur Body: Hare's fur Rib: Gold wire Thorax Cover: Pheasant Tail Fibres.   Adam's Dry Fly: Hook: Dry Fly any size Thread: Light coloured Tail: Natural Cock Fibres Body: Grey Dubbing Hackle: Grizzle and natural game mixed.

In this episode Jon heads to the Sailfish Oasis Resort on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, which because of its excellent, long standing catch and release policy and the absence of any large commercial fishing is renowned for its billfish and tuna. He's on board the Allure II for a couple of days with the aim of catching a Sailfish on the fly. The only way to do this is by using the bait and switch technique, where the crew attract a fish to within casting range, using hookless baits or plugs, then Jon casts his fly at the fish as the teaser is quickly pulled out of the way. Sailfish are one of the fastest fish in the water and use their speed to generate some impressive airtime when they jump, so reeling them in to the boat is always exciting and hard work. Jon also samples some typical Guatemalan cuisine and nightlife, in the nearby city of Antigua, as well as visiting an ecologically conscious coffee plantation.

Guyanan Arapaima on the Fly - The Arapaima is one of the world's largest freshwater species, growing up to 3 metres in length. It is native to the Amazon and Essequibo basins of South America, where it has been an important source of food. Its numbers have declined alarmingly due to overfishing and habitat loss. The Rewa Eco Lodge on the Rupununi River in Guyana was established to survey the species’ migration and breeding behaviours, which were previously a mystery. As part of this program they offer visiting anglers the opportunity to catch 400lbs of living dinosaur, on a catch and release basis and only on the fly. How could Jon Haas turn down such an opportunity? As well as getting his chance to hook one of these monsters, there's plenty of other rare species to cast a lure at, including fearsome looking Piranhas. He also chats with Dr Leslie de Souza, who is in charge of the conservation program, about the success she is having with tagging the Arapaima and seeing their numbers increase.

Ladin is fishing with Larry Hardie today on a fast flowing creek in Idaho which is running through a steep gorge. Fishing any likely pots and holding spots with a nymph and indicator, Ladin starts with a nice Cutthroat. The fish aren't big here but put up a great fight in the fast flow and seem willing to take anything that comes their way. Moving downstream a little, they find two deep holes next to each other so take one each and both catch Cutthroats in the fast water. They're mostly quite small as youd expect but there are one or two bigger ones and Ladin spots one on the far bank so decides to get wet and wades across to the middle of the stream. His reward is a 12 incher, its no monster but certainly a good fish here. As they move downstream further, it seesm that all the best holes involve a hazardous wade but Ladin is prepared for the odd soaking if it means better fish will be found. As evening rolls in, they move to the lower river which is a little wider but still with a good flow and some inviting runs. Larry loses a 16 incher at the net before Ladin lands a big male fish around the same size. To cap that he then catches two  stunning 18 inchers bringing a brilliant day's fishing in Idaho to a successful end. To watch just login or join

In this episode, Robson is joined by fellow actor and mad keen fly angler, James Murray, who is also new to fishing in Iceland. They are permitted a few casts on the renowned River Midfjardara where James catches his first Icelandic salmon, before moving to the world famous, Laxa-a-Asum, regarded by many as the best salmon river in Iceland. James starts on the Home Pool and is quickly into a fish, before they move up river where Robson starts fishing with guide, Sturla Birgisson. The water on this river is fast and shallow and fishing the hitch is the order of the day which makes for exciting takes and hard battles and it isn't long before Robson gets just that. With nowhere to hide, the fish runs downstream and Robson has to follow, finally landing the fish nearly 1/2 mile away. They then move to 'Clapton's Pool', named after Eric Clapton as its his favourite pool on the river. Guidem Sturla shows James the Old Sock fly that he'll be using and explains how the name of the fly and one of of Eric's albums came to be. Robson and James both recount how they met each other and why they've become such firm friends with their friendship cemented through fishing. James loses a couple of fish by playing them too hard before landing a nice Grilse. Next up its Robson and he hooks into a strong fish which takes him downstream before taking him around a rock and leaving Robson in tears. With fish in every pool in agressive mood, Robson and James continue to enjoy an epic fishing session, one that they will never forget or probably ever surpass. To watch just login or join

Its early March and Ladin in Steve are fly fishing on one of the many lakes on the Justesen Ranch in Oregon, in the shadow of the magnificent, Mount Hood. They take to single man boats with electric outboards and start by drifting along the drop offs on the shore line. Steve is the first into a fish and using a 9ft 5 weight, this hefty Rainbow Trout puts up quite a fight. Not to be outdone, Ladin is soon into the action as well, landing a nice but slightly smaller fish. Steve is doing the damage with a Pumpkinhead Leech, whilst Ladin sticks with his tried and trusted Woolly Bugger and it isn't long before he hooks into something much bigger which makes some powerful runs, before Ladin finally lands it. As the day wears and warms up, so does the fishing with both anglers, filling their boots with many fish in the 2-3lb bracket on their streamer patterns. Moving into a sheltered bay, Steve notices some Chironomid coming off so switches to 2 chrironomid patterns to match the hatch, and is instantly rewarded with a lovely 20 incher, which is quickly followed by an even bigger one. So if you're ever eastern Oregon, on this evidence, it may be worth your while to take a little trip to the Justesen Ranch for some spectacular fly fishing. To watch, just login or join

In "Kenai Rainbows" Jon Haas travels north to the lower Kenai River in Alaska. He's out with guide Matty Lewallen from Drifters Lodge at Cooper Landing and they're looking for large Rainbow Trout or Steelheads which are the sea-run variety. After catching his first one on a spinner, Jon switches to a pink bead, imitating the Salmon eggs that the trout are feeding on, with a float strike indicator. This seems to work rather well. In addition to the 'Bows he also nets a couple of "Dolly Varden" or Arctic Char, very similar looking to the trout. Its easy to see why the Kenai is the most popular sport fishing destination in Alaska, its vivid blue melt water runs through beautifully rugged scenery and as well as these Trout there are two runs a year of King Salmon and Shinooks and in deed the world record King Salmon at 44kgs or 97lbs was caught here.

King Salmon Alaska - Host Paul Worsteling thinks its pretty cool to be staying in a place thats called King Salmon. He's flown all the way from Australia to the heart of Alaska and he, Cristy and Jet are lodging on the Alagnak River. It's rammed full of fish. On the first morning he's out with guide Jacob McGee on a lovely bend in the river, where the slack water next to a sandbank attracts a shoal of Chum Salmon, they're a few weeks from spawning so have started to change colour, giving them the nickname "Zombie" or "Zebra" Chum. A few hundred yards up river and the colder water of an inlet attracts Arctic Char, they're feeding on salmons eggs, so choosing a bait is easy. Paul and Jet then head out after King Salmon or Chinook, they're very easy to spot in the water as their bodies are bright red. They are the largest of the Pacific Salmon and can grow to over 45kg. For a small diversion Paul joins a fellow Aussie traveller on a short walk to a nearby lake, the "Hike for Pike", and they're not disappointed as the king of freshwater predators is there in numbers.

The Kruger National Park is widely regarded as one of the treasures of Africa but what of the fishing there? The park was created to provide a protected natural sanctuary for the continent's endangered wild animals and so with limited human access, the rivers running through it are under little or no fishing pressure. So it was with great anticipation that Gareth George of the Wildfly team accepted an invitation from the park's Scientific Services Dept to help catch and study the variety of fish species to be found there, which would enable them to highlight any issues threatening their ongoing survival. They focus on the Sabie River, where there is concern that a dam project over the border in Mozambique is causing saltation. There's also the possibility that fish farms in the area that have introduced the Nile Tilapia, could be gradually cross breeding with some indigenous species. The fishing in the Kruger National Park proves to be excellent and as Gareth gets into plenty of Tigerfish and the odd Catfish. To watch, just login or register

The Arctic waters team have traveled to Finland’s river Kuhmo, this trip gives the guys a chance to relax and learn about this very special area. The trout fishing in this part of Finland is excellent and the numbers of lakes and rivers endless. One of the things that makes the fishing in this area and especially the river Kuhmo so good is the huge amount of environmental work being done here. Kuhmo rapids are the largest rapids improvement project in Finland and the improvements seen in both the fauna and flora is very evident. In this episode the guys have a real celebration of both old and young as they are joined by both Jasper Pääkkönen’s father Seppo and Jani’s daughter Nelda. It is Seppo’s 60th birthday and because he was originally from this area, he is very pleased to be back for this very important date in his life. Ten year old Nelda is proving to be a chip off the old block and is using this chance to learn as much as she possibly can. The guys spend some time with the volunteers who work on the river Kuhmo and its connecting streams, they learn about the project and why it is so important to the river’s future.

In "Kustatan River Silver Salmon" Jon Haas continues his trip to the Kenai region of Alaska with a day out, across Cook Inlet to the remote Kustatan River. Its mid August and the Silver or Coho Salmon arrived in the river 2-3 weeks earlier, they haven't begun spawning yet, but are making their way up the river and starting to take their holding patterns in the upper stretches. So an ideal time to be fishing for them. Jon's guide for the day is Ben Mastry from South Fork Outdoor Adventures, who recommends that, because the water is a bit murky due to the run off of glacial silt, it's best to use a bright pink and purple Dalai Lama fly with strips of glitter. His advise certainly works and Jon gets in to a bunch of fish. The Coho can grow as big as 36lbs or 16kg, but the average is around 10lbs or 4.5kgs, which are similar to the size of fish Jon is catching here.

The River Laxa in Dolum is another of Iceland's great salmon rivers. Boasting an average annual catch number of over 1000 salmon with just 4  rods available and a short season means action can be fast and furious here at times. The river is managed by the Hregnassi Angling Club and is situated in West Iceland just 2 hrs from Reykjavik. Eggert joins club marketing manager and guide, Haraldur Eiriksson, in late season, who shows us some of the best pools on the river which at this time of year are literally stuffed with salmon. This doesn't mean they are easy to catch though, having seen many flies and possibly been in the river for a few months, so as Halli explains, small sparse flies and delicate presentation are needed as well as the hope of a fresh fish or two arriving in the pool and seeing your fly. Laxa in Dolum is another reminder of what a fantastic country Iceland is for fly fishing and another reason to put it on your bucket list. To watch this episode, just login or register now

Professional guide, casting instructor and Atlantic Salmon Trust ambassador, Marina Gibson and her mother join Eggert and his team in this episode and start by fishing for Sea Run Arctic Char. Marina makes a great start to the trip landing a nice Char before they enjoy a hearty evening meal coupled with some excellent vocal entertainment from Icelandic singer, Kristina Skoubo Bærendsen. The following day and they move to the renowned River Midfjardara where they'll be fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon. After climbing down into a gorge on the East River, they start in the Dark Pool and Joanna Gibson is quickly into a fish they spotted, but after a strong fight, the fish slips the hook. Next up is Marina, who is fishing in the Black Hammer Pool, one of the best pools on this prolific river but as river owner, Rafn Valur Alfreosson (Rabbi), explains, anglers need to be wary here as a large submerged rock provides a great place for salmon to throw the hook. Marina hooks into a nice fish and is so pleased to be off the mark on this trip that a quick salmon dance is performed. She then hooks a much bigger fish but this one seems to know instinctively where the submerged rock is and regains its freedom. They move to the West River and find that conditions are tough with very low water. As Marina moves down Pool 407, which is stuffed with fish, she recounts the adversity she's faced in fishing and how the attitudes of some male anglers still need to evolve. As she hooks into a nice fish, other salmon jump around the pool, and Marina is relieved to land this fish in such tricky conditions. As the trip is concluding, Rabbi thinks there may be one last chance to catch a big salmon so they head to the Lower West River to the Tunhylur Pool. There are hundreds of fish here which seem reluctant to take in these conditions, but finally Marina hooks one and it is certainly the monster they've been looking for....now can she land it to cap the trip off in style?

McGinnis Lake sit on the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington State and is regarded as a top Brook Trout fishery. Ladin and Steve are in a single man boats with electric outboards which are all that's needed on this smallish 115 acre lake. They're using Fish Finders and seeing that fish are 15-2oft down on the sounder, Ladin starts by using a sinking line and buoant Booby Fly, which can prove irresistible to trout as the fly rises up and down upon retrieve. He's soon rewarded with a stunning 3lb brookie which puts up quite a battle. Steve decides to try a different tactic, using a Chironomid pattern or 'Buzzer' fished static under a sight indicator on a long 18ft leader, and soon starts getting lots of action. Ladin also then switches to the indicator method and catches another nice Brookie directly under his boat.  By keeping an eye on the finder,  they can see when fish are their area, the depth they're holding and adjuct accordingly and its really paying dividends today with lots of stunningly marked Brookies coming to the net. As the thunderclouds roll in, there's still time for Ladin to catch one last Brook Trout to the deadly indicator set up, which gives him a great tussle to end the session. To watch just login or join

Four years after their last visit to the Mohale Dam in the highlands of Lesotho, the Wildfly team find that the water levels are drastically down and that all of the feeder streams and rivers have virtually dried up. So they decide that the best place to fish is in the tailwater below the dam, which although rather difficult to access, has a reasonable flow. After a tricky hike down the canyon they find crystal clear water and some very spooky fish. Stealth tactics have to be applied in order to nab one of the Smallmouth Yellowfish or Rainbow Trout.

Steve misses out on this trip to Montana in July, so Ladin teams up with good friend Larry Hardie to go fly fishing on the St Regis River, a small stream offering pristine waters in a stunning mountain landscape. They are targeting Cutthroats, fishing in about 3 feet of water casting doubles to a riffle on the far side. Ladin's first into a fish, but instead of a Cuttie he hooks a Whitefish, these are small trout, commonly found in the clear mountain streams of the western states of America. Next up he does hook a lovely Cutthroat, the set up he is using is a Pat's rubber legged fly with a Prince nymph as his dropper. Larry has some success with the same pattern as they slowly move upstream, dropping in and out of pools casting to the changing riffles. Ladin hooks another Whitefish, this time it's a beauty, the all tackle record for Mountain Whitefish is over 5lbs and although his nowhere near this, it's still a lovely fish. Some anglers consider Whitefish to be a bit of a pest, as it's said that for every Cutthroat you catch you have to catch 5 'Whities' and Ladin seems to be getting more than his fair share today. Larry loses what looks to be a lovely Brown Trout at the end of the day, but his disappointment is abated when he hooks a decent Rainbow with his next cast.

Its a beautiful September day and Ladin and Steve are fishing on a crystal clear, small Montana Creek for Cutthroat Trout. They're looking for rising fish and fishing dries and Steve finds his first fish with a size 18 Trico Dry Fly. Ladin then spots a rise from the corner of his eye and covers the fish which sups down his dry fly immediately and he lands another nice Cuttie. Ladin finds a nice run and targets the tail of it underneath a steep cliff and finds a nice Cutthroat on a Pheasant Tail Nymph. After a couple of long distance releases, Steve finds a pool with a few fish rising but can't quite identify the hatch which could be Caddis, Blue Winged Olive or possibly something smaller. He finally hooks up using a Purple Haze Mayfly but is left disappointed as the large Cutthroat slips the hook. Ladin sees fish below him so tries a downstream slack line cast, just feeding the line out towards the fish and is rewarded with another nice fish which they think is a Cuttbow. With plenty of fish rising, they can afford to be selective and try and pick out the bigger ones, having cracked the code today. To watch just login or join

Luckily the local guides take them to smaller nearby rivers and, as the conditions improve, so does the fishing. With some fresh chrome Coho salmon around too, this soon turns into an epic trip.

In 'Mouse Trout' we travel to Fiordland, the largest of New Zealand's national parks, located at the bottom of South Island. As well as a large number of lakes and rivers, it has vast areas of pristine Beech forests. These are home to a variety of indigenous bird life as well as to the non native Field Mouse, introduced by trading ships in the 1800's. Every 5 or 6 years there is a phenomenon created by the Beech trees 'masting' or seeding. The field mice love Beech seeds, so this bountiful supply of food leads to a population explosion. During these 'plagues' the mice will venture everywhere in a scramble for food and at night will even swim across the rivers and lakes looking for floating seeds. Although not part of their normal diet, the Trout are attracted to what is a large furry meal flapping about on the surface. They knock the mice unconscious with their tails before eating them whole, head first. This high protein diet leads to prodigious growth rates and very large trout. So it's not surprising to find, during these Mice Plagues, keen fly fishermen out on the hunt for trophy fish. In this episode of Pure Fly NZ we follow Queenstown local Nick Geddes and his mate Anto Hall on an overnight session to one of the Fiordland Lakes. They have come armed with plenty of mouse pattern imitator flies and the patience to wait until after midnight. As the evening wind drops, conditions become perfect and an early recce shows that there are mice and Trout on the move. Anto's first fish is exactly what they came for, a whopping 14 pounder and from then on to say that the guys had a great night's fishing would be a bit of an understatement.

The Namibian Gold in question is the host of beautiful Large and Smallmouth Yellowfish found in the Orange River. It marks the boundary between northern South Africa and Namibia, Wildfly's Rhuan Human has put himself in the capable hands of guide and Yellowfish expert Anton Hartmann on a rafting and camping expedition through its barren, desolate landscape. The fish in the Orange River have developed large bulbous lips through grubbing its stoney bed for food and there was some debate over what size and pattern of fly would be most successful, but Rhuan finds that his large streamers prove to work best.

NORTH ISLAND, New Zealand fly fishing is regarded by many as the holy grail for trout anglers, but it seems to be the South Island that gets all the glory. This Film follows seven 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. Although very different from its more well known neighbour the North Island backs up why New Zealand fly fishing is so highly rated by Trout fishermen no matter which of the two Islands you find yourself on. As the guys in this film get deeper into the wilderness the fish just keep getting bigger and bigger, and that just spurs them on around the next corner even more. 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 back country.

In this episode of Pure Fly NZ, Matt Hince joins fellow fly fishing nut Andrew Harding on a camper van, North Island Tiki Tour. The rugged area of New Zealand's lower North Island, just outside Wellington offers a huge variety of fly fishing opportunities, from wide open rivers in gentle farmland, to small streams carved deep into mountain gorges. And it's into one of these steep valleys that they first descend, to find a crystal clear river. The guys opt for 5 weight rods, floating line and long leaders, so as not to spook the fish and a classic kiwi dry-dropper rig enables them to use both drys and nymphs at the same time. They've obviously got their tactics right as Matt catches a beautiful, large wild Rainbow on his first cast. Then its Andrew's turn and he too hooks a large Rainbow. The guys decide to split up to cover more water and both find fish in every pool they reach. As the day brightens up, the fish start to look upwards so the guys switch to single dry flies, again with great success. The steep climb back up to the van doesn't see quite so bad after such a fantastic day. Next morning they travel to find bigger water, Matt has one of those days when nothing seems to go right, Andrew though has another great session bagging a combination of large Rainbows and stunning Brown Trout.

Offshore saltwater fly fishing can offer amazing sport and many anglers do not realize you can use a fly rod and flies to catch some of the most prized offshore species in saltwater. In this fascinating and educational episode, Tom teaches the essentials of fly fishing in deeper saltwater for a wide variety of species. We see how finding structure and features offshore is crucial to locating fish and how rips form, offering superb fish holding areas. Looking for sea birds hitting bait shoals on the surface can also give some clues as to where to focus. Tom also shows how he uses chum to bring fish like Tuna and Dorado closer to the boat and within casting range. In terms of tackle, its time to step up your gear to 9,10,11 and 12 weight rods as typically you'll be targetting bigger fish and wind is a constant factor offshore. A bigger large arbour reel is certainly required and Tom also shows us the kind of lines he prefers to use offshore. We then look at setting the hook with strip striking and Tom demonstrates how to fight big fish around the boat and how to deal with fish that go aerial. Finally, Orvis Casting Instructor, Pete Kutzer provides an great tutorial on casting big flies in windy conditions something that is par for the course when saltwater fly fishing offshore.

In "Oregon Winter Steelheads' host Jon Haas joins John Krauthoefer from the Firefighters Guide Service on the Nestucca River in Oregon. They're fishing for winter Steelheads, a sea bound migrating variety of the Rainbow Trout family that normally have two runs a year on the Nestucca. On this stretch of river there is a very successful broodstock program which has helped reverse the decline in fish numbers to a point where they are now back to levels last seen in the 1960's. So Jon is hoping to catch a wild native hen, ready to spawn, that he can hand over to the project. Her eggs will then be used to create thousands of alevins or young fish that in turn will be used to stock the river. There's also some bonus footage of a spring fishing trip that Jon enjoyed on the neighbouring Trask River, where he was attempting a "mission impossible" of catching a spring Chinook on the fly.

The Arctic Waters team embark on an epic voyage to the Åland Islands to target the plentiful Baltic Sea perch that inhabit these unique brackish waters. The team are lucky enough to be staying in a fantastic B&B that is a stone throw away from the water and with no shortage of locals willing to share their knowledge with them, they really couldn't ask to be in a better spot. The Baltic Sea perch isn't the only fish on the agenda as these waters are home to a multitude of other freshwater species from Sea Trout and Salmon to Pike and Zander, it's these predators that the team are targeting, casting lures from small boats. This episode looks at how with sustainable management the Baltic Sea perch, Zander and pike can be harvested and used to feed the local people on these healthy and extremely tasty fish. The guys use a variety of techniques including drop shot, jig fishing and fly fishing in their search for the three main predator species that they are after, but it is the Baltic Sea perch that seems the most willing to co-operate and good numbers are landed each day.

The importance of reading the water for fly fishers cannot be stressed enough. Quite often it is impossible to see the fish if they aren't feeding off the surface. In this episode host Tom Rosenbauer is trout fishing, starting on a small, fast flowing river and points out the features and patterns in the water that give a clue as to where the fish might be. Trout like to hold up in slack water on the edge of a seam, where there is faster water flowing nearby. This brings food close enough for them to take easily, without expending too much energy. He shows where you can expect to find these hold up areas and how to cast, so that you optimise your chances of fooling the trout. Heads of pools, tails of pools, behind rocks and in front of rocks all seem to be likely spots. Orvis casting instructor Pete Kutzer demonstrates how to avoid the 5 most common casting mistakes, essential if you want to catch fish in fast flowing, tricky waters.

The brothers are fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon on the River Langa in the Myra district and its a river they are familiar with having fished here many times. After checking their salmon fly boxes, Gunni decides he's going to do something completely different and instead use his trout flies, specifically nymphs and streamers, to try and catch a fish. Before fishing however, they have a quick chat with river keeper Karl Ludviksson who recommends they use very small flies. They see plenty of fish in the river but they don't seem to be taking this afternoon after a chat in the cabin decide to move to a new location and a new river. The River Stadara is much smaller than the Langa but the boys are confident and in high spirits as they set out but after another poor session they decide to give up fishing today and pay a visit to a farmer who has some old rights to net fish on the river. Day 3 and they're on yet another river, this time its the River Haukadalsa that will host Asi and Gunni. And finally, late in the day Asi hooks a salmon on a small fly and lands a 55cm fish.  Now they've broken their duck, Gunni also hooks a salmon in the same pool and this one is big bigger  too.

With the stunning backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains, sits Kamberg Valley and the River Mooi which is well known for it excellent fly fishing for brown trout. The landscape is stunning and you could be mistaken for thinking you're in Scotland or Ireland which is probably why this river was chosen by John Parker as a suitable location to originally stock Brown Trout ova way back in 1893 and they've been thriving here ever since. With recent rain to flush the river out, Gareth and Rhuan make their way up river looking for some likely spots but the river is still carrying a little colour and they're unable to spot fish so decide to start with streamers and wet flies and searching tactics. Gareth soon finds some stunning little trout that eagerly take his streamers but Rhuan is after some of the bigger fish river is known for so they head into the lower reaches and start again in a tailwater area. Conditions are perfect with overcast skies and plenty of insect life and Rhuan is soon into a good fish. In 2012 the Mooi River was impounded creating Spring Grove Dam into which Bass and Rainbow Trout were introduced creating even more fly fishing opportunities in this area. So the following day Rhuan and Gareth decide to give it a try and focus on the shallows that have recently been flooded with the rain hoping the trout will have moved out of the deeper water to feed in these new flats. They have an epic fly fishing session catching several hard hard fighting rainbows in glorious Kwazulu-Natal sunshine. To watch just login or register

The damming of the Mooi River back in 2011 and the subsequent addition of a fish barrier, has created a stunning stretch of tailwater, throwing together a unique collection of fish species and an irresistible opportunity for any keen fly fisherman. The indigenous Natal Yellowfish or Scaly was joined by Brown Trout when they were stocked into the river in the late 1800's. They were later joined by Smallmouth Bass when they too were rather oddly introduced. The construction of the dam dislodged the surrounding Rainbow Trout and Largemouth Bass, throwing all five species together, creating a Royal Flush. The Wildfly team can't resist a challenge when it's thrown at them and vie to see who will be the first to catch all five species, on the fly in one day's fishing on the River Mooi.

Actor and fishing presenter, Robson Green kicks off the new series, fishing on one of Iceland's most famous rivers, Laxa in Kjos for Atlantic Salmon. Its early season, and conditions look great as Robson meets guide, Haruldur Eiriksson who shows him the lower river where the Salmon will first enter the river on the tide. Moving further up river, Robson starts fishing below a waterfall, which is natural barrier for the fish as they travel upstream, and is soon rewarded with a bar of Icelandic silver to get the trip off to a fine start. Robson recounts the tale of how he first got into fishing as a 7 yr old boy before hooking into another powerful fish which turns out to be a double figure Sea Trout and the biggest one he's ever caught. Day 2 sees Robson move location to another of Iceland's iconic rivers, the West Ranga. Here the river is much wider, allowing Robson to use a double handed fly rod to cover more water on the famous Home Pool. After seeing a fish follow his fly, Robson persists and is soon into a strong salmon which is certainly double figures. Thrilled to land his biggest ever salmon on fly, the moment is celebrated in style with a glass of Champagne on the river bank. And it isn't long before he lands another good salmon to cap a brilliant day's fishing and one he'll never forget. The next part of this adventure starts with a helicopter trip into the highlands, to fish the remote River Kjarra for Arctic Char, with Icelandic actor and guide, Hilmir Gudnason. Robson's biggest ever Arctic Char is only 1/2lb so this could be another record breaking day but conditions are horrible with high winds and fog around, so he needs to remain patient. It isnt long before Robson hooks into a Char but soon loses it before finally landing a nice Char which he's delighted with. Moving down river to another pool, Robson is thrilled to hook into and land a beautiful Brown Trout and tops off the trip with another stunning Arctic Char. To watch just login or join

This film is about flyfishing from the beach. We have deployed underwater cameras on the same locations we fish, gaining a unique insight into the underwater world of the sea trout. The cameras have caught schools of sea trout, prey and the current’s effect on the fishing. Stunning underwater photography shows the sea trout in its natural habitat, with the help of impressive clips by underwater photographer Lars Laursen. Through the underwater footage and two very experienced fishermen we gain new knowledge about the sea trout’s secrets. We have joined Claus Eriksen and Thomas Hansen on several fishingtrips during all four seasons on different locations. They share their wealth of knowledge in numerous tips and advice. With great catches, new knowledge and entertaining situations, this is a movie you have to watch over and over again.

In Sea Trout Secrets 7, we start fly fishing in late winter with Claus Eriksen on the Danish coast, near Fyn. Its February and the water is cold on the coast at around 2 degrees but its slightly warmer than in the fjords and as Thomas explains this can make all the difference when selecting a good location to target sea trout. He starts in very shallow water on a mussel bed and is soon into some nice sea trout but before long the fish lose interest. Claus explains every detail of his thinking to work out the correct tactic for catching these fish again, an example of why this series is such an excellent resource to learn from. Thomas Hansen then provides a masterclass on spin fishing for sea trout demonstrating how important it is to keep changing lures for continued hook ups and when the lures have run out, Thomas switches to a Gulp worm and continues to catch some lovely fish. Back with Claus on the fly, and its Spring and he explains how the behaviour of the sea trout can now be different with the fish often holding in small tightly packed shoals, so Claus likes a mobile approach covering plenty of ground to find them. As we head into Spring and Summer, tactics change again and Thomas and Claus guide us through more of their secrets for success. Sea Trout Secrets 7  is an excellent addition to the series covering successful strategy and tactics for both fly and spin fishing and aptly showing why Denmark is just such an incredible sea trout fishery.

Sea Trout Secrets 8 kicks off with a bang as Thomas is out for an early summer morning session and after finding some sea trout chasing sand eels and garfish he hooks into a cracking 6lb+ fish. He then shows us his 3 go to rigs for line through lures that he uses in different conditions and seasons. Thomas demonstrates his spin stop retrieve which he uses when fish are following his bombarda rig, and recounts the tale of when he used this on Odense Lake to catch a 96cm sea trout estimated between 9.5 and 11kg! Next we join Claus who starts by fly fishing for sea trout with surface lures. As Klaus explains, surface lures are unlikely to out perform sub surface shrimp patterns but this visual form of fly fishing is such great fun that is often worth a go if conditions are right. Klaus demonstrates his two main retrieves and lands several fish on the surface fly. Sometimes, fish will follow and miss the fly so he sometimes uses the surface fly to mark such fish and then change to a different fly to take them. Spring brings a worm hatch and the sea trout feed in the warmer shallows, as Claus shows us, with fish holding in 2-3 ft of water. Next Claus shows us the dropper system he developed which is interchangable and allows him to easily change droppers quickly. His friend further developed this dropper system which incorporates an ingenious twisted part of the dropper which prevents tangles when casting. In the final part of this film, the pair fish together in Autumn. Eel grass can be an issue at this time constanty snagging their hooks and fish won't take if the fly or lure has trailing weed on it so the pair show how they add weed guards to the fly and lure with spectacular success. Sea Trout Secrets 8 is another masterclass from expert sea trout anglers, Claus Eriksen and Thomas Hansen that will certainly help you when fishing for sea trout in the sea.

The team are in the stunning kingdom of Lesotho, fly fishing at Semonkong Lodge on the upper reaches of the The Maletsunyane River. The river was originally stocked in the 1950's with Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout and both species now thrive here along with the native Yellowfish. The browns here here can reach prodigious sizes and its not unusual to catch them up to 10lbs which is incredible for South Africa.  The water is very low and the sun bright as the Wildfly team start fishing, so knowing that the trout are likely to be in the deeper pools, they start by using weighted streamers to get down to the fish. Smallmouth Yellowfish and Rainbow Trout also reside here, often together in the same areas so Gareth decides to move downstream and soon picks up a nice rainbow. The team camp overnight in the stunning valley and make an early start with Jeremy landing one of the monster brown trout the river is known for, right next to the campsite. But the following evening, rain arrives and colours up the river making fly fishing difficult so the team head back down the gorge to Semonkong Lodge but will there be one last chance for Gareth to get the brown he is after?

In this episode, Tom introduces us to shallow saltwater fly fishing and explains exactly why its such an exciting way to fish with a fly rod. Renowned fly species like Bonefish, Redfish and Striped Bass love to move close inshore to feed on shrimp, crustaceans and bait fish and Tom shows you how to look for some telltale signs that fish are in the area. Fish move inshore on an incoming tide to feed and hang slightly further out on outgoing tide waiting for food items to be swept out so as Tom explains, focusing your fishing effort during these tide movements  is crucial for success. Tom talks through the tackle you'll need which is slightly beefier than you'd use in freshwater but you'll need a more powerful rod and heavier line to cast bigger flies and deal with windy conditions. Next up, Tom discusses how to stalk fish by learning how to spot them both above and below the water and then how to deliver the right cast at exactly the right time. A lot of shallow saltwater fly fishing is done from a flats boat and Tom discusses how to communicate with and work with a guide effectively. Casting instructor, Pete Kutzer then takes through some double haul casting tuition which is crucial for saltwater fly fishing to counter heavier winds, distance and big flies. Finally Tom shows us the importance of the strip strike which is key to getting hookups on shallow saltwater species. To watch just login or register

Its August and we start at the top of the River Sela with guide Denni and angler Gisli Asgeirsson. Taking it in turns to fish a pool and then hitch it, the anglers are soon into fish in the crystal clear river. Because of the water clarity here, the catch rate is as high as 70% for multi winter fish and 50% for grilse. Later in the day, the men split up and Gisli heads a short distance over to the River Vestadalsur which runs parallel to the Sela and into the sea at Vopnafjordur. He joins landowner, and Brtiain's richest man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe on the River Vestadalsur for an afternoon of high quality salmon fishing. Being the landowner has some distinct advantages as some pools haven't been fished all summer, dramatically increasing their chances of hooking up. After catching a few nice salmon, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has to get back to work and leaves his beloved River Vestadalsur so we rejoin Denni on the Sela who is also having a successful session and is now looking for bigger salmon.

Don and Dale are on the Skeena River in British Columbia fishing for steelhead, Coho and Chum salmon. Don demonstrates how to fish pocket water. He begins by fishing the run with a spey rod with long swings and then uses a shorter fly rod to search out the deeper pockets. On the Bench, Don ties up a Purple Flash, a deadly fly for steelhead.

Its August and Steve and Ladin are on a small stream, a tributary of the Elk River and hopeful for some great dry fly fishing for Cutthroat Trout. The stream here is shallow, clear, fast flowing and not very wide so perfect for knee deep wading and covering rising fish and likely looking holes and pools. Ladin starts in a nice pool and hooks up with 3 or 4 good fish but they keep dropping off so rather than continuing with the dry decides to give them another look at something and switches to a nymph. He thinks he's got one but it turns out to be a Whitefish and its turning out to be a frustrating morning. They move location and Steve strikes first landing a small Cutthroat on a Purple Haze mayfly, followed by a slightly bigger one. Moving upstream again they find a lovely pool with a steep cliff behind them. Ladin spots a small log which is stuck on the far bank and it  looks like perfect cover for a trout, so he covers the area with a dry and hooks up immediately. Finally he breaks his duck with a lovely 16 inch Cutty. There's no shortage of good fly water to try here and in the next pool Steve uses his Purple Haze again and a big 3lb Cutty sucks it down. Ladin then sweeps through the same pool using a Pheasant Tail Nymph and hooks another good fish. Working the pools like this together is a devastating tactic and so ends another memorable session on the small streams of British Columbia. To watch just login or join

Solitude
23:09 
For many the appeal of fishing is the solitude that it offers, and in this episode Jim, Derek and Paula take to the logging tracks to find the seldom-fished waters of the backcountry. The trout haven’t seen a fly for ages and the landscape provides an incredible backdrop and there’s only the bears and coyotes for company.

In this episode, the team are fly fishing for 'Willowgrubbers' in the Southland region of New Zealand's South Island. Many of the native bush plants have gone here and have been replaced by non native plants, like the willow, which can be found on many of the rivers' banks in the region. During summer, Willow Grubs, the larval form of the Sawfly populate these trees and many fall into the water. Trout just love them and will often ignore everything else when these grubs are around but they are small (6mm) and not easy to imitate. Local guide, Mike Wilkinson has invited his friend Rene Vaz down from Auckland to experience the Willow Grub fishing which is unique to this area. The summer so far has been poor as heavy rains have made the rivers unfishable but today the river looks in good shape so the pair set out with high hopes. The quickly find a couple of fish feeding on grubs but as Rene finds out, this isn't easy fishing and puts numerous casts over them with no success. Moving on they find another fish which is feeding heavily and this Mike shows Rene how its done and hooks up. Moving upstream they find more Willowgrubber feeding fish and catch 4 more stunning browns in quick succession. The rivers in Southland are famous for their high fish densities so when the fish switch on like they are today, the anglers can enjoy some epic sport. The following day, the guys decide to try a smaller creek where the fish are often much bigger than in the main river. Again they find more 'Willowgrubbers' and wrap up the trip with another great session in Southland. To watch just login or join

In Steelhead and Salmon host Tom Rosenbauer teaches the basics of fly fishing for these migratory species, generally regarded as the ultimate river trophy fish to catch on the fly. North America is home to a variety of large, migratory species. On the east coast it is predominantly the Atlantic Salmon but on the Pacific West coast, there are Coho, Chinook, Pink, Chum and Sockeye Salmon as well as the Steelhead which is a member of the trout family. All migrate at different times and require slightly different techniques, so provide a huge range of opportunities to the fly angler. Similar to river Trout these migratory species will hold up at various points along a river, but unlike Trout they are not feeding, they are just taking a break on their epic journey to their spawning grounds. Tom advises on how to find the fish, rod, reel, line and fly selection and casting strategy. And just to show how easy it is (if you're good) Orvis instructor Pete Kutzer shows 4 of the basic casts using a double handed Spey rod. To watch Steelhead & Salmon now, just login or register

In Stillwater Basics Fly Fishing we talk about the essentials of catching trout on lakes and ponds. Noted stillwater angler & author Phil Rowley hosts this fascinating episode in which he gives a comprehensive guide. Not all lakes are equal, one's that have shallow areas tend to be richer in a diverse range of foodstuff, enabling trout to grow to huge sizes, so choosing the right lake is most important. Once there, he explains how to use water temperature and visible or sunken features to locate the fish. That you must observe what they are eating and try to match it. Select the right rod and make sure that it is matched to your line, whether that is floating, intermediate or sinking and then that retrieving at the right pace with the right pattern is probably the most important thing when the water isn't moving.

Fly fishing with Streamers is certainly one of the best ways to hunt for trophy trout in rivers and lakes. Imitating bait fish, leeches, crayfish and large stoneflies, streamers are an excellent searching pattern and will often attract the bigger and more agressive fish.  Tom talks us through the various patterns such as the infamous Wooly Bugger, Sculpins and Crayfish. If the river is coloured and fish aren't actively feeding on the surface, Streamers can be a great option because trout can use the extra water colour to ambush their prey and a brightly coloured streamer cast into the right areas will be easy to find. Tom shows us the various retrieves you can use and ways to fish the streamer both upstream and downstream such as swinging or dead drifting. Its important to cover lots of water when fishing streamers as not every fish in the river will go for them and this is exactly why they are particularly effective when fishing from drift boats as Tom demonstrates on the Yellowstone River to good effect. Finally, Pete Kutzer shows us how to perform a Double Haul Cast which can also be helpful when fly fishing with big flies like streamers. To watch, login or register

Bob Clouser presents this in depth film about his most famous fly, the Clouser Minnow. Although known primarily as a saltwater pattern, the fly also works equally well in freshwater especially when fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass. Bob explains how and why he first invented the fly, before taking us through the materials needed to tie the perfect Clouser Minnow before expertly tying the pattern for us.  Bob then hits the water, and shows us the various retrieves that you should use to get the best action out of the fly and entice takes. Returning to the bench, Bob shows us some variations of the fly including tying a rattling version as an extra attractor for bass and adding a weed guard to the pattern. This is a brilliant film by the man who created one of the most famous flies ever invented and which now sits in the fly boxes of almost every saltwater fly angler.

This is a movie about fishing the dry fly. We join Morten Oeland on a number of trips to different waters in Denmark, Greenland, Germany, New Zealand and Swedish Lapland. We take a close look as he finds the insects the trout are feeding on, and when he chooses the right imitation in every situation. With underwater cameras we go beneath the surface for a closer look at fish, flies and insects from a brand new perspective. The recordings for this film have taken several years to complete. The movie is instructive, inspiring and well filmed with lots of good spirits, fishing action and great catches.

The guest in this episode is Atlantic Salmon Trust representative, Tiggy Pettifer, who starts her trip on the Faxi Waterfall Pool of the Tungufljot River in Southern Iceland. Many fish hold in this stunning pool and Tiggy is getting lots of fish chasing but not actually taking her fly, before she finally hooks into a lively Grilse. With an action packed schedule, its time to move on and Tiggy travels to the world famous Lake Thingvallavatn, home to monster Brown Trout, and although not being the best time of year to fish here, she's keen to give it a go. Flat calm and bright conditions make a tough day so its time to move again and Tiggy finds herself on another iconic river, the Grimsa, in South West Iceland. Tiggy discusses the work the Atlantic Salmon Trust have been doing to help the decline in Salmon, and in particular the Missing Salmon Project which is providing vital data in discovering where, when and how fatalities are happening. Leaseholder, Jon Por Juliusson is guiding Tiggy today and gets her straight into a nice fresh Grimsa Grilse above the lodge. The following morning, they head to one of the uppermost pools on the river and Tiggy is extremely excited as there are many fish here which are jumping and showing constantly. Back to the main Waterfall Pool at Grimsa, which always holds plenty of fish and can only be fished by climbing down a vertical ladder in the cliff face and roll casting to cover the fish in the heart of the pool. Tiggy gets into a fish in the main current but on landing it, discovers it to be an invasive Pink Salmon which unfortunately is becoming more and more common. There's still time for Tiggy to catch one last fish in tricky conditions, as she reflects on what makes salmon so special and the place she has in her heart for them. To watch just login or join

The Tongariro in New Zealand's North Island, is a world reknowned fly fishing mecca for Brown and Rainbow Trout and the spawning run in Winter when the fish leave Lake Taupo and run it, one of the prime times to fish it. This fishery used to produce fish of huge proportions but declined for several years in the early 2000's when the average fish size dropped significantly. The fishery has made resurgence in recent years so the Pure Fly team decided to give it a try. New Zealand's only registered female fly fishing guide, Hannah Clement leads this expedition with her partner Tom Hodge. who have driven up from the South Island to sample the fishing. The conditions aren't great as recent rains have coloured the water so they enlist the help of local guide, Andrew Burden who fishes the Tongariro every few days. But despite trying, the river just keeps on rising so they need to write off the day and wait for the river to drop. Overnight, it drops a metre and Hannah gets into a fish immediately the next morning using a Chautreuse Glo Bug under an indicator set up. The river is now full of fresh run rainbow trout that have run with the flood conditions and will attack anything drifted past them so he guys enjoy a fruitful session although Tom is certainly being outfished by Hannah. Day 3 and the river has dropped further so the team decide to head upstream and meet another local guide, Mike Kirkpatrick. As they reach Mike, they see he is already into a fish so things look hopeful for another good day. Hannah immediately lands a nice rainbow followed by a stunning brown trout and the team really show what a fantastic fly fishery for trout the Tongariro is. To watch just login or join

In this episode of Fins & Skins Classic Adventures host Henry Waszczuk heads west to Kamloops, BC in the Canadian Rockies for a Trout on the Fly match up against Richard Zokol. Richard is an ex-pro golfer having won on the PGA tour, so Henry will need to build up a big lead on the trout lake before they head to the course. Henry warms up his casting arm by joining local guide Mike Porco on one of the 100 lakes in the area holding Rainbows. These Rocky Rainbows have very distinctive markings with a vivid pink band along each flank. The match with Richard takes place on one of the resort lakes, with the guys fishing from the bank. Its 1 point for each Rainbow landed and a bonus 3 points for the largest fish. Can Henry build up that lead that he needs? As not only is he taking on a pro golfer, they're playing at Sagebrush Golf & Sporting Club, on the course that Richard actually designed himself. Talk about home advantage.

The pilot episode in a new series called Arctic Waters. In this episode the team visit two rivers in Northern Finland reknowned for their great fishing, the Tornio and the Ounas. This area is well set up for the travelling fisherman and their families with many lodges available during summer and it needs to be as Finland boasts the highest fishing participation level for fishing worldwide as over 50% of the population do so. The Ounas was once famed for salmon but due to obstacles the salmon no longer run but it remains a haven for trout and arctic grayling. The team and experts discuss the potential of the Ounas as a salmon river...could they thrive here again? The Tornio, on the other hand is possibly the most famous baltic salmon river in Finland with over up to 100,000 salmon spawning in the river each year. The rod catch isn't bad either with 10-20,000 caught on the river annually. The river is wide in places so must be fished with a boat but offers great opportunities for both fly and lure anglers. The show is presented in Finnish with English subtitles.

The Mayfly is one of the most celebrated insects amongst fly anglers around the world and mainly because their annual hatch invariably triggers a frenzy from trout and grayling. This upwinged insect has an incredible lifecycle.....after living in the river as a nymph for a year, its life ends 24hrs later as it falls to the river to lay its eggs and start the cycle again.  This final 24hr period is crucial to trout as they intercept the Mayfly as it leaves the river bed, swims to the surface, hatches and then lands again several hours later. Fly fishing expert, Barry Beck talks us through the various stages of the Mayfly before demonstrating tying the imitations he likes to use. After each tying of the nymph, emerger, dun and spinner, Barry takes to the river and shows how he fishes these patterns and proves how well they work. To watch, login or register

Lefty Kreh and Bob Clouser are on the fly tying bench together and showing us some deadly saltwater and freshwater flies. They start by demonstrating bend back flies with Bob showing how he ties a Bendback Clouser. Next its Bucktail Deceivers, which are easy to tie and which look fantastic in the water. Despite being quite large flies, this pattern is lightweight and therefore can be cast using 8 or 9 weight rods. It can be used effectively for saltwater species like snook, tarpon and redfish as well as Northern Pike in freshwater and in smaller sizes for largemouth and smallmouth bass. Lefty and Bob then tie classic versions of their two most famous patterns, Bob's Clouser Minnow and Lefty's Deceiver and discuss how many variations can be made once the style is mastered. Bob then shows us the Maxi Minnow which can be 6-9 inches long which is sometimes crucial to attract larger fish, whilst Lefty's shows us the Hackle Fly, a classic bass pattern. We watch Bob tie his BP Clouser tied on a smaller hook which is fantastic for bonefish before Lefty discusses Popping Bugs which are excellent in both freshwater and saltwater and then shows us how he makes a popping bug from scratch. Finally, Bob and Lefty demonstrate the Half and Half, which is....you guessed it, half Clouser Minnow and half Lefty's Deceiver. Tying Flies that Catch Fish is a timeless instructional video as you can be pretty sure that the patterns invented by these two, will be catching fish for eternity.

The 2nd season of Pure Fly New Zealand kicks off in real style as best mates and fly fishing guides, Jeff Forsee and Ronan Creane show us what the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island has to offer. Sandwiched between the Southern Alps and the Tasman Sea, the West Coast is a relatively thin strip of land but it has holds a myriad of rivers, lakes and creeks and it is here that the Brown Trout dominates. After camping overnight, the guys decide to start their adventure on a nearby lake, taking to a boat and manouevering it close to the shoreline. Ronan fishes first and it isn't long before he sees a beautiful brown feeding in the margins and quickly hooks up. Liking the look of the area, they decide to bank fish, stalking fish close to the shore and taking turns to target them. Working as a team like this really pays dividends in this environment and it isn't long before they have two good fish netted, one after another. After a good night's sleep, the guys decide to try a nearby river and Jeff soon finds a really good fish cruising in a backwater but despite some follows, it just won't take. Jeff decides to try the main river, when the drone cameraman tells him of 2 big trout he's spotted, and its an opportunity that he just can't refuse. So thanks to modern technology, a stunning aerial film sequence of the trout taking his streamer ensues and a huge brown trout is landed after a strong fight. Next its Ronan's turn and at the head of the next pool, they spot another big trout actively feeding in the current. Can Ronan get on the scoreboard today? This is turning into a red letter day and they find fish after fish as they move up river and we see why the fly fishing on New Zealand's West Coast is just so revered. To watch login or join

On  the plus side, Gunni has miraculously found his lost leader material that he dropped from the bridge earlier. Deciding to rest the pool until later, they head upstream to a stunning waterfall but again find no fish. Returning to the fishing cabin for a break, they discuss the tactics they'll need to employ to have some success here. Recouperated and invigorated, they head back to the bridge pool and split up determined to get a char on the bank. All of a sudden Asi hooks up and a nervewracking fight ensues with a good sized fish circa 2.5lb,  that Gunni is keen to use for his latest char recipe. After landing the stunning char, they head to the shore of Onundarfjord and prepare a delicious char dinner. To watch, login or join

A huge part of a trout's diet comes from subsurface food items so in this episode Tom Rosenbauer covers the basics of using wet flies and nymphs to imitate this feeding behaviour. Wet fly fishing has been around for centuries and is typically most effective in fast shallow water. As Tom demonstrates, it allows the angler to cover a lot of water, swinging the fly across the current downstream on a tight line which usually results in solid hookups. Mending the line is also crucial enabling the angler to control the speed of the fly as it passes over fish.  Pete Kutzer then shows us some casting techniques to help throw leaders with strike indicators or heavier flies to avoid tangles and hitting the rod. Next up, its nymphs which offer the angler the opportunity to catch fish in all conditions as trout will rarely refuse a well presented nymph. Tom first discusses presentation and getting a drag free drift before moving on to bite detection which can be tricky without the use of strike indicators. Tom discusses the advantages of short line nymphing and high sticking and then shows us some techniques to keep the indicator working well when long line nymphing. Finally Tom meets up with Molly Seminek in Montana and shows us to fish nymphs from a drift boat which is a deadly technique as the guide does a lot of the work by keeping the boat drifting at the same speed as the indicator. From fly selection to presentation options, Tom details all the essentials you need to get started with wet flies and nymphs. To watch, just login or register

This pattern is based on a whistler fly, combining a dumbbell head with a large back-tied body in red and white. The addition of a few strands of sparkle makes it irresistible to pike.

In this episode Ladin and Steve get to fish Wild Rose Lake on Rocky Ridge Ranch, Oregon. It's a clear crisp day in March and the guys each have their own one-man raft out on the water. The lake is stocked with Kamloops Trout, which is a strain of Rainbow, as well as Hybrids and the guys have to troll the lake before finding fish close to a reed bed in one corner. They are both using Chironomid patterns, imitating the non-biting midges that are naturally found here and on which the trout love to feed. Ladin is using a 5 weight rod with a floating line and then a combination of chironomids, a black one above a red dropper. And it's the red one that seems to be doing all the damage as both guys catch a load of good sized hard fighting fish. Its obviously a very peaceful way to enjoy a great day's fishing, topped off with the spectacular views of snow capped Mount Hood in the distance.

Winter is coming and Ladin and Steve are back fly fishing on the Elk River in British Columbia on a brisk October morning. Conditions look promising so the pair start with Ladin using a nymph indicator set up and Steve on streamers. A few hits and misses for both anglers follow, before Ladin finally hooks up, but after a short fight the fish drops off. Steve then lands a lovely fat Cutthroat and Ladin decides to move on to using streamers too. Using a black streamer, called a Muddy Buddy, Ladin works the pool using classic down and across, swinging tactics varying the retrieve and depth. He quickly scores with a couple of lovely plump Cutties. They move downstream as the sun breaks through and find a stunning looking pool set against the backdrop of the snow peaked mountains. Once again they find success with the Muddy Buddy with Ladin landing a 20 inch, possibly 4lb Cutty. Steve then spots some fish rising in the slack water created by a fallen tree, so casts a dry into the area and is rewarded with another lovely Cutty. A fantasic session from the guys, just proving just how good the fishing on the Elk River can be in winter. To watch just login or join
