Emerald Paradise

Emerald Paradise presents the beauty and fragility of the Soča River in Slovenia; one of the most pristine and beloved Trout fishing rivers in Europe. Starring and directed by Laurens Bubendorfer, the film follows Laurens and his dog Charlie as he moves up river, fly fishing through the woodlands of Triglav National Park. Laurens explains the skills of dry fly and nymph fishing, a difficult pursuit in these crystal-clear gentle waters. After landing some beautiful Rainbow Trout he goes looking for the real prize of Slovenia, the Marble Trout; the bigger and rarer cousin of the Brown Trout known for its beauty and strength. We join Lesly Janssen as he sight fishes for an enormous Grayling, and get insight to the primitive art of Tenkara fishing with Guillaume Durand. As he finds himself in the nursery headwaters of the Soča, Laurens joins with the local groups trying to maintain a threatened population of genetically pure Marble Trout once thought extinct. Emerald Paradise is an intimate portrayal of a passion for fly fishing, and a provoking insight to a delicate ecosystem in need of protection.
