A River Somewhere in Bhutan

first of all, Bhutan’s here-


secondly, filmed somewhere around 1996/97, perhaps a quasi-prehistoric era by contemporary fly fishing film standards, this adventure to what’s basically an unheard of trout fishing location brings us back to basics; there are no bells and whistles, gopros or drones that attempt to intensify the viewer’s experience.

what we do get however, is an honest and simple documentary of what must have been a unique and extremely rewarding experience: the kind that can’t be forgotten or compared to another.

its thirty minutes long so please reserve a quiet time to view this. actual fishing starts seventeen minutes in but then, and they do find gorgeous brown trout, that’s just a reminder that it’s all/mostly about the journey.

thirdly, enjoy !

  1. Was expecting Hardy bamboo rods Marc…I suspect it’s later than 1995, but a beautiful film nevertheless…tks for sharing….rgds.

    • hi Tony,
      the 96/97 i found was from the video’s comment section from someone who might have been part of the making of the film.
      (it’s not important and neither are bamboo rods 😆 )
      hope you’re well and happy, looking forward to meeting again !
