  • The Midnight Mission

A nighttime angling adventure in which two buddies “rescue” a fly-fisher who has given up the sport by seeking a monster lurking in the dark big enough to scream, “I’ll be back.”

Producer: Capture Adventure Media

  • Aniak

A 95-mile tributary of Alaska’s Kuskokwim River, the Aniak is full of rainbows, dollies, grayling, sheefish, northern pike and all five species of salmon.  This mouse-skating adventure features angler Brian O’Keefe fighting large, heavy-shouldered leopard rainbow trout in the Alaskan backcountry.

Producer: Todd Moen Creative

  • Bigotry to Brook Trout

A film of one man’s transformation from a life of ignorance and hate to quiet solitude on the waters of northern Minnesota.

Producer: Blue Forest Films

  • One Day

Meredith McCord, Ken Tanaka and Marc Crapo meet up with the Fish Partner crew and bring us along for One Day in Iceland. Yet another zany adventure by three-time IF4 winner Marc Crapo.

Producer: Marc Crapo

  • 104 Years

In search of an escape from the daily grind, the Hog Leg Fly Fishing crew sets off on an adventure to chase wild migratory brown trout in a remote river in an undeveloped corner of South America where there is a thriving population of truly mammoth-sized brown trout.

Producer: InTents Media

  • One Path

When Fly Fisherman Magazine editor Ross Purnell heard about a pristine river valley in northern Mongolia that was roadless and undeveloped, he knew it would be no ordinary fishing trip.  To get there, it would take a two-day journey by camel and horseback to reach the river. Then, a 100-mile 2-week float trip through a river valley in search of giant taimen.

Producer: Ross Purnell

  • The Road Home

A journey along a secluded Rocky Mountain stream filled with feisty cutthroat and large bull trout lurking deep under logjams. The film provides a grand cinematic experience intimately revealing the sights and sounds of a river alive with trout feasting on green drakes.

Producer: IF4 Original
