We all know that trout is the ultimate fish to catch on a flyrod. But since we also have feelings for other kind of fish, we also catch them. In a troutish way. Hopefully someone carries a camera. If yes, we proudly present it for you on troutification.com. Sometimes in a video, sometimes in a story and sometimes in a video and a story. Our basecamp is in south part of Sweden. But we travel wherever there’s trout.
There comes a time in all of our lives when we let ourselves dream about living life on our own terms. When we wrestle with the decision to take a step into traffic, follow our passions and live deliberately – or simply let another day, and daydream, pass.
This promo video is the initial statement of intent for a much larger film project that will be set against the diverse, rugged and breathtaking Idaho landscape and three of its most celebrated rivers. A Deliberate Life will explore the stories of five unlikely friends who share the same love of fly fishing and their choice to lead a life according to their passions.
Shoot location: Idaho, fall 2012

Armed with nothing more than fishing rods and cameras in hand, the GEOFISH series will follow 4 fisherman turned filmmakers as they travel around the world in a diesel pick-up converted to run on cooking oil while soaking flies at every opportunity they get. With a new obstacle around every corner and the determination of setting foot where few people dare to go, the angling quartet cuts their own path through some of the planets most rugged terrain on a mission to find the world’s greatest spots never fished.
