Hatches Theater- Troutification, Deliberate Life, Geofish

featured, Videos — By on August 15, 2012 3:06 pm

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

The plan is simple: bridge the language gap, convince the Federales that you’re not trying to smuggle cooking oil into the country to corner the market on cheap fish tacos and at the same time, spend little money, sponge off the local delicacies and see if you can kill stomach cramps with a combination of tequila and lack of sleep. Trying their best to avoid break-ins, break-downs, break-ups and broken rods, join four fish bums as they cover 8,000 miles of Mexican dirt in hopes of finding out-of-the-way locations—with fish, and escaping with captured memories.

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.
