The South Island Backcountry New Zealand has vast tracts of some of the most intact, undisturbed natural areas left on our planet—these last truly wild places deliver beauty and isolation in spades but it is the allure of giant trout in crystal clear water that draws the anglers from around the globe to these treasured landscapes.
The film explores a number of backcountry fisheries with anglers who exude a profound connection to the wilderness. The cast of the film is as extensive and varied as the landscapes explored. In the end it is dedicated, inspired people will ensure that the spirit of the backcountry will thrive, preserving a world that we are proud to hand over to those who come after us.
