Streetfishing - Urban Imitation - Full length flyfishing movie

t.z. | Friday, 9 October 2015

There has been few discussions lately about fishing close to home. Those small unknown spots. Why travel far when the good can be so close. On would not think about „urban flyfishing“ when thinking about Norway, the land of wilderness, fjords and salmon fishing. This stereotype is to be revised. There is a quite a group of people enjoying to cast a fly downtown.

Some of them quite young actually, which have found out for themselves that flyfishing can be very cool. Very interesting stuff I think. Just for pleasure they document their endeavours with go-pro cameras and all modern paraphernalia on can think of.

The latest one is about fishing in Oslo downtown and suburbs. Kristian Leerand, young creative photographer, film director and foremost flyfisher - or urban flyfisher to be more correct has now published his second film - has spent the last 8 month creating an almost 50 minutes long feature. Nice photography, a very professional approach and an interesting topic. It couldn't be better. I can only recommend watching it - even though it is in Norwegian - the pictures and scenes speak for themselves.
