Fly Fishing in the Anthropocene

A film by Peter Christensen & Rolf Nylinder
The Ozernaya River winds through a remote corner of Kamchatka in Far East Russia. In one of the most intact ecosystems left in the Northern Pacific, rainbow trout eat mice for breakfast and salmon run in the hundreds of thousands. This bounty attracts two kinds of people: those who want to protect, and those who want to exploit. Salmon poaching is big business on Kamchatka, and once the salmon are gone, entire ecosystems will collapse.
Run time: 20 min.
