Classic Video: “Expedition Taimen”


Editor’s Note: The amount of fly-fishing video being created across all platforms means that it comes at us fast. It’s impossible to see it all, so from time to time, we like to bring back favorites that you may have missed. If you’re not sure you want to commit to a 24-minute video, the trailer may convince you.

Six years ago today, we posted the first photos to come out of an arduous journey to Eastern Russia by Vaidas Uselis and Nerijus Rupciauskas—collectively known as Black Fly Eyes. The next year, they released this amazing film about fly-fishing for taimen, which they shot on the remote waters of an unnamed region, and I think you’ll agree that it has “epic” written all over it. From the incredible landscape, to the monstrous fish, to the killer drone footage, this has all the hallmarks of a fly-fishing classic. Make sure you watch in HD at full-screen.
