Carol and the waves

Carol is 82. She could well be my grandmother, and she could well be hanging in one of these places you’re supposed to go when you’re old. Instead of that she’s living the Life. Rides her bike to the beach. She gets naked, dives into the waves. Soak up sun through every pore of her old, wrinkled, hanging, yet beautiful skin. And she’s a living protest against all kind of silly notions about what we’re supposed to do and be. She’s a lady, she’s the sister of Maude. I think I’m in love.

Rodtrip in Iceland

Our mates from Rodtrip went to Iceland to see if you can catch a trout over there. Answer is yes. And the scenery is amazing. Well done boys!

TIF #53

90 Miles, the film

Now you can enjoy it! 9O Miles from World Angling is now available on vimeo on vod. Isn’t it the best time for all of you who haven’t had the chance to go to Cuba to see what it is really like to go fishing on this magical island, I’m pretty sure soon you’ll all be able to go. In the meantime enjoy that great film and if you want to go and fish the same locations, for your information, it has been shot in my favorite place in Cuba, Las Salinas de San Lazaro, not only the fishing is incredible but the guides arae awesome. You get there through Planet Fly Fishing, send them an email, they speak english! And if you want to read a full report on San Lazaro, it’s in this issue of Revive! But just to remind you that more than a film on fly fishing it is a film on how to protect what we have so our children would still be able to enjoy what we had.

Rainy days

When the heatwave has slammed us as if we were caught between an anvil an a hammer for the whole summer, we make the happy dance when the first drops are falling on us. Delightfull shower, promises of hatches. North Scandinavia with Die Sonntagsangler aka the sunday fisherman.

One day North

When you leave Salt Lake City, head full of fish big as a leg, dreams of camp fires and frienship, you know you’re going to be out there for ten days adn that all the chances are that you’re going to have a hell of  time! But life is never as you think it is.. so instead of ten days, Joey Manship, Will Clausen and Greg Houska went fishing for a day and got the best out of it.

Kola salmons

We’re a little bit fans of Daniela Misteli here. A couple of days ago she was mousing, now she’s back with a nice short video on a trip she made to the Kola Peninsula, fishing for Atlantic Salmon. It’s a little raw, it’s homemade, but there’s no fat left in the cut of the film, and the soundtrack is good. And they look like they’ve so much fun! We really wish we were there.

Drag her

There’s something refreshing about this video, where Emma Brown drags a friend to some inlet spot where she wants to fish. It’s not very often that we see an all female crew, and feel the drive, the urge to fish that’s strong enough to bend the arm of innocent bystanders and coax them into participating in our fishing madness. The image quality is not great, but these girls seem to have tons of fun, and catch some nice cutthroats.
