The Backcountry Dream

  • Australia

Produced by: Johan Kok
Filmmaker: Johan Kok

Inspired by magazine articles and tales from guide friends about catching lots of big trout in crystal clear water with big dry flies, Johan has always dreamed of a helicopter trip into the backcountry during the famed cicada season. After years of planning, his first trip was only average. The fish proved tough to catch, possibly due to pressure resulting from easy access. Now, armed with intel about a remote spot promising fishing like the old stories, he sets off with his friend Pawel for a dream five-day adventure. As they fly in, Johan wonders if the famed cicada fishing still exists or if it was now just stories.
