Tapam Downunder - The Swift Fly Fishing Company - Epic Fly Rods

We're stoked to announce that Tapam is coming down-under!

We love great fly fishing films, and the next best thing to making them is being associated with great films produced by colleagues.  I can't think of a film we'd rather rub shoulders with than Tapam.

The incredible Tarpon Adventure produced by Daniel Göz & Jan Bach Kristensen will be distributed in New Zealand and Australia by On the Fly Productions

In case you've been under a rock over the past few weeks here's the lowdown on what must be the most exciting fly fishing adventure filmed.

There are still places to be found... Two guys venture far off the beaten track in their quest for large tarpon. Armed with fly rods and float tubes their journey takes the viewer into some of the most beautiful and remote parts of Central America - a place where giant tarpon prowl and the locals fish and hunt from dugout canoes. The adventure unfolds as the catch of a lifetime is documented with incredible footage of exhilarating close-up fights with giant tarpon, breathtaking scenery and wildlife as well as interaction with the locals. 

"Tapâm - a flyfishing journey" received the prestigious Drake Film Award "Best Fishing" in 2010. 

We're very proud to be representing Daniel & Jan downunder - if you want to know how to get your hands on a copy of Tapam in New Zealand or Australia just drop us a line.



Here's the trailer - hold your breath
