Peter Corzilius, aka Peter Fisher, hails from Germany and we're very proud to have him as an Epic Ambassador. A talented filmmaker and story teller Peter has put together some beautiful fly fishing clips in the past.
His latest clip "The most basic rule of fishing" is both heartwarming and extremely relevant - take a few moments out of your busy day to enjoy it.
"Native fish are often indicator species whose health tells us much about the waters they live in. In this film we will look at the survival challenges these fish have or have had and the successes we're having in managing them, examining working solutions. Factors adversely affecting native fish around the world are often the same, such as over fishing, invasive species, habitat loss, etc"
" Find a feeding fish. Our first consideration is whether the trout are feeding - if at all. If they aren’t feeding, or at least watching for food, you may as well throw stones at them. It’s easy to mistake a non-feeding trout for one that is “refusing” your offerings, when in fact its just ignoring them, or asleep. When there is little food in the water column, trout often go into a semi-dormant state. A hatch of mayflies or drift of nymphs will wake them up in short order. "
You may have seen Steven's incredible images posted on Instagram and Facebook as @finripplemedia. Timed to perfection, his astounding images of leaping trout freeze time and clearly demonstrate to us that yes, trout do indeed track insects on the wing and take them in flight. Steven has been bending a couple of Epic fly rods...
Never had I anticipated the arrival of a new fly rod more, and I currently own two dozen premium rods and have had another few dozen move through my personal inventory over the years. The rod exceeded all expectations and in every way - action, tracking, dampening, aesthetics, components, workmanship, packaging.
For his latest movie-project Swiftfly fishing ambassador Peter Corzilius hiked out into the wilderness of Swedish Lappland searching for arctic char, a special species that lives in big and clear mountain lakes.

I had already fallen in love with this art by then. I wanted to be a flyfisher. I saved every single pocket money towards the kit. It took me more than one year to save 7000Yen($NZ92.00). I finally bought a Shakespeare Beginners set, which included a rod, reel, line, tapered leader and 5 dry flies and 5 streamers
