New Movie - We are Junkies!

At the moment we are hard at work editing our upcoming feature film “We Are Junkies! (Salmon). Maybe you like a glimpse of what is to come, so please have a look at the trailer.

In this film we try to portray what salmon fishing is all about from a Salmon Junky perspective. Follow us from early June when one of the world’s largest Atlantic salmon runs enters the Varzuga River under a dancing midnight sun until it ends almost four months later at the astonishing and unique Umba River. This is the time for fulfilling one of the dedicated salmon anglers wildest dreams – landing a really big mythical Osenka salmon. A must on the CV for every hard-core salmon angler.

The Kola Peninsula, in the North West corner of mighty Russia, is one of the last strongholds for Atlantic salmon fishing in the world not affected by salmon farming and over fishing. Few places have such a deep spellbinding effect on Salmon anglers from all over the world. Fishing this part of Russia, the angler gets the feeling that the clock has been turned back many hundreds of years to a time when the rivers were brimming with Salmon; to a time when there was no need for re-stocking or desperate measures to save the future.

Danish photographer Columbus Leth and Salmon Junkies decided to portrait the soul of a Salmon Junkie fishing along two of the most famous rivers on Kola, the Umba and the Varzuga, which contain one of the largest populations of Atlantic salmon on the earth today.

Please enjoy our short trailer and be ready for the full feature in early spring 2014. Enjoy right here:

Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you all!

Wow

Thank you very much for posting this, what an amazing place! That is truly Heaven on earth!! I have yet to catch an Atlantic, not that many close to my home here in New Jersey. I have seen videos before on the Ponoi and they have left me speechless as did this video as well! You are a very lucky man to be able to visit and experience & fish such pure rivers and catch those beautiful fish. Some day if im lucky enough, ill keep playing the lottery! Thx again for posting happy holidays!!

Nice video!!! I'm with HellerHighwater, I love the BC and Oregon vids. I'm originally from Oregon and watching your two videos on your steelhead trip there makes me miss that place every day. Keep up the awesome work.

Sweet!

Nice footage! That tail at 4:30 looked huge...and the very last airbreather. You hooked me.

Some years ago I bought a Sage 8124-3, it was a "B" rod and on the blank was written "For Umba". I thought it meant something like "for grandpa."

Hi Klickrolf - Yeah the Sage 8124-3 was some kind of cult rod back in the old days at Umba - A great rod indeed

Once again a Merry Christmas to all
