Backcountry - South Island

The sequel film to the highly acclaimed Backcountry – North Island. The South Island has vast tracts of some of the most intact, undisturbed natural areas left on our planet—these last truly wild places deliver beauty and isolation in spades but it is the allure of giant trout in crystal clear water that draws anglers from around the globe to this treasured land.

Backcountry - North Island Official Trailer

The backcountry of New Zealand holds a special place in the heart of all Kiwis. “Going bush” is a national past time, and Kiwi fly fishers like nothing better than the sun on their backpack, the cold touch of a mountain stream and the opportunity to sight fishing to giant trout in pristine settings.

The film follows six fly fishermen, from different places and different walks of life, as they each explore a treasured corner of the North Island. This land of active volcanoes, rugged gorges and dense forests provides an epic backdrop for some of the best trout fishing on the planet. As each story weaves into the fabric of the film it becomes evident that, despite their differences, the characters are all bound together by their passion for the backcountry.

Backcountry – North Island is Gin-Clear Media's 7th fly fishing feature film.

For humankind, water is the source of eternal wonder, so too the creatures that dwell within this mysterious realm. The lure of the unknown is what drives fly fishers to explore and to seek out the largest fish of a species, not for the trophy but for the challenge. LEVIATHAN documents epic fly fishing battles with these modern-day aquatic monsters in a global tour-de-force.

Predator - new teaser

A new teaser for Predator. Annual Drake Fly Fishing Video Awards 2012 "Best Movie". Produced by Gin-Clear Media. Narrated by Greg French.


Gin-Clear Media's PREDATOR is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed HATCH. Fly fishermen have always lusted after big fish, those large predators that dominate the rivers, lakes and oceans in which they preside. PREDATOR explores the globe for the largest and most powerful fish that can be taken with a fly rod. These large predators employ all sorts of techniques to maximise their chance of catching prey. Some, like the queenfish, use pure speed to outrun and crush their prey in the surface film. Pike lay in ambush, ready to explode on their prey in the chalkstreams of England. Others, like the mighty barramundi of Australia's North, use brute power to get a feed. Regardless of the species, a film about fishing for the world's greatest predators is guaranteed to be a visual extravaganza.
