Oh my God!

This little edit follows Peter's streak of bad luck and not-so-pro fuck ups during a recent New Zealand trip with the Nylinder brothers.

Melancholic Dodding in New Zealand

This video is made of scraps from a trip in 2011/12 to New Zealand. I've felt so depressed over the winter that edits such as this are typical - no smiles, hardly any emotion, just an all-consuming self-pity. I ask myself that fundamental question of life: why am I not fly fishing? Meanwhile, the snow falls, the rivers are frozen and my bank account drained. It is at times like that edits such as this one come about - all mellow and moody. I forgot about this one until recently. Spring came, fishing had to be done and then, suddenly, I remembered. Which is a paradox, because now it is actually possible to fish, rather than just dream about it. Another paradox is that it takes longer to read this than to watch the video. I'll stop now. Enjoy!

Only the River Knows

Only the River Knows is a brand new, 80-minute fly fishing film shot in New Zealand, Australia, Norway and Sweden. The main part of the film takes place by the legendary Lethe River on New Zealand's wild and wondrous South Island. Back in 1988, one of the most iconic fly fishers of our time, Lars Lenth, spent three months exploring the fabled river and fishing for its abnormally large trout. At night, he would sit down in a remote cabin and write down his experiences in a journal. Nearly 25 years later, the young trout bum Rolf Nylinder looses his way in the wilderness near Lethe. By chance, he finds the long-lost journal, full of insights about the very soul of fly fishing. Along with Rolf on the trip is documentarist Peter Christensen, filming their mostly failing attempts to catch trout, and Rolf's ever-growing obsession of the journal. The entire journal of Lars Lenth has been reconstructed by an extensive and ambitious team of cinematographers and crew members. The young, sensitive and freedom-loving Lenth is played by Danish fly fishing ace and actor Mikkel Poppelhøj, who had to practise four hours daily for six months to be able to cast as well as the role necessitated. Only the River Knows has been produced by Peter Christensen and Rolf Nylinder from Kokkaffe Conglomerate on a very tight budget (called Mastercard). Early reviews have been very positive, and we hope many of you out there will enjoy the film, and share the wonders of fly fishing with us. Here are a few: "A Herculean effort", Ryan Peterson, Eastern Rises (we hope Ryan doesn't refer to the Disney character) "Just when I thought fly fishing films couldn't get any better, Peter and Rolf raised the bar, yet again!", Nick Pujic, Fly Max Films On our website you can find dealers or order the film directly through our webshop. Just click the link in the end of the film. Every dollars, dime and cent will go into making new film, and we feel blessed to have received so much support from the fly fishing world already. Enjoy and lots of love, Peter and Rolf Kokkaffe Conglomerate Read more in our article about the project
