Only the River Knows: A Fly Fishing Film

Posted on Posted in Uncategorised, Video

Only the River Knows takes place on the legendary Lethe River in 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.

The entire journal of Lars Lenth has been reconstructed into a feature film.  This is the trailer.
