FREAKS OF NATURE
Gin-Clear Media's Freaks of Nature is one of the features of the festival. It is a film about the giant rainbow trout of Patagonia’s fabled Jurassic Lake. This desolate and wind-swept lake is undoubtedly home to the largest trout on the planet, a place where ten pound fish are common and twenty pound plus trout are caught every week.

JUNGLE ANGLER
Deep in the Amazonian jungle tribes express a special admiration for some unique fish, usually the top predators in their habitats. Their belief systems frequently represent these special fish as deities. These sacred fish in turn become the same ones that anglers pursue with equal reverence.

TURNING POINTS NORTH
Ron stacked shelves in a grocery store for 17 years before becoming a bush pilot. Jeff started in a fly shop, working for $4.75 an hour and gradually shaped himself into one of the foremost angling authorities in the world. Both men converge in Alaska to describe how they went from the bottom run to "living the dream". Woven with these human stories is some of the best pike fishing footage ever captured.
