  1. Does everyone in Scandinavia cary around one of those wooden spoon/cup/bowl things? I'm always jealous when I see people dip them in a mountain stream. Few and far between places to do that here in the states. Wonderful fishing and Cheers!

  2. Truly wonderful 👌…you have found and are enjoying a piece of "nature's heartbeat" that all true outdoorsman seek. Thank you for sharing, again.

  3. Brilliant scarlet, blue halo spots all off set by white-tipped fins. Char are really beautiful fish. Way too pretty to kill. God meant for man to eat bushes anyway.

  4. Det blir ju inte bättre! Fantastisk fisk, landskap & film 😍 Tack så mycket för att ni tar er tiden!! 🎣

  5. Oioioioioioioioioi…neeneeneeneeneeneee…😁 What a great fishing !!! So beautifull Fishes ,Just Nature can do such Art. All the best from Germany 🤠

  6. I love the pace of your films, it reflects the emotions of our sport so perfectly. The colours and beauty of those char is utterly incredible and to see the backing peel off the reel for so long is something I wouldn't have expected. Another gem of a film, so thanks for all the hours of editing and hard work!

  7. Beautiful video. As a fly fisherman myself I have a philosophical question with no snark or sarcasm. How far away from the fisherman can someone else net the fish and still consider it landed by the fisherman who hooked it? I see this in Alaska, Montana, Labrador, etc and I cant help but wonder. No hate or anything (to each his own) but, I mean, can you cast from shore, hook the fish, and send someone out in a boat to net it? Or have someone 50 yards down stream wade out and scoop it up? I know they are really big fish and netting them as quickly as possible ensures their continued health but where is the line?

  8. What a great bit of fishing and friendship, i am from Scotland and currently work in Saudi Arabia, how i do miss my fly fishing, this video brought a smile to my face.

  9. Is it true that the further away a fish is, the bigger it is? Arctic char, Brook Trout, and Lake trout are all so similar, it's obvious all three are remnants of the last glaciation, and not 'trout' at all. All three are char.

  10. "OY, OY, OY, OY!… " I love this guy. 👌🏼 And the fish… wow… they are a dream… 😍😍😍 Congratulations, men. You're killing it! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

  11. This is my favourite youtube channel. No free cool insta lumberjack gansta hippsters but real guys from real life. Peaceful and nice videos with good fish, relaxing and joy of fishing . Thanks.

  12. Good evening Men of Men!! What a Stunning Performance from Both Anglers! Such beautiful fish, and two experienced Anglers!! You both deserved The Whisky. Next time, put some of the Whisky in your lovely coffee. Especially first thing at dawn. Hearty Congratulations too you both. Many thanks and Kind regards Colyn.

  13. Beautiful. Loved it. I presume this was Iceland? Expert fishing and particularly nice casting. Professional filming and editing. Captured the fun and comradeship of fishing so well.

  14. Absolutely stunning scenery and Arctic Char. One day I'd love to fish for these magnificent creatures. That's my kind of adventure. Amazing video 🙂👌❤🎣

  15. was wondering where this was before reading the thumbnail then I heard the fe faun 🙂

  16. I screen shotted the fly you showed. Great looking pattern. Could you give me the recipe for it, I’d love to try it here in Ireland.
    Cheers
    Dave

  17. another beautiful video. Here's a little while that I look at your videos and this one has finished convincing me to go buy my first fly cane .

  18. Amazing video, I'm looking forward for the summer to fish again røye fisk on Magerøya Island/Nordkapp where I'm living….🐟🐟🐟

  19. Hi thanks for your reply. It’s the detached body one with what looks like a rubbery leg or two on it.
    Cheers
    Dave

  20. Spectacular, outstanding, wow! Laphroaig 10 to boot. Language barrier no way I understood every word been there so many times.

  21. Beautiful video! Jjust to be picky though, when you are referring to a scotch, it's spelled whisky, without the "e."

  22. Hi. I’m always looking forward to your videos. Thank you friends. Health and success. 🥂👍

  23. I watch fishing videos a LOT!! This was one of the best and most beautiful YT fishing vids I've ever seen. Great job! Thank you.

  24. Watching you guys fish is surreal, it’s almost like it’s a religious experience for you. Another brilliant video.

  25. Reminded me very much of fishing the Falklands for sea trout. Especially around Bluff Cove and Frying Pan areas.

  26. ive never seen an alpine lake with that much room to cast. what the hell is up with that.
    we plant these in lakes up in the rocky mountains here in my home state of idaho in america. i've never found any. i'm pretty sure the lakes i looked in were way too remote.
    we also have a few grayling. which ive managed to find a few times. cool video. reminds me of home, except for the part where you can actually just walk clear around a lake like that.

  27. A dream of a fishing day. The solitude of the landscape, the red coloured fish fighting hard and working into the backing líne…what a beautiful video…a pleasant relaxing music and the soft light of a cloudy windless day… a very quiet zen experience… a nice cup of freshly made coffee drunk by the fire on a fishing talk with a friend..the beautiful flowers…that moose running uphill…a dream, definitely, for us Nature lovers.

  28. What do you use for drink? Coffee, water, etc. Is it characteristic from Sweeden? Amazing videos! Miguel from Argentina
