Film: Saltwater Fly Fishing in Australia

Fly fishing the Australian salt! A new film from Todd Moen and Catch Magazine takes on the coastal waters of Australia.

From Catch Magazine:

“‘Australia Coast to Coast’ is T-Motion theater’s longest and most in-depth fly fishing film to date, with a run time of more than 25 minutes. From Australia’s Great Barrier Reef on the east coast to the Ningaloo Reef on the west coast, the angler on camera and UK fly fishing virtuoso Alex Jardine pursues more than 8 species of fish in various breathtaking land and waterscapes Down Under.

From the Great Barrier Reef, Moen takes you along for red throat emperor and shark mackerel. From Australia’s eastern shoreline, experience barramundi and mackerel tuna. Then from the country’s northwestern bays and inlets, see golden trevally, cobia and the magnificent queenfish. With aerial shots above glistening coral reefs and gem-colored waters, this film will make you feel as though you’ve traveled the country on your own fly fishing adventure.

The biggest challenge in filming and editing this video for Moen was synthesizing the huge quantity of information, diverse locations and variety of fish species caught on the fly in Australia. In addition, the precious time and energy he spent in transit pre-covid and away from his family to tour the country makes this one of Moen’s sturdiest endeavors – both personally and professionally- in his career as a filmmaker. It’s also one of his proudest.

Thanks to the support from Dean Cooper at Tourism Australia, to Panasonic professional, and to the guides Luke Griffiths from Quest Angling Expeditions, Andrew Chorley from Hervey Bay Fly and Sportfishing, and Brett Wolf from Ningaloo Fly Fishing.”
