2022 IF4™ Official Selections

"Out West"
In an authentic fish bum adventure bass film, Todd Moen captures a creative old-west journey to fly fish eastern Oregon’s high desert streams.  Brian O’Keefe returns on camera to chase smallmouth bass, after nearly 13 years since the original “Alpine Bass” made its debut on Catch Magazine.  Now, with drought and warmer water affecting much of the western landscape, and in an effort to lessen the impact of fly fishing for trout in the dry season, Moen aims for bass - a warm water gamefish.  With both aerials and subsurface shots, this film captures a rustic and low budget adventure only an angler like O’Keefe can pull off.  Enjoy the action and get inspired by this sure-to-be classic film.

"A Fly-fishing Refugee"
Pressured out of Poland as a dissident in the early 1980s, Mariusz Wroblewski set out for freer territory, with his family, a yearning for wild rivers, and not much else. Four decades later, he’s become a conservationist and advocate for wild rivers – and discovered the true reason rivers figure so prominently in his life. Filmmaker: Brian Film
"4 Weeks of Daylight"
The Kola Reserve has recently gathered a cadre of professional fly-fishing pioneers on a mission to determine whether rumors of the existence of two phenomenal, lost and completely private Atlantic Salmon fisheries on the northern coast of the Kola Peninsula in Russia were true. Adding to the intrigue and speculation is the fact that both rivers flow north into the Barents Sea at a point only slightly southeast of the trophy-laden Yokanga and to the northwest of the prolific Ponoi. They are dead-center in the heart of a region famous for trophy-sized Atlantic salmon, numbers of grilse, and large fall run Atlantics. The rivers are completely private and have been designated catch-and-release, fly fishing only fisheries that will remain shielded from poaching, commercial harvest, and exploitation. Join the exploration team to the Kola Peninsula and get a glimpse of the secret of their craft and a first inside look of the Lumbovka and Kachkovka rivers. Filmmaker: Fly Fishing Nation
