THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

In 2016 the crew at MOTIVFISHING set out on an exploratory fly fishing mission to a tiny Pacific island in the middle of nowhere and were the first foreigners to land on a plane in this remote area. In cooperation with the indifly foundation and Costa Sunglasses their hope is to work with the local people to protect this tiny island from being overrun by foreign entities who might otherwise exploit this fishery for their own self interest.

AT THE END OF A RAINBOW

The Ozernaya River winds serpentine-like through a remote corner of Kamchatka in Far East Russia. In one of the most intact eco-systems left in the Northern Pacific, rainbow trout eat mice for breakfast, and the salmon run in the hundreds of thousands. This bounty attracts two kinds of people; those who want to protect, and those who want to exploit. Rampant salmon poaching is big business on Kamchatka, and once the salmon are gone, entire eco-systems collapse.

YAKUTIA

The first trip took him to two rivers, the Besuki and Olanjok, in Yakutia province. It was a successful mission but Ilya and his mates knew they had just scratched the surface. 11 years later Ilya amassed a crew of a dozen anglers and explorers with the goal of surveying further into the Yakutia province than ever before.
