The Arctic Experience

Some stunning fly fishing for Arctic brown trout and salmon in these films, via Arctic Silver Innovation.

For what is possibly the very first time the launch of a new fly fishing brand has been made possible by popular demand and the two 'Arctic Experience' films, which have just been released and are available to view here on Flyfishing.co.uk, are a tribute to the goodwill and faith that fly fishermen across the world have invested in Arctic Silver Innovation.

The ‘Arctic Experience’ fly fishing films resulted from two recent trips to the Arctic Circle in northern Norway and feature lots of great Arctic atmosphere, beautiful and unspoilt scenery, some pristine brown trout and salmon – and not least two groups of enthusiastic fly fishermen from Norway, the UK, and Mongolia.

The fly fishermen on the trips are the centre of the story; not only were they part of testing the new and innovative Arctic Silver Free-Flex fly rods, providing invaluable feedback for the final production fine-tuning, but they also helped to launch the brand itself.

Via a crowd funding campaign last year these people – and numerous others like them – came together to help Arctic Silver launch its Free-Flex handle system and its range of high-tech fly rods. By joining the Arctic Experience trips, they helped fund the start up of a unique fly fishing concept based on innovative and functional industrial design and a passion for the magical moments in fly fishing.

You can view the two films below:

Fishing at midnight in low sun was an experience I'll remember a long time and the Norwegians were great too, they certainly love their fly fishing. It seemed half of Vadso got up to see the salmon run up the local rivers. I ended up on dry fly for browns in the crystal waters and was not disappointed. The new rods were not quite finished but from a performance perspective they worked well. I used a 5# 9' which happily gave distance and accuracy. I also took my Loop Streamflex 5# to compare, on which the tip snapped off on the 1st roll cast, so good job I had the Arctic Silver prototype there. (Its the 2nd time the Loop has lost its tip section, Loop replaced it no questions asked, it does get a lot of use._) The crowd funding Indiegogo website produced the start up cash for this enterprise and I expect a large number of new enterprises will be formed this way for invention type businesses. I bought into the enterprise out of curiosity for the invention, the crowd funding experience and a reason to go to the Arctic. It made my year.
