The salmon runs of Bristol Bay are by the numbers jaw dropping. Watching these fish flood the wild rivers in the region is simply mesmerizing. We made a salmon reel from years of filming in Bristol Bay. Enjoy and consider a donation to help stop the proposed Pebble Mine.
The road to extinction is paved with good intentions.
Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.

We were fortunate enough to spend another amazing week at Iliamna River Lodge for some fishing and filming. This time, the weather cooperated wonderfully, . . . and so did the fish! IRL is a fantastic lodge in a phenomenal location. Watch in HD – Comment, Share, Enjoy!
That's not a typo. It's "Rainbo" Camp. And, if you've been there, you know what a special place it is. It's an edge of the Earth fishery, less than a mile from the Bering Sea. The wildness of the landscape is only matched by the fierce salmon that enter the river each fishing season. It's an angler's dream, and you can only experience Rainbo Camp via Bristol Bay Lodge.

From glaciers to wildlife to enchanted forests, the Pacific Northwest is a truly amazing part of our planet. These are some of my favorite moments from my recent trip along the Alaskan coast with UnCruise in May 2017. Music: "Conrad" by Ben Howard, used with the permission of the artist.
For Leighan Falley, Alaska is more than home — it’s a calling. Leighan spent years as a ski guide and climber on the Alaskan range, focusing much of her energy on Denali. But after becoming a mother, she found herself unwilling to pursue guiding (and the dangers that come with it), instead taking to the skies as mountain pilot. Follow Leighan on the Alaskan adventures that enrich her life and legacy in Denali’s Raven.
We had the opportunity to spend a week with Talaheim Lodge in the summer of 2016. Everyday offered incredible sight fishing for trout, char, and silver salmon. Our last day we had the opportunity to throw poppers to voracious Dolly Varden Char and Rainbow Trout. As the saying goes, "Once You Pop, You Can't Stop"!
See what it's like to adventure in one of our planet's last great wildernesses - the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. A visit to the Alaskan Arctic is unlike any other - abundant wildlife, twenty-four hour sun, towering mountains, and a 14 million acre playground of solitude. Matt and Emily Thoft are Alaska bush pilots that spend every summer showing people this magnificent region of the world. Their lodge base and plane-access gives them ultimate freedom in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. But, it's their passion and sense of wonder in this place that is so inspiring.
