We are salmon junkies

The movie “we are Salmon Junkies” -HD 1080p from columbus leth on Vimeo.

The Atlantic salmon is known as the King of Fish. In the hierarchy of the river’s hidden world, it is top dog — swift and powerful, unpredictable and elusive, a sleek, stunning manifestation of nature’s grand design. Throughout the history of angling, for all who cast a fly, Salmo salar has been a shining prize. But for some, the salmon is more. For some, the Atlantic salmon is an object of obsession whose draw is so complete as to haunt every waking thought and fantasy. These most avid and passionate anglers are called “salmon junkies.”

We are Salmon Junkies is a mind-blowing, 60-minute ride into a world of Steffen Juhl, one of salmon angling’s most compelling characters and a bona fide salmon junkie. The film follows Juhl’s seasonal “lifecycle” and in so doing offers a fascinating look into an international subculture united in pursuit, protection and celebration of the iconic Atlantic salmon.
