Andy's take: "As far as I can tell, this is one of the best overall DVD's on fly fishing that I have EVER seen. Most fall short either in the story, the narrative, filming or editing - this one delivers on all fronts! A solid story about "mouse infestation years in New Zealand and the impact on the trout fishing", INCREDIBLE cinematography, beautiful settings and top notch anglers, enough "eats" caught on film to qualify as fish porn and a professionalism that is rarely seen in our industry. Who are these guys and when is their next project!?!"

The incredible story of a once in a lifetime event.

Set amongst the spectacular scenery of southern New Zealand, a most strange and bizarre tale unfolds. The stuff of folklore, "Once in a Blue Moon" unravels the mystery of an event that occurs briefly once a decade. This strange and unreal journey takes us into some of the most remote and beautiful parts of New Zealand as we follow one anglers quest to document and unravel a childhood mystery and catch the fish of a lifetime.

In an unpredictable chain of events a mass flowering of the ancient New Zealand Beech forest leads to an excess of seed production. Mice and rodents take advantage of this abundance and numbers reach plague proportions. Incredible footage follows these rodents as they embark on a strange migration, attempting to swim across the expanse of New Zealand's rivers and lakes. There they fall prey to the largest predators in the lake - monster Brown trout. Gorging themselves on swimming mice, these fish become extremely aggressive and grow to epic proportions. For a fly fishing Angler, this is the stuff dreams are made of.

This bizarre phenomenon has remained a mystery...until now...

Shot in beautiful high definition Once in a Blue Moon reveals this bizarre story. Stunning cinematography, never before seen underwater footage, fantastic fly fishing and amazing trout behavior will take you deep into the tale of the fabulous and mysterious "Mouse Year"

If you are a serious fly angler and appreciate expert casting, this film is an absolute must.
