An obsessed fly fisherman is asked what his parents think of him wasting his whole life away.He states matter of factly that they’re jealous.
The film “Eastern Rises” documents five “freakishly obsessed” fly fishermen reveling in the “mind blowing utopia” of Kamchatka in eastern Russia.Never mind the “four weeks of relentless facial assaults by swarms of giant Siberian mosquitoes."
They refer to Kamchatka as what Alaska was 100 years ago, at least in terms of what matters – fly fishing.The facts are that this peninsula, larger in area than California, houses only about 400 thousand people and more than half of them live in the regional capital. Not only is Petropavlovsk the second largest city in the world not accessible by car, there’s only about 300 miles of roads in all of Kamchatka.

These boys (What else could you call these men?) arrive in their playground by decommissioned cold-war helicopter.
There is an inclination for the non-obsessed to weigh the thrill of fly fishing against, say,scaling a 2000-foot vertical wall or snowboarding a 60 percent slope or kayaking 120-foot waterfalls.“Eastern Rises” delivers the passion and adventure of these guys.It delivers the beauty and freshness of this wilderness experience.It even delivers the thrill of fly fishing.
