Two childhood friends, with a lifelong dream of exploring the wilderness of the South Island of New Zealand, turn their fantasy into reality and experience the adventure of a lifetime.

Garden and Gun says The Waters of Greenstone is “like an Endless Summer of fly fishing”, and Tom Bie from Drake Magazine says, “You guys have captured the spirit and essence of a true adventure fly fishing trip”.

Taylor Kirkpatrick and Hardwick Caldwell have been friends since pre-school, fishing the local waters in south east Tennessee together for as long as they can remember. Ever since they picked up their first fly rod at age 9, they dreamed of one day going to an exotic land together to fly fish for their favorite species, brown trout. As the two friends grew older and guiding started to take away the fun of their favorite sport, they combined all the money they had saved over the years, bought a camera and plane tickets, and set off on their childhood dream.

Backpacking into the most remote places of New Zealand, the two friends explore one of the last true wilderness areas that is home to the world’s most elusive trout and attempt to climb the tallest mountain in New Zealand outside the Mt. Cook Region (Mt. Aspiring). Most productions that occur in New Zealand use fly fishing guides and helicopters to help overcome the difficult environment/technical fishing, however, Taylor and Hardwick refuse any outside guidance, film everything by themselves and accept the challenges in a purist fashion.

Tramping through the wilds of New Zealand was no easy task, as the two friends were continuously tested physically and mentally, but the omnipresent vision of hooking into a 10+lb brown trout was enough to overcome any obstacles thrown in their path.
