Boredom. We know you’re feeling it, because we are too. With this in mind, we have put together a compilation of films that incorporate packrafts and couldn’t think of a better time to share them with you. Enjoy!
**Only Available Until April 25, 2020**
2019 | 55 minutes | Wildlife, Adventure, Documentary
Watch three women follow the 85-mile-long migration path of a scruffy, pregnant mule deer doe and learn to see the world differently in the process. They take on this adventure by packrafting, climbing and skiing their way along the migration path of this deer.
This film is presented by our friends at Artemis Sportswomen and the International Wildlife Film Festival (IWFF).
2017 | 10 minutes | Wildlife, Adventure, Alaska Fly Fishing Film
“Everything here is bigger, larger, harder and tougher than it looks. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or how great shape you are in, if you come here, you’ll contend with the Alaskan factor.” For this group of anglers, that’s exactly what the doctor ordered. The goal of this expedition was simple – to use packrafts as a tool to explore and fish an extremely remote and braided river system, much of which is not accessible with larger rafts. The simple and no frills nature of packrafting offers the ultimate in flexibility and mobility.
This trip was not a first descent on an unnamed river. It was not some epic of mankind’s quest through the uncharted. But, after going 100 river miles without seeing another human soul, it felt like it. To revel in the unknown is the greatest thrill for an angler. And when it’s all over, the fishing, the adventure, and the solitude all culminate into a shared experience with the company you keep.
