    Our addiction to mountains and rivers has always had us looking north to Alaska, where big fish and mountains existed on a level we had only experienced in our dreams. As the winter of 2012 continued to disappoint in the lower 48, it was obvious that Alaska was being buried in snow. It seemed like the time was right, that maybe after 10 years of "practice" in Utah, we were ready for our journey north. We hit the road in March, putting everything we had into our first and for all we knew, our last adventure to Alaska, with two things on our mind, steelhead and spines. We joined forces with three of our friends from Utah, for a ski-plane assisted camping expedition in the heart of south eastern Alaska's backcountry. Over 50 miles by wing from the nearest road, our pilot dropped the 5 of us off on a big lonely glacier encircled by jagged mountains, and in the spirit of adventure, wished us good luck. We would need it. From that point on, the feeling of being completely alone in a wild and unknown land for the first time in our lives penetrated every cell in our bodies. Only one person in our group had ever been to Alaska, Chris Coulter. On day 8 when he suddenly left to work in Haines as a heli guide, the feeling of isolation crept deeper into our minds, and it had never felt so good. We chose to do this trip without any guides, plans, itineraries, or rules simply because we wanted to have our own experience. We wanted it to be raw, unknown, and we wanted it to be an adventure. Of course the style we chose made things much more difficult for us than they could have been, but the feeling of accomplishment was immense. We found glorious spines to ride, and stumbled upon one of the best runs of wild Steelhead in the world. Returning home safely from our first journey to Alaska signified a successful mission, along with the wonderful new memories from the greatest riding and fishing experiences of our lives. www.facebook.com/provobros www.ianprovo.com www.neilprovo.com Big thanks to Outdoor Research, Orvis, Backcountry.com, Voile, and Smith Optics music: "Elephant" - Tame Impala "Golden" - Tired Eyes Music "Bicycle Bicycle" - Early B "Distant Time" - Tired Eyes Music "Such a Sky" - Tired Eyes Music "Shining Sun Riddim" - Riga / Hemp Higher Prod.

      A fly-fishing journey to the Bolivian Amazon. We wanted to experience the rawness of the jungle in the richest ecosystem on earth, to have a primordial connection with nature that for us, is best achieved through exploration with a fly rod. Our Tsimané guides brought us into their jungle, back in time to a lost world of primitive living, giving us the opportunity to catch a Golden Dorado, one of the most possessed fish that swims. The Amazon wilderness holds many mysteries, but we found out for ourselves that the real treasures of the jungle live beneath the canopy, and swim through its pristine rivers. From the lowland tropics to the high altitudes of the Cordillera, our fly-fishing trip became more of a lesson in the immense diversity of Bolivia's landscapes and people. We invested everything we had, but came home feeling rich with new knowledge and experiences that are now priceless. If you're interested in an expedition style fly-fishing trip to the headwaters of the Bolivian Amazon, you must contact our friends Patrick Taendler and Federico Marancenbaum from Santa Cruz. They shared with us their passion and enthusiasm for Golden Dorado, and there is no way in hell we could have done it without them! www.facebook.com/anglingfrontiers Caño Negro - Green Forest Lodge www.bolivianadventures.com/ shot on a Canon 5D Mark III and a GoPro in August, 2013 produced, filmed, directed, edited by: Ian Provo and Neil Provo www.ianprovo.com www.neilprovo.com http://www.orvis.com | http://www.smithoptics.com | http://www.goalzero.com | www.backcountry.com | www.armadaskis.com | www.outdoorresearch.com Music credits: "The Throw" Jagwar Ma, "Little Flute Chant" Lee Scratch Perry, "Java" Augustus Pablo, "Hang Down Your Head, Tom Dooley Your Tie's Caught In Your Zipper" Incredible Bongo Band, "El Forastero" Savia Andina

          "During the winter of 2011, my brother Neil and I were presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were to spend two months embedded in the heart of the Kootenays at the legendary Retallack Lodge. The mission was to shred pow with our good friend Tanner, who was on his comeback, and to help film Retallack:The Movie for Inspired Media Concepts. I took the role of the dedicated time lapse junkie, while Neil was a true on slope camera master. This video is a showcase of our skills behind the camera, as well as a few of our favorite long lens shots from Retallack:The Movie. Time lapses make way for deep powder mining, and a trip into the heart of the "silvery slocan" to see how silver miners conquered the mountains a century ago. Mining for powder in the Selkirk mountains is serious business, and we found out just how serious it can get. We hope you enjoy our short film, and perhaps absorb just a sliver of the energy that is Retallack Lodge in beautiful British Columbia." ian provo http://www.ianprovo.com/ http://www.neilprovo.com/ http://www.inspiredmedia.tv/ http://www.retallack.com/ music: "Time is the Enemy" Quantic "Cripple Creek" Stringbean "Sitting on top of the world" Sam Chatman "Sitting on top of the world" Grateful Dead Intro graphic: Main title directed by Kilian Amandola and Yoann Ponti Photographer Almira Mederic

                      I haven’t shot or edited video in over 5 years so this was a bit of an experiment. I think it turned out ok. It was also the first time I was shooting video on a dSLR, the Canon 1dmk4, so it was a pretty serious learning experience. This was shot at the Red Bull Cold Rush at Retallack for Stoke Lab which is about 3 weeks from going live still. Consider this a teaser of what’s to come over there @ stokelab.com.
