The guys from AEG, who brought you Trout Bum Diaries: Patagonia and Trout Bum Diaries II: Kiwi Camo, are back. The team heads to Mongolia in search of the elusive and endangered taimen. They are opening new doors to the world of adventure angling, doors that now demand a trip half-way around the world. For two months the guys travel to five rivers that potentially no other fisherman has floated down in search of a mysterious fish. Their travels in this fly fishing adventure movie take them into inner Mongolia by horse, camel, Russian military vans, and hiking boot in search of the taimen, also known to Mongolians as River Wolf. The taimen is the world's largest salmonid—the family of fish that includes salmon and trout. The species can live for more than 50 years, but they grow slowly, not reaching maturity until seven to nine years of age. They are not known to be exceptionally migratory, but tend to stay in a small section of river for their entire lives. This has put the future of the species at risk due to years of over-harvest and lack of management.

The Angling Exploration Group recently announced the first installment of "The Trout Bum Diaries", a revolutionary style fly fishing video currently in production. This video is the result of five months of sleeping in the dirt, driving from 11,998 kilometers from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, river after river and lake after lake along the Andes, the spine of South America. This video is slated for release this Fall. What's revolutionary about this video? The world of fly fishing is filled with videos and television shows on everything from casting skills to what outfitter to fish with in Montana. There is very little in the industry that is "pure entertainment", and our aim is to fill this void. Our films are laid out in a modified surf/snowboard video style, fast action with commentary between music sequences. They are shot "trout bum style", and are filled with shots of real life trout bums sleeping in the dirt, exploring new waters, hiking streams, floating rivers, and of course, catching fish! You won't find any instructional commentary here, and we guard all of our film locations by using imaginary names. This is pure fly fishing entertainment. What you will find is lots of high-action, fish catching, exploring, scenery, and life-style shots. You will be able to join us on our fly fishing adventures through the jungles mountains, spring creeks, sprawlin rivers, and deserts of this unique part of South America, all in the comfort of your home in from of your home entertainment system.
