Jan Bach Kristensen
Jan has entered into filmmaking partnering with German photographer Daniel Göz. In 2010 they filmed an extraordinary movie dedicated to the pursuit of tarpon in a very remote and pristine location in Central America. Highlights of the movie are some crazy action footage of giant tarpon being hooked and landed from float tubes as well as camp life and wildlife in the rain forest and interaction with indigenous people in beautiful surroundings.
Jan holds a Ph.D. in biotechnology and when not out chasing fish or on a photo shoot he works with second generation biofuels as a research scientist.

Daniel has been traveling of the beaten path for nearly two decades. He traveled most of the Americas, East Africa and Asia.
His low impact travel approach lead to the discovery of unseen forms of flyfishing. In 2007 he discovered that fishing from float tube in very remote Central America was very successful. He was able to hook, fight and release giant tarpon fishing from the float tube. His photo work on this has received wide respect within the flyfishing world.
Daniel teamed up with Danish photographer Jan Bach Kristensen to create the now released film “tapam - a flyfishing journey”
