On the Fly Productions?

Jeanie Ackley is an accomplished filmmaker and adventurer. She has travelled the world extensively and is a recognised researcher, producer, underwater camera-woman, photographer and dive instructor. All the images on this site are original, and the good ones were probably taken by Jeanie. Jeanie is our production manager and line producer - and if she’s really lucky she gets to drive the underwater rig.

Her husband Carl (Bumcast) McNeil is, well, a trout bum – or at least he would be given half a chance.

Carl is an FFF Certified Master Casting Instructor and obsessed fly fisher of both fresh and saltwater. He stands in the hard-core camp of trout behaviorists; “they’re only a bag of chemicals” which, he would have you believe, only makes fly fishing even more interesting, difficult and mystifying. His fly fishing and fly casting material has been published in the likes of FlyLife, Catch Magazine, Midcurrent and This is Fly. Carl writes, directs, produces and edits just about everything On the Fly does

Earl Kingi does lots of very clever things with cameras. He is a world renowned documentary and sports cameraman and has had something do do with just about every aspect of television and commercial production.  His experience, patience  and steady hand with the camera are a big part of what makes our pictures so special. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Earl is a keen fisho’ and A1 cocktail maker.
