    For me it is a bit like food, a commercial stuffed with fish is like McDonalds, we all know it's not great but there is always a market for it, it is quick and easy and lets face it, we all feel like...

    Nice video, it looks like the fish went for the camera a few times too.

    I always enjoy underwater videos as the fish don't behave anything like what I expect them to.

    Re: Shorter rods

    Interesting, thanks for the feedback.

    May I ask why the longer rod for the river, casting distance or being able to extend past the bank and vegetation?

    Shorter rods

    I suspect I am in the minority here but does anybody use shorter rods?

    Re: More angler bashing

    On more than one occasion I've had the same fish more than once in a single session, clearly it didn't do the fish any harm if it was back feeding on the same bait, in the same spot within the hour.
