Extreme Fishing with Robson Green

RENOWNED BRITISH actor and passionate fisherman Robson Green experiences the adventure of a lifetime in the thrilling Extreme Fishing With Robson Green.

Acorn Media

Robson Green (Reckless, Wire in the Blood), a keen fishing enthusiast for many years, has always thought you couldn’t beat a nice quiet day’s fishing, until he went on an extreme adventure – a globetrotting fish finding mission to some of the greatest fishing destinations in the world.

Extreme Fishing with Robson GreenOriginally screened on Channel Five, the hugely popular, exciting four part series follows Robson on his mission to discover the weird, the wonderful and the forbidden of the fishing world. This fascinating adventure will be released as a two disc DVD set on 6 April 2009, courtesy of Acorn Media to coincide with the TV transmission of series two on Channel Five.

His travels take him to Costa Rica, living with the Maleka tribe as they hunt the elusive piranha-like mahaca, to Louisiana in search of barracuda; on to South Africa to face the hammerhead shark; hunting giant catfish on the Ebro River and attempting to catch a 500Ib marlin in the Azores.

On boats, in canoes, up river and underwater, Robson chases some of the most elusive and terrifying fish on the planet. He learns new tricks, hears old stories, and eats pretty much everything he catches – like a true hunter-gatherer.

Robson doesn’t fish just for fun – he fishes to the extreme.

Born Survivor: Bear Grylls Sahara (DVD)

Born Survivor: Bear Grylls Sahara (DVD)

‘Men don’t come much tougher’
The Sun

‘Bear is the first sex symbol of the post apocalyptic age’
The Times

Bear Grylls is an adventurer, record breaker and real life action hero. Experience his latest adventure from the comfort of your armchair as he braves the blistering heat and deadly sand storms of the Sahara Desert in Born Survivor – Sahara.

Bear Grylls has a built a huge following with his Born Survivor TV Series, originally screened on Discovery Channel, numerous television appearances and best-selling book Facing Up. Born Survivor – Sahara will be available courtesy of Demand DVD
on 28 January 2008.

No stranger to extremes, Grylls become the youngest Briton to climb Everest earning a place in the Guinness Book Of Records, prior to this he was the youngest Briton to climb Mount Ama Dablam in the Himalayaas, a peak once described by Sir Edmund
Hillary as “unclimbable”. And he’s one of the few people to successfully complete the gruelling training for the French Foreign Legion; he also spent three years with the SAS and is a black belt in Karate.

This time, Grylls is heading to The Sahara, one of the most hostile places on earth. This
two-hour feature length special sees Grylls trying to survive in unbearable conditions,
from the shocking heat, the lethal sand storms to the lack of food and water. Resorting
to his skills and unbelievable survival techniques, he demonstrates amazing instinct
and learns new skills from the tribes he meets along the way. Lunching on lizards and
scorpions and drinking water from a camel’s ruman (stomach compartment) adds to the
excitement, and Grylls also demonstrates what to do if caught in deadly quick sand.
The tension will keep viewers on the edge of their seat.

The Primeval Pike DVD

The Primeval Pike - courtesy of Beckmann Visual Publishing


Description:
This fascinating fish has been around for over 60 million years. The PRIMEVAL PIKE gives us an historical perspective and looks at pike biology and behaviour. Dedicated pike anglers show us their most successful baiting methods and we are treated to the joy of watching them land pike after pike of all sizes.

Highly Acclaimed angler and presenter Andy Nicholson joins forces with the British Museum and fellow expert anglers Ray Baker, Dr Bruno Broughton, Martyn Page, Vic "the rig" Bellars and Max Cottis to raise the profile of this ancient species and to make a compelling case for treating the pike with care and respect.

Chapters:
- History of the Pike - with Awyne Wheeler of the British Museum
- Fly Fishing For Pike - with Ray Baker
- Pike Biology & Behaviour - with Dr Bruno Broughton
- Dead Baiting - with Vic Bellars & Martyn Page
- Lure, Plug & Spinning baiting - with Andy Nicholson
- Mackerel as Bait - with Max Cottis

Running Time: approximately 105 mins

Review:
Right from the start I have to say that this is a cracking DVD full of interesting and useful information about the pike itself, it's history and habits as well as how best to catch one.

Before the DVD even gets to any fishing action we see Andy talking to Awyne Wheeler a pike expert at the British museum who provides loads of fascinating information about the history of this pre-historic fish. Another of the sections I found particularly enlightening was the section dealing with pike biology and behaviour. Bruno Broughton brings his vast experience to play when detailing the pikes feeding and behavioural patterns, vital information for any angler who wished to target this elusive predator.

By now my appetite was wetted for some actual fishing and I wasn't disappointed here either. Great care is taken to detail the methods used by the various participants and the following chapters of the DVD outline fly fishing for pike, dead baiting, lure, plug and spinning and using mackerel as bait for pike. The DVD covers nearly all the methods that can be used for pike fishing and I certainly picked up some really useful tips which will no doubt stand me in good stead this winter.

Throughout the whole DVD it is clear that those taking part are real enthusiats for the art of pike fishing and proper care of the fish they caught was something that was highlighted throughout.

There are some cracking underwater shots of the Pike splattered throughout this DVD and they really bring the whole "pike in their natural habitat" issue to life and make the whole DVD that much more enjoyable.

I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone who wants to find out a bit more about tactics for catching pike and anyone who is interested in the history of the fish we catch in this country. It is a well thought out publication that manages to create a fine balance between the history of the pike and the methods for catching them.

Score:

Where to buy The Primeval Pike:
The Primeval Pike is available to puchase from Beckmann Visual Publishing in either DVD or VHS video format and is priced at £16.99 for the DVD or £17.99 for the VHS.

Fly Fishing in Iceland DVD

Fly Fishing in Iceland - courtesy of Beckmann Visual Publishing


Description:
This ambitious and exciting film about fly fishing in Iceland follows Icelandic local fishermen as they pursue their catch - Arctic Salmon, Sea Trout and Arctic Char.

Fly Fishing In Iceland DVDThis is a unique fishing film allowing you to see the different fishing culture of Iceland first hand. Iceland is beautiful and a fish-rich, enchanting setting for fishermen keen to share with you their expertise and experiences. Though the northern summers are short, the fish are plentiful, offering up many unforgettable fights between man and his quarry.

The producer Eggert Skulason is the editor of the premier Icelandic fishing magazine called "Veidimadurinn" (The Fishermam). He has been fishing in Iceland for over three decades and has all the skills needed to point out the best places to fish and explain the tactics that work. Eggert is also a veteran producer having produced over 40 fishing films.

Five very different rivers are fished in this film, providing great variety. Among them is the River Hofsa, visited by Prince Charles for many years and a small but beautiful river in an isolated fjord that gets invaded by arctic Char every summer. The film contains some stunning unerwater footage including a big Char chasing and eventually catching the fly.

The DVD also includes maps of locations fished in the programme

Running Time: approximately 67 mins

Review:
Right from the start, I should say that I am neither a fly fishermen, neither have I ever been to Iceland. After watching this video though, I am seriously considering doing both!!

This is not fly fishing as most of us probably know it. Rather than well stocked commercial trout fisheries, this is fishing at its best, on wild natural rivers that tumble their way through some dramatic and stunning scenery.

The DVD manages to create just the right balance between technical fishing information about line, flies & techniques, footage of fish being played and caught and just unashamed shots of the wondeful Icelandic scenery. Underwater footage of fish in the natural habitat is almost obligatory in fishing videos these days and Fly Fishing in Iceland is no exception. It brings the whole experiece so much more to life.

I really enjoyed Fly Fishing In Iceland and would highly recommend it. Sitting at home in London on a miserable January afternoon, it has certainly made me want to get on my bike and experience other countries and the fishing they offer. If UK Fisherman doesn't get updated for while cos I've gone travelling, you can blame this film !!

Cheers for now ... Paul@UK Fisherman
