It looks like a pretty small clear river. If he knew how to use one he would have landed as fast or faster than with a DH. Sadly he didn't!Could someone please enlighten me, as to why James Murray was using
a single handed rod, as opposed to a D/H rod on that BIG FISH river at
the end of the program.
Did he not say you can fish there fairly cheap if you rod share ?And bragged he had fished in 130 countries all over the world ? and still just at the mid novice level ,
Great scenary locations at rivers and lochs . The loch fishing is on parr with the cost of salmon fishing £1k to £2k /day ? guides £500 + per day too .
I found it hard going, the bromance didn't work, Robsons flapping about despite being a very experienced angler, the whole 'Jim' story was very staged, his pregnant pauses were deliberate and rehearsed (didn't surprise me later that I found out that he was an actor), just crap.The whole programme was just a little odd. I’m just watching the 3rd one now.
From the lack of nets, to the constant repetition (about many things), to the drivel about ‘back to basics’ (with a bloody Hardy Cascapedia!) to the absolutely abysmal netting.
It was just bizarre and not half as enjoying as a TV show about 3 weeks in Iceland salmon fishing should be.
Thing is I really enjoyed Robson’s extreme fishing shows because he seemed both knowledgable and enthusiastic. He looked like a beginner in this.
