Alex Broad – S%!*s & Giggles
I wasn’t sure whether or not to post this video,
However after throwing it up on vimeo it was very quickly reblogged on a French fishing blog, and received over 150 hits in its first day and some very positive votes!
We were likened to Beavis and Butthead with all the giggling and praised with the down to earth style of fishing.
So here it is:
I have to add that after targeting wary brownies in clear water all season that this was a breath of fresh air, I haven’t had this much fun on a fly rod in a long time. Perch are voracious feeders and will predate on just about anything, I tried to get them to eat a popper, they didn’t hesitate. This has opened a new world of fly fishing up for me, popping for perch in “workups”. Give it a hoon one day, you might be surprised just how much fun it is.
