Well I was watching a fishing show on this morning. The host was fly fishing in Canada for big brookies. Well he got one in the 20 plus range. But man do I hate to see people that are suppose to know better do what he did. After he played the fish out. Instead of either walking that fish to shore and landing it, or bring the end of the line to with in a few inches of the tip. He keeps out about 10 to 15 feet of line plus the leader. then grabs the rod half way between the grip and the furrel. Then puchs his arms stright back and stretches his other arm forward and at the same time steps out with one leg as far as he could and just barelly pulled the fish over the end of the net. The hole time standing in water up to his crouh and running perty hard. If he had tried to landed a saltwater fish like say a albie, that way. You could have said by by to the tip of the rod. He was also lucky he didn't take a fall right their and then. I don't know who decides how they pick some of these hosts for some of these shows. But some one should teach them how to do things right. Before they are allowed to go on the air. What has always suprised me, is that lefty never had a tv show for us fly fisherman. I love filp palits show , but it never seems to be on that long before it is replaced with some other show for the rest of the year.
