Best of luck with the program,

as much as I agree with the rather do then watch idea, conditions dont always favor this, so having a show to watch would be fun, but most of the networks I have dont show any fly shows,, its all bassmaster this and that.. spanish fly comes on but its not a didicated fly fish show.

Everything written so far is so on the money about shows on today. To many plugs for sponsors and to many hosts that are to full of themselves. Be nice to see a show that traveled all over and used local fly fisherman to build a show around . Let these guys show us there area what they fish for and how they do it. I'd love to see some regular guy showing me how he catches hybrid stripers in Pennsylvania what flys he uses the things he looks for to find fish and so on. And the next show another guy catching white perch on Long Island. And then maybe someone catching sea trout in Florida. Mix it up and use guys that know there quarry and are not blowing smoke up my butt. Don't matter how many or how big make it real. Easiest way to make it real is honesty with no endorsements. Don't want to see the local rod manufacturers rep fishing. Something informative that will hold my interest for learning. No more self proclaimed legends.

I held back. If you knew what I knew you would not watch them if you did have dish TV. I'm not saying they are all as bad as the one I was on, or as bad as ..... uh most of them.

Just out of curiosity, I'd like to know which shows jrsuper16 is doing. If you don't mind telling me, jrsuper, send me a PM.

The host of the show I did was one of the "self proclaimed legend" crowd. He has ads in magazines, and blah blah blah. I'd call him a joke but it'd be an insult to true jokes.

I think there are good TV fishing shows out there, and some are not so good. Just like any slice of life, no show, host, destination, or fishing style will appeal to all. I saw three good shows just today, on three different channels, however one was a different episode than what was in the listings. milt.

I have to add something to make my point about what I'd like to view. After reading and see pics and comments on this forum I can honestly say that if there was a show with guys like Diver Dan , Swirlchaser , Hardyreels and several other members of this forum on it I would go out of my way to watch it. Read and view what they contribute Mr Producer and you will understand where I'm coming from .


Note : Dan I to was on a show with one of those self proclaimed legends and man was it tough to swallow all that hogwash! And better fisherman than him were kissing his rear. Amazing!


If I missed anyone's name sorry to many to list!

Actually it was the on screen listing ( directv) and the channels website listing that said the show would be about Marble trout in Slovenia and about the region post-war. We have a member here that lives just south of that area and one that just returned from a visit there and that has piqued my curiousity. I'll catch the episode sooner or later though. milt.

I don't see any fly fishing shows here with only three local channels but lately I've discovered "The New Fly Fisher" on utube and really liked the episodes I've watched; they cover the location, local methods, and gear, also showing the mistakes and the ones that got away.

If the New Fly Fisher is on a PBS station, then it's the same series I've seen. Best one out there. Brian Chan, Phil Rowley have excellent episodes. Mostly it's been on chirono fishing lakes, but they show their techniques, flies and how to tie them.
I know there's more episodes out there, but our local PBS stations are so fickle. You never know what will be carried over to the next season.

And if you want to know how NOT to do a fishing show, find some episodes of
"The Dimestore Fisherman". Damn dumbest fishing show ever produced.

Edit- it is the same show. If you pattern your's after TNFF, you'll have a good show.

I understand the expense of TV productions and the need for sponsors and adds. The best thing you can do is tastefully put in prime videography and fish porn. IMO, WFN's "Fly Nation" is the best for intertaining fly fishing. If I watch fly fishing on TV, I want to see places that I'll not likely go, hear little to no banter and see great shots of beautiful places and georgious fish. Fly Max films are truly top of the game.
