Ur­ban Banx and Swe­den

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Carl & Alex -

Carl – Isn’t it typ­i­cal that the best fish­ing con­di­tions so far this year have co­in­cided with the end of the river sea­son and my job be­com­ing ex­tremely busy. One of the many things I’ve been up to re­cently at Nash was head­ing out to film a park lakes Ur­ban Banx spe­cial with Alan Blair. Un­like the other Ur­ban Banx films I have worked on, this one is go­ing to be more in­struc­tional and ad­vice based. Many peo­ple have asked Alan about his tac­tics for fish­ing park lakes so that’s what we set out to do in this pro­duc­tion. I can’t give too much away about where we fished or what was caught, but it was an ac­tion-packed ses­sion! The film will be com­ing to NashTV soon (as soon as I have re­turned from a sneaky trip to Swe­den and ac­tu­ally got back to the edit­ing). Talk­ing of Swe­den, Alex and I have been plan­ning a trip to go and fish with a guy called To­bias Ek­vall. As I write this all our gear is packed and cam­era bat­ter­ies are charged ready for a solid week of film­ing. To­bias is a great an­gler with a stack of huge perch and pike cap­tures to his name. We have been speak­ing to him for months about the trip and lis­tened to his sto­ries of huge perch (over 4lb) and crazy days where catch­ing 30 or more pike on lures is av­er­age! To say we are ex­cited is an un­der­state­ment. Tonight I have a huge stack of edit­ing to get through, how­ever once that’s done all the mem­ory cards are be­ing wiped, lenses cleaned, cam­eras charged and then we are off. Off to try and break a PB. I can’t wait.

Mon­ster perch await us in Swe­den. We hope!

In Swe­den, it is nor­mal to catch 30 pike in a day!

The next Ur­ban Banx film will be in­struc­tional
