The Fish of My Dreams
Mahseer, the name given to a number of different carp species native to the Indian subcontinent and southern Asia. But these are no ordinary carp. Known to British anglers in the Raj as Indian Salmon, they’re an important game and food fish across the region. In The Fish of My Dreams, British angler Stu Walker heads into the Indian Himalayas, close to the boarder with Nepal, to the snow-fed Kali and Sarju Rivers to try to catch the fish he’s been dreaming of for ten years - a Himalayan Golden Mahseer. This is not fishing for the faint hearted: four hour treks and flycamps, not to mention the lurking danger of hungry leopards which prowl the riverbank after dark. But will he catch that fish he’s been dreaming about for so long?

Remote reefs. Tropical fish. Crashing in a hammock. Wild boat rides. Lucha libre masks. Eight- to twelve-pound Bonefish. Sound like something you want in on? Welcome to Scorpion Reef. In November 2012, a group of anglers embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime voyage to one of the most remote reef systems in the Gulf of Mexico. Five atolls, known collectively as Alacranes Reef, are located 120 km due north of Progreso. The reef complex is 27 km (17 miles) long and 20 km (13 miles) wide with a total area of some 245 square km (153 square miles). Alacrán is an emergent platform-type reef that forms part of a group known as the Campeche Bank Reefs, so named because they are located along the outer shelf of the Campeche Bank. It is the largest reef in the entire southern gulf, as well as the most northerly in location. The reef has five vegetated islands associated with it, Isla Desterrada, Desertora, Pérez, Chica and Pájaros. There are no ferries or any sort regularly scheduled transportation to this reef. It has been said that the trip is not for the weak of heart. There are no installations for receiving people, so visitors MUST take their own water, food, tents and any other supplies. Once there, interlopers have to be careful to avoid injury all costs, as there are no doctors, hospitals or support and it takes many long hours to reach the mainland. The logistic issues and risks laid aside, bonefish are present. Boy, are they present. And hungry. Six men – WorldCast Anglers President Mike Dawes, Orvis CEO Perk Perkins, and guides Ryan Buccola, Bear Holeman, Jose Briceno and Alejandro “Sandflea” Vega joined RA Beattie on the trip into the badlands of the gulf. The motely crew proved more than up to the task, though adventures were had that changed each man for a lifetime.

In this premiere film, brothers Nick and Jonathan Boulton document their yearly adventure fly fishing trip, this time returning to their homeland of South Africa to fish for Grunter and Leerfish on the Breede River. Being their first meeting for many months, there’s plenty of brotherly competition to catch up on, and the Breede is the perfect place. Where the river meets the Indian Ocean at the Western Cape of South Africa, warm, brackish water creates a diversity of life, the perfect hunting ground not just for fish, but for sharks, whales and dolphins. Spotted Grunter are a smart fish, difficult to catch at the best of times. Despite careful wading and imitative shrimp patters, the Grunter prove illusive, so Nick and Jonathan try for another local prize, the Leerfish. As the sport picks up, Nick feels a heavier pull on the end of his line and finally gets a chance at the prize they travelled all this way for.

In Pursuit of Carpiness 2
They said they'd never do it again, but Carp angling maestro's Mark Pitchers and Harry Charrington are back with an epic sequel to the smash hit, 'In the the Pursuit of Carpiness'. With the entire Carp fishing globe at their disposal, the first port of call for this road trip is Norway, which may seem a very unexpected destination but they find themselves on a stunning 30 acre lake in Westland, full of hope and raring to go. Things start off slow and although Harry just saves them a blank with a small fish, they decide to change venues to somewhere a little more forgiving. They head down the road to a stunning lake that they later dub 'the Redmire of Norway' as its home to some of the biggest fish in the country and as dawn breaks the next day, Mark lands his first Norweigan Carp, and its a cracker. As they settle down for dinner that evening, Harry also gets into the action as line starts ripping from his reel and lands another stunnning 20lb plus Mirror Carp. As the weather brightens they decide to take a break from this lake and get an invite to try a Carp pond in a local Zoo of all things, but Harry isn't best pleased as they arrive as he realises that Mark has 'customised' his rod with an electric saw. With Norway, done and dusted, the boys head to another less travelled Carp destination, Kazakhstan. After a quick shopping trip with local guide, Max they head to their first lake and set up in the near 40 degree heat. But before long, a storm hits and things are not off to a great start but as the storm eases and with the rods out, the boys are treated to some amazing Kazakhstan hospitality with drinks flowing and a feast fit for carping kings. With a blank staring them in the face, as well a hangover, Mark decides to walk the banks and sees some fish in another area of the lake and Harry takes quick advantage, landing a nice Grass Carp. Next up is Germany, and after the boys land some urban Carp outside their hotel, they hit the road and meet up with their local guide who has a series of great venues lined up. Germany certainly doesn't disappoint and they both land some huge Carp but the trip ends in disappointment as Mark loses a goliath fish in the last hour. Back home, he just can't forget about the loss so the trip continues with a return trip to Germany including quick stop off in Belgium to meet one of Mark's carp fishing heroes. If you liked the first film then you're going to love In the Pursuit of Carpiness 2.

In 2012, the Scorpion Reef expedition took the fly fishing world by storm. A group of close friends – anglers from a variety of backgrounds and locales, pooled their talents for an exploratory trip to a remote atoll in the Gulf of Mexico. Scorpion Reef would be a hard trip to beat. In planning the next great adventure, the crew wanted to take crew member Alejandro “Sandflea” Vega Cruz, a Mexican from Isla Holbox, out of his element and show him something life changing. The result was an expedition into the heart of the Alaskan bush. The crew revisited an unknown and largely untouched river system – explored by RA Beattie and Alaska guide Mark Rutherford almost a decade earlier. Their intention? To target sportfish primarily with topwater lures. What started off as a plan to expose Sandflea to the Great White North and enjoy a bit of camaraderie on new waters morphed into an adventure of epic proportions.
