CHALK – Bedrock of Fly Fishing
The Test, The Itchen, Broadlands, Mottisfont, Halford, Skues and Sawyer are all names associated with the chalkstreams of England and amongst the most noteworthy in the world of fly fishing. CHALK is a feature length film about the past present and future of the chalkstreams of England and how their very existence shaped the sport of fly fishing. We meet the people who continue to fish and care for these storied rivers, while learning about the techniques that Halford, Skues and Sawyer invented. In addition to visiting the famous rivers and beats, we also travel to some lesser-known rivers. CHALK is a thoughtful examination of why the chalkstreams of England are probably the most important rivers in the history and development of fly fishing. From the geology that created the rivers and their abundant plant and animal life - including the legendary mayfly hatch - to the characters past, present and future who make these rivers unique, this is the definitive chalkstream fly fishing film. The film celebrates the rivers while also drawing attention to the threats and challenges facing these fragile environments. CHALK was narrated by actor and keen fly angler, James Murray and features some of the most recognisable names and faces in the UK fly fishing world, including Marina Gibson, Alex Jardine, Steve Cullen, Glen Pointon and Charles Rangeley Wilson, as well as anglers from all over the world. The expert voices and thoughtful voiceover complement the stunning cinematography, combining to tell the story of these precious waterways that have shaped a sport. CHALK was created by Fishing TV, independent filmmakers aka Chalkstream Fly, and fly fishing writer Simon Cooper. Members of the international fly fishing community helped to fund the production, setting CHALK apart from other films about the sport. A must-watch for all fly fishers the world over.

Avington Trout Fishery in Hampshire, UK, is renowned amongst fly anglers as the home of giant trout. Situated near the world-famous chalk stream, the River Itchen, the fishery was founded in the 1960s by former NASA scientist, Sam Holland, who had a unique vision to create a fishery full of large trout. The three lakes and carrier stream he built benefit from being chalk stream fed, and the water clarity in the lakes is therefore incredible. Fishing there successfully requires a stealthy approach, seeking out and stalking the leviathan trout that reside there. Nearly 50 years old, the fishery is a mature and beautiful haven for wildlife and a special place to spend a day fishing. Over the years, Avington has been fished by thousands of anglers and has been THE venue for fly anglers to try and potentially catch a UK record trout. Four years in the making, this amazing film charts the story of Avington Trout Fishery and shows off Avington in all its glory. Stunning underwater photography, some fantastic fishing action and of course some very big fish make this a must watch! To watch just login or register
As soon as you start watching the Fishing Cabin, you know that you're in for a different kind of fishing series. Presented by twin brothers, Asmundur and Gunnar Helgason, aka Asi and Gunni, the series follows them around the angling mecca that is Iceland and experiencing the best fishing the country has to offer. This largely involves fly fishing of course which is something that the pair are quite at home with, but there's a couple of sea fishing episodes too where the pair are quite obviously a little out of their depth but eager to learn. The main Icelandic fish species are all represented here including Atlantic Salmon, Brown Trout, Arctic Char, Cod and Saithe. You won't find too many in depth tips and tactics or tuition in this series, its much more about the love of fishing that these larger than life brothers have and the obvious enjoyment and fun they have in fishing together. The scenery, as you'd expect from anything in Iceland is breathtaking and there's plenty to enjoy from a fishing point of view too, but most of all just watching these two fishing together is more than enough to keep anyone entertained.
