Another fly fishing show with Robson Green

Post by Muskie » Wed Jul 21 2021 17:01

How does this guy pull it off? Latest programme is in Iceland.

Robson has to be one of the worst fly fishers out there. He can't cast. He breaks off his fish too often as he does not know how to play them correctly. His watercraft is shocking and yet he gets his own fishing shows to some great destinations?

Absolutely ridiculous.

Couldn't agree more. Makes you wonder who watches those shows? I saw a couple and that was enough for me, utter drivel. But then I am pretty sure these shows aren't targeting anglers as their audience. Therein lies where the ratings must be coming from? Beats me how he keeps getting more shows commissioned :shrug:

How?
Probably because he or his agent has an interest in the film company that produces the series. Similar to publishing your own book.

Some of his other stuff wasn't so bad if you kept the sound switched off.

To be honest, I’m watching it.
He’s s***e but his mate is half decent and it’s nice to see good fish caught in beautiful places.
I ignore all the “fishing saved my life” b******s.

It was a lot better than the celebrity fishing in Scotland on Channel 5.
