Video Pro Tips: Fly-Fishing for Carp Down Under

It seems like most modern fishing videos are edited to show only the moments when everything goes right, so it’s refreshing to find one that paints a more complete picture of both victories and defeats. In this video from The Full Scale, Australian angler Lubin Pfieffer takes us along for a day of carp fishing on the lower Murray river. Eventually he does land a few whoppers, but he also makes some uncensored mistakes along the way–including breaking off a fish, tangling slack line on the trolling motor, missing shots, and spooking fish–all of which create great learning opportunities that are usually removed from the final version. The unique high camera angle provides a fantastic view of the action, making it feel like you’re standing on the poling platform and watching all the ups and downs happen in real time.
