Last week we were joined by the film crew filming the new WFN Network show 'IGFA Saltwater Adventures'. Presenter Bill Boyce was in fine Californian form with special guest angler Tim Simpson, Editor of BlueWater Magazine fame providing useful insights to the show's viewers.
First good fish on camera was a nice Yellowfin Tuna around 100lbs. Bill was using some of the new 4 piece travel rods from Fox International. I was initially sceptical about a travel rod that fits into a pencil case but the quality of these rods is exceptional and quite remarkably they performed as good as any one piece gamefishing rod I have ever seen. In fact Bill told me they had recently fought a 700lb black marlin for over 4 hours on 50lb before eventually wearing through the leader boatside.
The IGFA Saltwater Adventure series of shows will begin broadcasting on the 1st July on the World Fishing Network (WFN)
