Great mullet video

I spent this evening drinking coffee and watching DVDs with some friends

I meet with a bunch of friends once a week to share flies and lies - and drink coffee and eat Danish.

This evening we watched a few DVDs. Some of them were really not good. The DVD player had a 32x fast forward function, which brought us quickly through some pretty boring DVDs on fishing salmon. Not much to find there...

One of the reasons that these salmon-DVDs seemed so slow and boring was that we had just watched a Danish DVD on mullet fishing. The DVD is made by a long time friend of mine, Brian Kjaer, who has done an excellent job. Really excellent.
He used to be a part of the coffee and Danish gang, but he hasn't been visiting for quite some time, mainly because he moved away from Copenhagen.

Brian has always been a very skilled and enthusiastic angler, and he was amongst the first ones in Denmark to get real success with the elusive mullet. This DVD demonstrates that he still has the grip - and then some.

The DVD is one long drive through a great type of fishing with lots of action, lots of tips and lots of sheer fun in fishing. It is not a top-of-the-line professional production, but the joy and enthusiasm more than makes up for that. After having watched this DVD I cannot wait to get out hunting mullet again.

This year was my best mullet year ever: I hooked - and lost - four fish. Brian hooks about 20-30 fish in this DVD alone and gets more than I care to count to hand. He also manages to show different fishing methods, flies and a bunch of tips.

The DVD is in Danish and of course mostly interesting to Danish viewers, but the production is a school book example on how to let energy drive a video way beyond many high-end productions.

See more about this DVD (in Danish) on the homepage of Flywater Production where you can also see a sample Windows Media video or one in Quicktime format.
