    I just saw the commercial for this next show. Monday at 10pm the host will be fly-fishing for Taimen. Just thought it was cool that they would include fly-fishing...
    Thats all I had to say!

    I watched that one on demand. The biologist can't cast to save his life! I lol'd.

    The re-enactment is kinda cheesy (on the other episodes) but it's a good way to waste time.

    I watched it on demand as well. It's pretty funny watching the biologist smacking the water in front and behind.....kinda surprising when he actually catches one! The guide they used catches one that's like four feet if I remember right. Pretty crazy to think of a trout growing six feet long. I also remember something about the trout living in one area of water for a couple years also.

    SHigSpeed, ya don't have to look very far to find someone worse off than yourself.
    But your right, when I saw that guy casting I said "Now there is a guy that needs a lesson"
    The director needs a lesson also.

    I'm always right.

    Except when I'm wrong, which is most of the time.

    Ha, i hear you are right about that last one Itchy. Better to have tried it and been wrong than never have tried it and been a chicken $h!t.

    yeah it happened, some decent casts were made too. I have and still do have a few slaps and tailing loops....it always happens. Unfortunately for him/them, it was caught on camera. I have seen great casters throw some duds. What was more amazing to me was the terrain, never in thousand guesses would I have said Mongolia or anywhere near when I saw the scenery, it actually reminded me of some waters I have patrolled in the US before. Entertaining show, I thought. I do have this question, how many shows have I watched when the big target is not caught until the last day of the trip/journey. I want to watch a show where they get something on the first or second day and spend the next 7 to 10 days in misery with no more results....always seems to be the last day :hmmm: entertainment/hollywoodize :rolleyes:

    I enjoyed the program, those are some big trout, beautiful country.
    Was kinda nice to see some fly fishing show that was not elitist.
    Just an average Joe trying to throw a 6" squirrel tail with a 10 wt single hand rod.
