Greetings all

my name is gary and from london, a keen fisherman but not to good at it,
also an independant filmmaker and not to bad at that,thats where my passion is and all things in the natural world, so I decided to make the short film "fisheye "about the tale of a poacher,and the creatures in it.
I posted a link in the forum for members to watch if they wish. Ive been fortunate to travel a lot and fish in some great places, not yet fished in india yet, maybe one day.

Cheers.

Welcome Gary,

Hi Gary,

The Short Film was great, how did you manage those shots, the fox, the bird, the bullet, the pike, wow it was a great film.

Congratulations on that, you were nominated for that film right.

Welcome to IA, hopefully you can make one in India about people dynamiting our fish, that is shameful, we could probably make one and show it around.

Regards
Derek Dsouza

welcome to the forum, well done for the poaching movie. Keep it up, the less the poaching the more the legitimate fishing.

Hi there jude
A short movie, 3yrs in the making and plenty of hard work,it's good to see people like yourself watch it, because thats what it is all about, being a one man band I do it all myself,my fingers are raw trying to reach as many people as possible, via the internet so if you can spread it around, that would be cool.

many thanks

Gary

Hi dev
how are you doing, regarding the size and weight of the pike just under 6feet, long and about 20lbs when it was cooked we ate it a bit to earthy for me, but nothing goes to waste with me just like the american plains indians used to do along time ago.

cheers

Gary

Hi Gary.
Welcome to Indian Angler, I just joined up last week and also live in the UK.
Your short movie was beautifully filmed and you obviously have a great talent for this. I usually take home video footage of my foreign fishing trips and would love to be able to produce this sort of quality one day. This was also a very good pike so congratulations on catching it and I'm glad it was not wasted.

I thought I should let IA members know that killing pike, particularly large pike, in the UK is generally discouraged as I wouldn't want them to get the wrong idea. If this pike was about twenty pounds in weight this would equate to killing a fifty pound Cauvery mahseer which I am sure would be an unpopular thing to do for most members who fish for them. I note this entry on Youtube has already generated one negative comment regarding the pike killing.
A twenty pound pike would normally be between 38 and 44 inches long (depending on girth) and possibly aged between 8 and 15 years.

I don't think anyone would object to killing a small pike to eat but a fish of this size is a top end predator, a comparatively rare beast and one to be preserved. It has been scientifically proven that removal of large pike from a fishery results in a total upset in the natural balance of the population and a proliferation of small pike invariably results. These then run riot since their numbers and distribution are usually controlled by the larger pike which predate on them. The end result is increased biomass of pike and so increased predation on food fish such as roach and bream, etc. It is then difficult for a natural balance to be regained.
By the way I understand small pike are better tasting as well!

The Pike Anglers Club of Great Britain was set up a number of years ago to help promote pike conservation, safe handling and improve fishing methods etc and has local regions throughout the country. If you are interested in learning more about this subject you should have a look at their website and perhaps go along to a local meeting. You can find this with a Google search.
In fact if you are ever in the West Country during the colder months I would be happy to take you out pike fishing and give you a few tips if I can as you say you are not too good an angler.

Regards
Andy

Hi Andy
Nice to know you care, I am the same about all wildlife, the pike in question
came from billigsgate market which I bought in the early hours one morning, and threre was know way I was just going to discard it, adding to the fact it cost a few quid, when we finished the sequence we cooked and ate it and invited a few friends and eat out in the woods the rest was brought back for the neighbours cats, nothing was wasted,it tasted a bit earthy for my liking but I tucked in. as for the comments on youtube its amazing what people percieve to be real in a totaly fabricated situation, but thats life I suppose, anyway thanks for your comments.

Cheers and thanks for your fishing invite.

Gary

I'm glad to hear the pike came from the fish market but I do wonder where Billingsgate got it.
I'm afraid there have been a few genuine pike abuse videos posted on Youtube which have provoked quite a response from the pike angling fraternity in the past although I haven't seen them myself. This may help explain the one derogatory comment which it has received and any others that may appear in the future. Unfortunately there is still a fair bit of pike killing going on.

The offer of a trip still stands regardless.

Tight lines!

Andy
