Anyone who has seen the 1999 video release CARPWISE 1&2 will know the efforts to which we have gone in producing a high quality film. CARPWISE 3 & 4 was released in November 2000 and early sales and feedback have indicated that it is as good, if not better, than its' predecessor.
Volume 3 features well known UK anglers Ian Russell, Derek Ritchie, Lee Jackson, Bob Newman and Jules Webb. There is highly technical rig and bait talk, advice on how to approach a carp water for the first time; but very importantly we see what can be done, whilst fishing, to learn about a water and it's fish movements.
Most of Volume 4 is filmed in Belgium with Frank Warwick and 2 top Belgian anglers, Theo Pustjens and Johnny Blisak. The session looks in detail at pre-baiting, lake mapping, tackle requirements for big waters; the use of boats for placing hookbaits, echo-sounding and playing fish. Essentially, you get to see how these experienced anglers fish in the demanding conditions where big fish are at stake.
The video set is once again professionally filmed by Len Gurd (Original Video Company), with helpful, detailed on-screen diagrams and fish action sequences. All together an excellent package, rich in entertainment and technical pieces alike.
