Chasing Monsters

Recently I commented on the Fish or Die TV series about a group of adventurers who travel the world fly fishing for exotic fish.  Highly enjoyable.

There's another one, too, with Cyril Chauquet and the the one I'm watching now is titled, "Wild Fish - Tension on the Line."  It's excellent.  I did a google to find his last name and found that he's apparently got several going.  "Chasing Monsters," "Last of the Giants," and probably more.  On NGCHD and also streaming.

He does basically the same thing - traveling the world seeking out strange and huge species and presents very well....and has a lot of fun doing it.  Nawww......I'm not envious.  Honest.  😎😎

    fish he flyfished for.He said,I don't fish around here,

    Definitely a hell of a lifestyle. I do remember watching the episode of his on goliath grouper fishing down in Boca Grande, and laughing at him using that comically huge spinning reel rather than conventional gear. Obviously done to play up how hard the fight was, and it got the job done eventually, but a bit funny to see. Still loved the show and episode.
    Paddle faster, I hear banjo music.

    I'm watching this show too...Cyril is a good friend. What you see on TV is what you get. He's a excellent fisherman, speaks 3 languages and really loves to fish. I've done several shows with him. But must say I like this format much better than his earlier shows. Definitely worth watching!...Pete
