Fishing on Film
Roanoke Times outdoor columnist Richard Formato recently took part in a taping of The Outdoor Channel's fly fishing show "familiar Waters" at his farm in Floyd County, Virginia. The show is hosted by former NFL player Mike Pawlawski who believes that fishing shows shouldn't edit out the anglers missing fish and should actually provide some information that will help the viewer catch fish for themselves.
"Come to think of it, you don’t see many fishing shows showing anything except self-professed experts effortlessly hooking big trout on what appears to be their first cast."
Richard was even able to catch fish with the pressure of the camera's unforgiving eye looking over his shoulder.
