About the Show

Since the beginning of time, man has gathered in places with access to the water. And in each of these locations, a local style has evolved that works in sync with the present conditions and types of fish that inhabit that water. This is the purest definition of “local knowledge” and is treasured by all who have worked hard to possess it.
