Welcome to the Guests' Clips Page!

A huge thanks to the anglers who have forwarded their own video clips - much appreciated! Guests' Clips have been divided into three sections: Pan Fish, Sport Fish, Carp and Others, as well as a dedicated Links section back to the contributors own sites. In each case, some useful commentary, aimed at the bank angler wishing to understand their quarry better, is included. Links to a variety of sites that also feature underwater footage of fish behavior are included at the end of this section. If you have recorded some underwater footage and would like to share it via this page, please feel free to drop Pat an e-mail detailing your footage (which may also be forwarded as an attachment).

Each video clip is included as a hyperlink. Your computer's movie player should open and play the clip when its respective picture is clicked. A good tip is to have your player in 'skin' (reduced size) mode  - then you can read the description and see the video all at once. The clip's format and size is disclosed in the description pane.

If you are having problems with the larger clip(s) not playing, right click on the picture and select 'Save Target As..' Your computer will then download the clip to your hard drive, which will allow for smoother playback. The windows media player is recommended to view the clips. It may be downloaded free of charge here:
