Heya guys from Down Under! Some of you may have seen the occasional video report i put up on here from Western Australia, but ive now just completed my first full length feature movie, well semi-full length at just under 40 minutes! Above the 26th Parallel is based around the Western Angler Wilderness Island Yak Safari of 2011, and filmed 1300km north of WA's capital Perth in the Exmouth Gulf. It has footage from what would be the best days yakking i've ever had, with some cracking Queenies and Golden Trevally, as well as some ripper fish caught by Matt Checksfield during his week at the Island. There is also, shock horror, some great footage from the boat, and even some hot landbased action from the island itself. I've got some great australian bands onboard who have contributed their music in John Butler Trio and aussie hip hoppers Bliss n Eso, so huge thanks to those guys! Also massive thanks to Western Angler Magazine for making the trip a reality, and of course Jim Alstom at Wilderness Island, for providing an amazing week of fishing!!
Hopefully this will give you guys a bit of an insight into the beauty of the WA coastline, and the area Above the 26th Parallel where it starts to get remote, and the fishing hots up!
The video below is the Teaser for the full length vid, which will be available for purchase from mid August. This DVD Release is fully self funded, and not a money making enterprise!!
So please, enjoy the teaser, let it wet the appetite for the full movie, ive been keeping this hush hush for long enough!!!
