Extreme Fishing With Robson Green 2010 – Episode 7: Cuba

With knitting in hand, Tangodiver watched the latest episode of Extreme Fishing with Robson Green.  This time he was in Cuba.

Tangodiver is getting very bored with Robson’s one-dimensional antics on this program.  What a drama queen.  Doesn’t he realise that the people who take him out fishing think he is worse than a little girl?  The screaming and swearing!  Whatever happened to fishing being a zen sport?  One goes out into nature, quietly, to enjoy the beauty and serenity of one’s surroundings – to get in touch with nature and oneself. Fishing isn’t about catching a fish every time.  It is about the experience.  A fish caught on the line is a bonus, especially if you are going to release it back into the wild!

Tangodiver thought it was highly amusing that Robson was made to be quiet to catch certain fish.  The other fishermen probably just told him that so they wouldn’t have to listen to him.  It was one of the best parts of the programme.

This episode was not very interesting, although Cuba looks like a great holiday destination, and fortunately no endangered species was harmed.  In fact, many fish were returned to the sea.  Too bad they didn’t do that in last week’s episode when they caught the shark.

Tangodiver wants all of you to be warned about next week’s episode when they will be in Japan.  The Japanese are not renowned for fish conservation, so there are bound to be some scenes that will be quite disturbing, if the trailer is anything to go by.  Tangodiver has already been traumatized by seeing Robson holding a puffer fish all puffed up out of the water.  The Japanese consider these a delicacy, even though they are highly toxic.  Crazy, itsn’t it!

You’ve been warned!
