  1. Can’t wait to get out fishing again, going to appreciate it so much more now. I’ve never tried fly fishing, but those flats would be amazing.

  2. maaan the other intro was spot on maan it had more great visuals and show a great perpective.. but none the less great episode.. keep on going forward.. cheers from PH

  3. Hey crew, we will be releasing these 'FISHING THE WILD FLASHBACKS' every now and again. They are mainly bits and pieces from our previous adventures. We will release new 'FISHING THE WILD Northern Territory' episodes every fortnight. Cheers, and thanks for the subs! Morgs and Simmo

  4. That takes some doing putting a spear through a fish from that distance with the challenge of accounting for the water refraction!
    If you do manage to get a hook into a Milk Fish, its a wild ride…

  5. Must have been very special for you guys to go spear fishing with these really good hunters and then to learn the cooking method and finally share a meal. What dreams are made of. Really enjoyed that video and am looking forward to the next one.

  6. That's one of my favourite clips because you get to see the lovely people and characters from Garrthalala. The excitement of the little girl and other kids and the skill, athleticism and mischief of the young men. Morgs wasn't the first guy to fall for that practical joke of being told about eating the eye.

  7. Still kicking goals with vids guys. Unlike that eating of the eyeball, bro i felt your inner heave from here🤢🤢.
    Great stuff.

  8. This sort of footage is great. Very unique, very special and very entertaining. I might even go back and put your DVD on from season one. 👌👌 keep doing what you're doing boys.

  9. Love that you guys are doing the right thing and acknowledging the Traditional Owners and asking for permission to access certain areas.

  10. It shocks me that ANYONE could press dislike for a video like this. These people are beautiful and the place they call home is totally unreal. Sign me up to go live on Arnhem

  11. Thats a very good catch and the skill with the spear..mate..spot on..and thats how they lived for hundreds of years..and still passed down from generation…love from png…thats how we do it here too…
