But as a lure angler how am I supposed to feel about the show? They could have done one of the two pike episodes with topwaters, or done some perch fishing with lures. The program came from a certain perspective within fishing. For example, disparagingly referring to carp methods as "techno fishing" and then pointedly going and catching a carp with a simpler method. While I 110% agree about the bream, I don't share the perspective of the show. It wasn't inclusive of my style of fishing and therefore I think I'm reasonable in my criticism. The top gear formula: a car show that mostly consists of mates mucking about, isn't the issue. Mates could muck about with lures just as much as with floats and flies.
