He implies that his new fish tv thing has been trolled and attacked by others - hence this video being 'created'

But why would they, what's the point of targeting a middle aged fisherman....

On reflection hoping it's a malicious attack using AI to copy his voice? With all his videos on youtube it would be possible for someone to do if they really wanted to.

Hard to see how this isn't true.

Personally I've always respected Martin Bowler and thought him one of the 'real' ones.

That's his reputation in the bin though if it is true.

Who's the person asking him?

This kind of behaviour has been going on for years. I know one that paid locals to have photos taken with their catfish on the ebro and claim them as his captures. Several images of other people's captures ended up in his book. It's nothing new.

I dont think any of these so called famous anglers have reputations just fronts, occasionally those fronts drop unintentionally when they have money on their minds.

Except Tel of course.

I may be missing the point but

I canít see anywhere where bowler says to the captor you should rehook the barbel
I hear
You want to Rehook the barbel as in a question and he sounds iffy about doing that
Surely itís the captor whoís in the wrong who wants it videoed

Exactly that, if it is true it is a real shame

It wasn't him that released the clip though, and I think Bowler will find it very difficult to even have a case

"This person released this clip and I want compo"
"Well, its claiming to be me saying that I want to rehook a Barbel"
".......But it is you though?"
"Prove it"
"Prove it isn't?"

Unless Bowler can get an admission that its Iranian level AI trickery then he's going to get nowhere. The fact you can hear the other angler, identify him rather easily, and theres evidence that its a Drennan video?

Good luck.

Yeah, but those perch are something else when you fish for them with worms, that's bound to go wrong no matter how hard you try to avoid it. Been there as a kid also, and not just once.

Martin has written that someone has said they created the clip and that he's taking legal action. Whether or not that's the case is for others to decide.

I heard many years ago of a pike video that wasn't quite what it seemed. All the chat and tactics were covered in a day but there one thing missing..,, a fish! The angler fished it hard for several days and when he caught one, the camera crew were called back to complete the shoot!
