APFA and Chris Ball

Post by Kingfisher » Sun Jan 29, 2017 8:36 pm

I've just watched Chris Balls video on youtube and on there he mentioned that he had some involvement in APFA. I just wondered what it was?

I know Chris is a member on here, I was purely curious as to what it was, for no reason other than (well) being nosey really. :tea:

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

From memory Dick Walkers rod that Chris Yates used to catch the first twenty four pounder on APFA was owned by Chris Ball.

Yes, you're right Mark but it sounded as though there was more to it than just lending Chris the rod. Chris Yates also gave Chris Ball the hook he caught the 24lb carp on.

Hello Kingfisher,
When editing APFA some of the stuff was hived off onto VHS video at the studio. Neither Chris or Bob had a video recorder at the time so I was in a position to make copies for them to keep for a future time. The most interesting was masses of footage Hugh Miles shot of the carp taking mixers at the Monster Myths lake, though only a little of it was actually used in the film itself. There was quite a bit of the Redmire session that was never used which I transferred also.
