With Summer and Autumn dealt with in the first of these two atmospheric films we're now treated to the years remaining seasons of Winter and Spring in Seeking Shadows, part 2.
And beside documenting the continuing story of Martin Bowler's angling outings the DVD now becomes a record of some of the horribly cold winters we've endured recently, and the even more destructive floods that followed.
So with snow laying heavily across the quiet landscape there's no one to be seen for miles, but hang on is that a bivvy nestled amongst this wintry panorama, why yes it's Martin still chasing carp, and showing his dedication… or is it his madness?
But as the weeks roll by there's a break in the harsh weather and it's time for a friendly pike catching contest with the late Terry Lampard landing a beauty.
Whether it's floods, gale force winds, or heavy rain, he's out in it all, and still catching the obliging Milton Abbas carp, as well as some huge pike.
It was great seeing Martin writing one of his articles, in longhand, inside his bivvy while the rain thundered down, I imagine a lot of guys don't realise the time it takes to put a story together... let alone the years it takes to do something of the magnitude of this video.
And these carp aren't a soft touch either, and Martin has to use all of his skills to track them down and snare them, and that goes especially for one mirror carp that's evaded capture for over two years, and soon becomes his quest as Spring finally arrives in earnest.
There's an interlude on the Wye for barbel as the new river fishing season starts, but the lure of the 'big mirror' back at Abbas is always at the back of his mind and a late phone call has Martin racing back for a chance to land this special fish.
Punctuated with beautiful wildlife and scenic shots we even get to see some general off guard shots of Martin at home… in his kitchen, in his office, doing the laundry, and even in the shower?
With a beautifully tranquil feel running through the film thats only broken by the moments of excitement when a fish, that's usually monstrous in size, is played to the net, it has wonderful echoes of what we all go through and enjoy when we're out on the bank.
I had a quick word with Martin to say how much I enjoyed the film and then asked him what was on the agenda for him now, this was his reply:
'I won't be doing any long-term projects Clive, ie 2+ years for the foreseeable future as I've been doing this for over a decade now. This has been on top of my daily professional life and creatively I feel I've hit the wall!
It also becomes harder and harder to get back any investment which has to be a consideration. Who knows what the future will hold although one thing is for certain - there will be lots of fishing!'
So how do I sum up this release, well all I can say is I now have renewed affection for this wonderful hobby of ours, and Martin's film has certainly reinforced those quests for my own personal bests that nestle somewhere in my head.
