Matt Watson gives fishing action an entirely new meaning. You're probably thinking "action" means that moment when lines tighten as a fish grabs the bait and runs. Think again.

For Watson, the action is jumping out of a helicopter and landing on top of a marlin for a wrestling match of sorts, or catching one from a PWC or surfboard.

Watson is the host of "The Ultimate Fishing Show," which combines extreme angling, exotic locations, and fishing tips and information. The goal of the show, says Watson, is to get people excited about sportfishing.

The show, which has aired in New Zealand since 2004, can be seen in the United States on America One Television Network, and is seeking U.S. distributors for its range of DVDs.
