We have been challenged with some unusual requests, however this was particularly out of the ordinary.

The producers of the ITV series Fishing Impossible wanted us to go catch blue sharks off the coast of Cornwall, from a helicopter!

Well not exactly catch but to use our Bambi bucket, more normally used for dropping water on fires, however this time we would be dropping chum to create a slick round the fishing boat!

Three blue sharks were caught, tagged and returned to the sea where they can be tracked as they migrate around the oceans helping to give scientists a greater understanding of this most important of species.

On this particular project we worked in conjunction with who filmed all the action from their Hughes 500.
