Confession time, I will lie prostrate in a bath of maggots, and recite 24 'hail Issacs'.   I watched it, all of it, from the cringe worthy beginning where a bunch of guys, (two experts, and two 'ce

I wouldn't be so despondent about the future of Angling in the UK, its no use thinking that young anglers are going to mirror traditional methods that we used or still use. For example the fastest gro

One of the more important "excuses" for a blank (among the hundreds of thousands) - WHAT??! YOU HAVE A BANANA IN YOUR LUNCH BAG !! - - GOOD LORD




Over here it's bit different phone, it's, "Have you a banana in your lunch box, or are you just pleased to see me?"

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

The trailer of a bunch of 'lads' being 'lads' does no great credit to either angling in general or Korda in particular.


Yet twitter and other such channels have been full of support and encouragement from both the angling and non angling public. I have seen plenty of posts from people stating they would love to have a go at fishing, had never thought about trying it before etc.


It's not my cup of tea, angling show wise. Although it has become popular given only three episodes. I certainly cant see how it has done any harm to angling what so ever.

Maybe if they get a second series they'll get some celebs that really deserve the title. I hope so.

5 seconds of fake enthusiastic nonsense made me turn over ,why do we need presenters who dont have a clue other than on autocue or earpiece?

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!


There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong


Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

Grangers law : anything i say will  turn out the opposite or not happen at all!

I'm easily entertained so quite tolerant of most fishing programmes but this one had me reaching for the 'off' button within a minute.

It's never a 'six', let's put it back

have to say I cant stand this either! episode one was a tragedy (or travesty: insert whichever you so choose)

personally cant stand the irritating little guy (Ali) on there; seen him of "thinking tackle" a few times (which I hate as well) and each and every time he has grated on me in the extreme.

dean ive seen be quite interesting occasionally and if he was given the right show im sure could be a really good fishing ambassador; sadly this isn't that show!

it is what it is...mindless drivel for the mindless drivel public...add it to the long list of nanny state TV

I watched about 90 seconds of "The Big Fis Pis Turn Off"


It had nothing to do with angling as I understand it
