Matt Hayes is widely regarded as one of the the best all-round anglers in britain and Mick Brown is known to be the predatory angler with an excellent knowledge of UK fishing sites. Join them both on this, their latest challenge, as they travel across England and Wales to bag some truly monster fish and break many of their own personal bests, catching some of the biggest fish of their careers. Meeting some of the current record holders along the way, Matt and Mick learn more about the fish they are hoping to catch and when and how each record was achieved.
In this volume Matt and Mick fish for mirror carp on monument lake in Shropshire, where Mick lands a personal best with a whopping 44lb 2oz mirror carp. They also go barbel fishing on the Radwell and Sharbrook stretch of the river ouse in Buckinghamshire, where the current barbel record of 19lb 6oz was caught. Although not able to beat that remarkable catch, mick manages to break his own personal barbel record with an impressive 11lb 1oz catch.
The boys then take a boat out on the Llandegfedd Reservoir in Wales to fish for pike. It was 12 years ago that the record pike was caught here, weighing in at 46lb 13oz. Will Matt and Mick be able to catch anything of this staggering proportion - just wait and see!
