Rex begins his tour of England at the Brame Bridge Manor House on the famous Itchen river, abundant with brown trout. This is fishing heaven for Rex as Ron Wilton, the resident riverkeeper, tells Rex all about the responsibilities of his job whilst showing him the ideal fly fishing spots in these tranquil surroundings.
Rex's sidekick, Steve Starling, takes a trip to Billingsgate Market in Canary Wharf with the head chef of Selfridges. Their mission: to select a fish and prepare a piscatorial breakfast for our hungry crew.
Next, we visit norwich and catch up with John Wilson at his privately-owned lake, abundant with carp. Rex and his team then move on to Cambridge with its internationally-renowned university and surrounding canals, rich with pike and perch. We also make a trip to Andover and wet a line in a peaceful trout fishery.
We end by investigating the vast array of tackle available at sheltons of Peterborough, including a bait boat that drops your ground bait for you via remote control!
