Sea fishing is very popular among anglers in the UK and Ireland. Living in a country that boasts over 19,000 miles of coastline there is a natural fascination for the wilder, more remote areas of Great Britain, and more notably the many islands lying off the British and Irish coast.
In this new series, experienced angler, photojournalist and broadcaster Henry Gilbey, takes on the rugged outdoor challenge to explore a range of locations, including the Isles of Scilly, South East Ireland, South West Ireland, Bristol and Guernsey and uncovers the variety of fishing opportunities each has to offer. With no specific agenda, Henry travels to each destination with the aim of catching as many of the native fish as possible, whatever they may be.
Energetic, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, we follow Henry throughout his journey as he seeks out his fishing quarry, meets up with local characters, visits points of interest and discovers the islanders’ quirky traits and traditions.>!!
