Description
Matt Hayes, widely regarded as one of the best all-round anglers in Britain, and Mick Brown, a predatory angler with an excellent knowledge of UK fishing sites, take up the challenge to catch every species of freshwater fish found in Britain at different locations. 35 fish in 30 days.

With less than a day to catch each fish, Matt faces an uphill struggle. Some fish, such as the ferox trout, stone loach and wild carp are virtually impossible to find let alone to catch. Some of the fish are so small - like the bullhead or miller's thumb - that anglers would not normally attempt to catch them. Plus there are foreign, big fish like wels catfish, ancient fish such as eels, and tiny fish including sticklebacks.

To catch each species Matt uses diverse styles of angling, from fly-casting for trout and salmon to legering with modern paste baits for carp. He demonstrates classic styles such as free-lining and trotting with floats, plus he uses cut-down tackle for the mini-species, such as loach and sticklebacks.

Matt and Mick make their journey around the UK in a custom-fitted van complete with bunk beds, a small stove for cooking and special storage for their tackle. The van itself is a state-of-the-art fisherman's haven, fitted with rod racks, trays, compartments and even a fridge-freezer for bait.

Half way through their adventure Matt and Mike are in the heart of the Black Country at Himley Hall, Dudley and after a successful days fishing Matt beats his own personal record, landing a magnificent 15lb 13oz grass carp.

Day 17 and the hunt for gudgeon, roach and dace is on at the Whittington Canal, Stourbridge, a sentimental spot where Matt caught his very first fish. Moving on to the river Teifi, and with the help of local expert Stefan Jones, they finally catch the sea trout. Another night-time fishing session sees them at Burton Mere Estate, Chester, where their skill and perseverance finally pay off, and they can at last strike the elusive catfish off their list!


Important Information on PAL Region 0 DVD compatibility.
PAL Region 0 is now the most popular format sold by Green Umbrella. It ignores the original Region Coding designed for DVDs. If you own a multi-region DVD player (i.e. one which will play any Region of DVD) AND a television which can receive the PAL signal then this DVD will function correctly.

To the best of our knowledge (although we accept no responsibility for the accuracy of this information, and would thoroughly recommend that if you are in any doubt you consult your electrical retailer for advice before making a purchase) this PAL Region 0 DVD is designed to function in the following PAL TV countries:

Abu Dhabi, Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Ascension Island, Australia, Austria, Azores, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Botswana, Brunei, Cameroon, Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Cayman Islands, China (Peoples Republic), Christmas Island, Cook Island, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, Easter Island, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Gambia, Gaza & West Bank, Germany, Ghana, Gibraltar, Greece, Greenland, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Holland, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macao, Macedonia, Madeira, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Montenegro, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norfolk Island, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Sardinia, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Tonga, Tristian Da Cunah, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, UNITED KINGDOM, Vanuatu, Vatican City State, Yemen, Yugoslavia, Zambia, Zanzibar, and Zimbabwe.

NB. This DVD will NOT work in NTSC TV regions (such as United States & Canada) unless your DVD player can play Region 0 DVD's (ie it is multi-region) AND your TV can receive the PAL signal. If you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase.

However, although we offer no guarantees, some of our customers in USA and Canada have successfully played these DVD's on their PC (not TV) equipment. Again, if you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase.
