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 go course fishing for bream and roach at Llandegfedd Reservoir in Wales. They are highly privileged as they have been given special permission to fish for these species on this water, and are the first ever to do so. However, it's Matt's personal best hybrid that steals the day, which he firmly believes would have been a record breaker if caught in Ireland.
Lots of small perch are all they can bag on the Thames near Henley, but moving on to Grafham Reservoir, they fish night and day and, although unsuccessful with their intended zander, they do catch lots of pike and Matt picks up a 2lb perch.
