Andy Nicholson - a man with angling in his blood and tutored by his father from the time he could first hold a rod. It is not just this deep passion for fishing that makes Andy the perfect presenter, but his tremendous experience in many different facets of angling. Join him as he shows you all you need to know by practical example. Part 1:
- SHRIMP FISHING FOR SALMON
Guest angler - Steve Sloan. Steve, from West Cumbria, a very old friend of Andy's, demonstrates just how successful his speciality of shrimp fishing can be.
- WORM FISHING FOR SALMON & SEA TROUT
With the emphasis on simplicity and mobility, Andy demonstrates his favoured method of worm fishing and catches two good salmon.
- COMPARISON BETWEEN SALMON AND SEA TROUT
Salmon and big sea trout are very similar in many respects, and Andy shows how to identify one from the other on the river bank.
Andy talks about the spinner and the spoon in detail and then demonstrates the different techniques for using them on the river. He goes on to catch a fine double-figure sea trout from the tidal waters. Part 2:
Guest fly-tier - James Waltham. Author and expert fly-tier James Waltham ties a special grayling fly for Andy, who uses it to great effect catching three nice fish on the Welsh River Dee.
Guest fly tier - James Waltham; Traditional charr angler - Phil Drinkwater; Guest angler - Steve Sloan. With help from his friends, Andy takes on the tricky problem of trying to catch the elusive deep-water charr on a specially tied fly.
In a short fishing sequence Andy shows that the rules are there to be broken by catching a sea trout on the fly during the day in an absolute downpour. Astonishing fishing action.
- NYMPH FISHING FOR RAINBOW TROUT
Guest angler - Ray Baker. Andy visits Packington Fishery in the West Midlands where, after a chat with owner Lord Guernsey, he enjoys some sound tuition and exciting trout fishing with resident instructor Ray Baker.
