The Big Catch
Eight passionate enthusiasts compete in this epic fishing contest as they set out on an adventure that takes them to the most dramatic and challenging fishing destinations around the world, from the Mekong River in Laos to the snow-capped mountains of British Columbia. Contending with tropical climes and sub-zero temperatures, the contestants are tested in every aspect of their endurance and expertise as adventurer Ben Fogle challenges them to combine their own talents with local fishing techniques. The competitors are judged by leading angler, Matt Hayes, who is joined by local experts in each stunning location. Alongside the many twists and turns of a tense competition, the series explores the real life jeopardy of the incredible world of fishing. Produced by the BBC’s renowned Natural History Unit the series features a rich variety of fish and their behaviour, filmed in locations as diverse as Iceland, Costa Rica and Zambia.
