Great to see angling on BBC2 in new series “The Big Fish”
Sunday 11th 8pm BBC2
A group of passionate anglers from the UK push their skills to the limit in six epic locations around the world. In each place, they face challenges for which they need to combine their own talents with local techniques to outwit the environment they find themselves in. The series explores the incredible world of fishing, looking at its variety of fish and their behaviour in distinct environments, and revealing surprising animals and stunning landscapes.
The warmer weather conditions saw an improvement in visiting numbers to Witton Castle lakes with 53 anglers taking advantage of the late summer to fish the lakes. Anglers were kept busy out on the lakes with a high catch rate and returned a very good rod average of 4.5.
