We’ve all dreamed of quitting our jobs, packing our fishing kit and heading out into the wilderness to do nothing but eat, sleep and fish. That’s exactly what talented filmmakers and lifelong fly fishers Chase and Aimee did. They swapped the comforts of home for a vintage 1985 VW Westfalia motorhome and headed west, towards the fly fishing Mecca of Montana. After dodging wild, 18-wheeler-flipping storms, and a spell among the geysers and grizzlies of Yellowstone, they eventually make it to a remote lake in Montana rumoured to hold rare Golden Trout. Despite a greuelling hike, the lake proved worth it, and not just for the trout.

Host Randy Bowser takes you on a tour of a couple of the diverse locations available when Fishing the Yucatan Coastline. First up, he and good friend and fellow guide Bob Thomas are fishing on the Ria at their hometown of Progresso. It's a backwater lagoon of crystal clear water that's only 3 feet deep and they're lure fishing for the Speckle Sea Trout that are found here in large numbers. Small rubber jigs and top water lures seem work best, the Sea Trout love attacking the surface lurers and provide some spectacular action when they do so. The second location is the Biosphere Reserve at Rio Logartos, on the Northern tip of Yucatan, where Randy teams up with Diego Nunez Sr. the Reserve is another area of rias and lagoons, but this time they're targeting Tarpon and Snook. They start in open the open water of the lagoon, where they can see the Tarpon and can cast at them. Then they head into the smaller, tighter channels amongst the mangroves where a large fish might be lurking under the vegetation. It's difficult to cast here, so randy has to improvise, but once a fish bites, you know about it. To watch Fishing the Yucatan Coastline now, just login or register

Rae Borras jumps over to Eastern Iceland for this episode of The Game Fishers Diary, to have a crack at his very first Icelandic Atlantic Salmon. Albeit a regular on Scottish Salmon rivers, Rae is a stranger to the immense scale of rivers, mountains and active volcanoes that make up Iceland. King among these rivers is the Breiddalsa, known especially for the well above average size of its Salmon, making it perhaps one of the greatest places in the world for the species. With the help of his witty guide Jonas, after hours of trekking and exploration, Rae gets a chance to land his very first Icelandic Atlantic Salmon. Rae then joins fisherman and conservationist Throstur for an afternoon session, and an education on the farming programmes trying to introduce even bigger salmon to the Breiddalsa.
