x 30 to buy      x 15 to rent     
Matt Hayes returns to the Coarse and Match Fishing Channel with a second series of the 24 Hour Rod Race. This series sees him take on six fresh challenges in locations as diverse as the Wye Valley and the UK Canal network... the challenges are, if anything, harder than Season One and really put Matt's all round fishing skills to the test.

Matt is back for another series of punishing fishing challenges. In the first episode of series two he’s off to the Wye valley for a multi-species hunt. But to make things interesting, he needs one of them to be a game fish. He uses his natural charm to get access to someone’s private water in a picturesque village on the River Arrow before heading to the Wye proper.

Matt’s at Kings Bromley Marina on the Trent and Mersey Canal with a double mission – to show that canals can offer top-notch fishing by catching a 3lb+ fish from the network. He’s keen to show just how much fun predator fishing in marinas can be.

Matt heads to a river he’s never fished before – the Dove - and he’s got a serious challenge ahead of him - to catch a 2lb grayling and a 4lb chubb, but the cold weather isn’t going to make things easy for him.

To the famous Testwood Fishery this time, with a 2lb roach or a 12oz dace in his targets, either of which would be the fish of a lifetime. Once again the wintery conditions look like making life a bit tricky.

Anglers Paradise is a huge fishing complex in Devon, but that doesn’t mean this challenge is going to be easy. Matt’s got 24 hours to catch 5 of the different ornamental species of fish that old stomping ground holds, but there’s a twist. He’s got to do it on the fly.

For the first time Matt has some help, as he’s joined by Babs Kijewski, a German carping expert angler from Cologne, but the challenge is doubly hard: they must both catch two carp: one from the top, one from the bottom.
