Minnows to Monsters
(1)

24:45          
Paul's off in search of monsters and on Loch Ness he meets up with local salmon angling expert Ala McGruer, who explains and illustrates the wide variety of tackle and techniques used for successful salmon fishing on Scotland's most famous loch. An early start on the River Ness brings Paul success with an Atlantic Salmon on the fly! Then it's time to cast off, as Paul learns from expert sea angler Dave Holt, the skills needed to tempt one of Scotland's largest marine species, the ton-up-plus Common Skate. Paul lands a Skate of 190lbs which is very close to the British record.
