World Fishing Day – Hour 16
Ex newsreader and keen salmon angler, Fiona Armstrong takes the reins in the studio. To start her session, she hosts a live debate on the plight of Atlantic salmon and what can be done to help these amazing fish. Joining her on the panel is Guy Edwards from Salmon and Trout Conservation UK, Anne Woodcock from fishing booking service, Fishpal and Deidre Brennan, director/producer of a new film called Atlantic Salmon Lost at Sea. Back on location, we go back to the River Test, fly fishing with James Murray and Charles Jardine as they get into some fish. In Texas, Bubba has struck gold and rods are bending all over the boat as we get a close look at an Aligator Gar. There's no room for nets here, as ropes are used to boat these amazing fish. Hooked on Fishing presenter, Paul Young also joins Fiona in the studio. In Paris, lure surpremo has moved location in Paris to the Festival of the Marne River, to celebrate World Fishing Day. We rejoin Andy Ford on his road trip through England and find him at the Isaac Walton fishery in Staffordshire for another World Fishing day event. There's a new leader in the Carp Wars Live match, can he hold on for the win?
