Fishing Britain – Carp fishing with a Pike Lure

Put a pike lure into the water and see what comes out! Hywel Morgan was not expecting a big mirror carp. That’s just one of the surprises in this episode of Fishing Britain.

Fake bread versus Mighty White for carp: flyfisher Hywel shows how to tie and fish the bread fly – yup, really. Top coarsefisher Jan Porter uses real punched bread to create a recipe for ‘dobbing’. We are at Bishops Bowl Fishery where sneaky carp hang round the margins – and we have superb underwater footage.

Hywel runs us through his pre-season tackle checks and shows us what to look for before hitting the big trout waters.

We have cookery. What’s in the pan, Jan? The Kitchen Porter cooks up a tasty treat on the bankside and shares the recipe.

David reads the news, including one British woman’s 500lb fish caught while she was on holiday in Thailand.

And Here are the links for this week’s Hooked on YouTube…
