    Some years ago there was a really nice BBC series with 2 blokes fishing in a different place each week. I'd like to get hold of a DVD if there is one but I can't remember the title or their names. Anyone remember?

    It is an Australian programme, but I think that they have the same DVD type that we do.

    I thought it was marvellous too ;)

    Was it called Fly Fishing, by J.R. Hartley?

    OK - Maybe I am wrong - the site says it is Region 4 DVD, so you would need a multi-region DVD player

    I seem to remember that (they got to a swim by jumping in the lake from the top of a tree one week). I think involved Chris Yates (the carp specialist) but I am not sure.

    Googled him, but only found this book, no video or dvd.

    I feel really old all of a sudden. I haven't been fishing since I was a kid and this brought it all back!

    Fab Foodie hanging-on in quiet desperation ...

    That was a great series, great locations, good gentle banter, tall tales and a great incidental music/soundtrack that has is permanently lodged in my mental juke-box...still, there's always a river somewhere...[cue acoustic guitar]

    If you like that you'd like Waterlog magazine, to which Chris Yates et al contribute.

    It's a great series.

    It was, I recall watching it long after I had stopped fishing, but still enjoyed it.

    I think it was their enthusiasm and dedication that made it so enjoyable.

    Could have been Rex Hunt (no, not rhyming slang).
    For someone's who's not interested in fishing at all (apart from eating them) I thought it was a very enjoyable programme.

    It was brilliant, I think Bernard Cribbings did the voiceover!
