Jeremy Wade is a geezer,I watched him again last night fishing in the DRC for Tiger-fish,then I turned over and watched namby-pamby Robson Green fishing in Cuba,his histrionics when he lands something decent are cringeworthy,aparently he is a nice guy as he lives not far away and I have chatted to a few people who have met him but I couldnt fish with him,it would drive me crackers,Jeremy Wade and Robson should have an X-treme fish-off competition :wink:

Ive watched the first 3 seasons over the last week and ive found them all brilliant so far, the bloke is awesome really fearless in some instances im not too sure about night fishing in a tiny little boat in caymen infested waters :unsure:

One of my favourite episodes so far is the tribal one, where he makes a kite from banana leaves and a lure from spiderswebs that drags beneath without a hook on it as the web tangles on the fishes mouth.

Been a fan of Jeremy Wade for years, also check out his older Jungle Hooks series.. at least check the plane crash incident on youtube or something :)

The pictures of him and the tigerfish are wicked.. do an internet image search

I watched that episode with the goliath tiger fish, unbelievable looking creature really, I certainly wouldn't be unhooking it by hand :wassnnme: , I also liked the way that the whole village of circa 200 people got a meal from it.

One thing I couldn't believe & still have problems getting my head around is the depth of that river, 720 FT or 220 meters + whichever way you want to look at it, I would imagine that the are still some undiscovered species down there :ninja:

Theres a pic in one of his books,some creature rolling on the surface of the amazon,he said it was big and unknown,it looks huge but you cant work out exactly what it is from the pic :unsure: There are new creatures being discovered often,a new fish recently,a new species of owl,stoll lots of mysterious creatures out there to surprise us :ninja:
