Description

Oliver McGilloway presents this documentary about coarse fishing, interviewing enthusiasts and providing information on the various ways to catch pike and roach. 

Though, more widely popular in England and "the continent", fishing for species of coarse fish is becoming increasingly popular in Northern Ireland. Victor Refausse finds fishing for pike "much more satisfying" than salmon and trout fishing, with better odds of landing a fish only part of the attraction. What is clear is that, regardless of whether or not you catch a fish, there is enjoyment in the wait. 

Colin Martin and Michael Connell show different types of bait and explain how they can best be used.
