Jeremy Wade's 10 Best Rivers For Catching Monster Fish
"It all starts with the fish," says Wade. "In order to hook our viewers it has to be potentially dangerous to humans, engaging everyone's hard-wired fascination with predators.”
That's not easy, even for those who don't see gaping mouths full of razor-sharp teeth as something to avoid.
"Most rivers have lost most of their giant fish in just the last 50 to 100 years, mainly as a result of overfishing,” Wade says. “Mere remoteness is no longer any guarantee that 'monsters' still inhabit a river, nor are old accounts of spectacular catches."
So which rivers does he recommend for the best monsters with fins?
