Fishing Programmes on TV

There is a surprising amount of fishing programmes on British television, with programmes ranging from documentaries on British and international fishing such as Trawlermen and Deadliest Catch, and much more lighthearted programmes like Robson’s Extreme Fishing Challenge. While some of these programmes are shown on domestic channels it is the digital channels which show the majority of fishing programmes.
