Definately not Fishing Impossible, absolute pants. I quite enjoy listening to the grizzly tales in River Monsters and I find the different species interesting. Not seen the two you mention, will take a look.
Must admit I always enjoyed Day Ticket, loved the Matt Hayes/Mick Brown Rod Races however contrived they are. To be honest I will watch anything to do with fishing, it's funny watching the old Matt Hayes Total Fishing and seeing all the 'new' tactics and gear compares to the stuff now available!!
Day ticket was the business. Just like fishing with ya mate. Don't know why they never made another. Reel Wars was good until you realised the two guys were not just ordinary anglers but fishing mag editors.
Absolute favourite by a county mile was `A Passion for Angling' with Chris Yates and Bob Church, narrated by Bernard Cribbins. Just magical.
Also a great fan of the early John Wilson programmes which were first screened in the late 80's I think.
As mentioned by someone earlier, Day Ticket was very good if it's the one I'm thinking of with the two fellas fishing together, they had a great on screen chemistry and didn't take it all too seriously, a very enjoyable watch.
Honorable mention to Matt Hayes and Mick Brown. They've done quite a few fishing programmes together but The Great Rod Race was excellent even though Matt can be a little annoying and more than a little ego driven but I will forgive him for that as he's obviously a very capable angler. Mick Brown comes across as a very likeable chap.
Ones that I'm not a fan of `Thinking Tackle' - Korda Advertisement TV.
