Watch Olympic decathlete, Dean Macey, attempt to catch a selection of Britain's finest freshwater fish and beat a few of his personal bests along the way.
Carp Dean is joined by one of his heroes, Carp expert extraordinaire Terry Hearn, in an hunt for a 20lb + Carp. Terry recommends the Blue Pool on the Burghfield Complex near Reading - an excellent day ticket venue. Dean and Terry bait their swims, hook up a barrel boilie and PVA bag and wait for the buzzer. With his characteristic "Get in there", Dean soon gets the bites, but will he hit the magic 20 pounder?
Grayling It's off to the River Frame in Dorset where Dean is given a master class on how to catch the beautiful Grayling - a fish Dean has never caught before - by the legendary Pete Reading. Pete sets Dean up with a simple Avon float rig with a bulk shot grouped together at the bottom to make sure the bait gets down and a small dropper shot six inches from the small hook. They fire in some red maggots... and the bites come thick and fast.
