In this 4 part series, Robson is on a mission to discover the weird, the wonderful and the way-off-limits of the fishing world. Robson learns new tricks, hears old stories and eats pretty much everything he catches.
From the Azores to South Africa, from the swamps of Louisiana to the jungle of Costa Rica, he’ll be going on boats, in canoes, up river and underwater, chasing some of the most elusive and terrifying fish on the planet. He’ll be learning new tricks, hearing old stories, and eating pretty much everything he catches – like a true hunter gatherer. This is something that Robson believes in passionately. He doesn’t fish just for fun!
The series begins in Costa Rica, living with the Maleku tribe as they hunt the elusive machaca fish, a relative of the piranha. In Louisiana, USA, Robson tries his hand at underwater spear fishing with the locals and attempts to snare a barracuda; off the coast of South Africa he reels in a hammerhead shark; in Europe, he fishes at the mouth of the Ebro River, hunting a giant catfish; while at sea in the Azores, he puts all his new-found skills to the test in an attempt to catch a 600lb blue marlin.
