Episode #029

Duration: 2h 53min

At 29, some might say that you’re in the prime of your life (or already past it, if you’re Elliott) and we reckon that’s just about right for #CYP029. The sheer diversity of fishing that we’ve crammed into the show is quite something to behold…

Where better to kick it off, than with another round of Big Pit Tales from the living legend that is Dave Lane. This time Dave turns his attentions to the awesome power of Mother Nature, and the disruption and mayhem that she can cause… especially if you’re as accident-prone as Dave!

Away from the big pits of myth and legend, the familiar surroundings of Linear were no less enthralling when we joined Tom ‘The Machine’ Maker in the middle of an incredible, 52-fish hit on Hardwick Smiths. In a film that would be tough to repeat, even for Tom, we get right to the heart of a session that set the grapevine alight in January. He walks us though everything he’s doing, in detail, to keep those mega Linear carp coming, and trust us when we say, this shoot is bloomin’ packed with ‘em!

If you’re going to do a winter campaign and film it, then starting it off with mirrors of 42lb, 39lb and 35lb is probably about how you’d script it, right? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Elliott, when he began his love affair with a quiet Cotswold pit, about 1000 miles from home! You get exactly what you’d expect from our man, warts and all, highs and lows, beers and BBQs and we think you might just love it…

After such a mega response to part one of his diary, Nige Sharp is back with the follow-up, and it contains exclusive footage of some more of the A-Team that his Berkshire target water holds (think a 40lb mirror, a stunning big common and several thirties to boot), as well as a privileged look at Frimley, a syndicate that’s close to his heart, and details of a new challenge for the colder months.

If that little lot wasn’t enough, then how about this little eclectic selection to cap off issue 29? Jonny Mac tells us about the time he made a schoolboy error, the urban legend John Lam reveals his catch of a lifetime, Joe Morgan has an epic tale of woe in The One That Got Away, and finally, Tom Gibson takes us to casualty with his brush with A&E!
