Discovery Home & Leisure will be searching for the next face of fishing at this year’s Go Fishing show at the NEC, Birmingham from 28 March – 30 March.
Auditions will be held on the Discovery Home & Leisure stand B70 at the show. Simulating a real TV environment, potential presenters will be filmed as they read from an autocue and televised live on a giant plasma screen where other visitors can watch their efforts! Judged by Discovery Home & Leisure, the lucky winner will net themselves a part on the channel in 2003.
Sure to reel in the visitors, fishing legends Paul Young, Mick Brown and Jeremy Wade will be on the hand to answer fishing queries, swap bait secrets and even compare fish tales. Paul will be on the stand on Friday, Mick on Saturday and Jeremy on Sunday. What’s more, there will also be a chance to win a day’s fishing with Zander guru Matt Hayes.
Visitors will also be given sneak previews of Discovery Home & Leisure’s two new fishing programmes – Predators, a chilling ten part series in April that gets the low down on predatory fish and The Great Rod Race, a fifteen part series starting in May that takes up the challenge to catch every species of freshwater fish found in Britain at different locations in just 30 days. This road trip challenge is taken on by Matt Hayes and Mick Brown.
