A brand new angling show for satellite TV viewers – Game Fisher’s Diary – is to be broadcast on Discovery SHED from Friday December 6th 2013, running until January 24th.
The made-for-TV series from ‘Fishing TV’ sees presenter Rae Borras travel around England, Ireland and beyond to pit his wits against some of the canniest fly fishing adversaries around, and meet characters who make their living from the sport.
His adventures take him from Yorkshire to Ireland, Iceland to France, Scotland to the iconic River Test in Hampshire, as he fishes for salmon, trout and Arctic char and enjoys plenty of laughs along the way.
The eight programmes will be broadcast in a series of ‘double headers’ on Friday nights from 10pm on Discovery SHED – the full broadcast schedule and episode breakdown is below.
The entire series, including several additional episodes, is available to ‘Fishing TV Premium’ members online, on mobile and on tablet, and will soon be available under the free to download ‘Fishing TV’ app on Samsung Smart TV and blu-ray. ‘Fishing TV Premium’ membership costs from just £3.99 a month – find out more at www.fishingtv.com .
