Fly fishing is the focus this week and Keith’s guest will be Charles Jardine, one of the sport’s truly colourful characters. As well as being amongst the finest anglers of his generation he’s a well respected fly-tyer and coach so you’re sure to learn a thing or two.
You can see Charles in action as he ventures out for some winter sport at Lechlade Trout Fishery in the Cotswolds. With the fish in prime condition at this time of year he enjoyed a terrific session that exceeded even his own expectations.
As time is running out for coarse anglers to fish the rivers, Keith takes to the bank of his beloved Thames. Confident in his approach of fishing bread to target the winter roach at one of his favourite locations, Old Father Thames provided a few surprises.

Keith will also have his regular look at the prospects in store for all anglers this weekend in Fishery Focus. He’ll have advice on what methods and baits are working best at some typical UK venues, and the weather conditions you can expect.
Next week on Tight Lines Keith will be joined by match angler Steve Ringer. One of the most popular men in the sport, the former Fish’O’Mania champion will have plenty of tips to help all anglers improve their results on commercial waters.
