Angling with a rod and line is a gift as old as history itself. It is something everyone can enjoy - boy or girl, young or old - a hobby, a sport, a pastime or a passion - or for the lucky few, a profession.
Regardless of how we perceive it, angling takes us to another world, a place if sparkling rivers and mist-shrouded pools, of anticipation, tension, drama and fulfilment.
'Catching the Impossible' tells the story of just such a journey through angling - of childhood inspiration, of discovery and revelation - beautiful places, amazing fish, the highs and lows, the triumphs and disasters, the friendships and wildlife, the best bite, the longest fight, the biggest fish - all gloriously illustrated to help transport you to this other world, an adventure in which Martin and Hugh travel through Britain in an attempt to film the capture of 'impossible'-sized fish.
