Compleat Angler DVD
Here, two avid fishermen with a sense of history retrace the journey of the book and explore the locations, the fish and the methods that Izaak so beautifully describes. Geoffrey Palmer, one of Britain's best loved actors, with his dry wit and endearing charm is perfectly complemented by the encyclopaedic knowledge of successful businessman, East Ender Rae Borras. Together they explore what remains of the world of Izaak Walton. They visit some of his favourite haunts and try methods that he would have used 350 years ago.

As much about two great characters who share a passion as is about fishing, this warm, often humorous series oozes a gentle charm that will enthral and seduce fishermen and non fishermen alike.

The fish covered in the series are: Salmon, Pike, Chub, Carp, Grayling, Trout, Zander, Roach, Barbel, Eels, Ruffe, Bleak, Tench, Perch, Pike and Gudgeon.
