Watch #TheCatch - Channel 4's new action documentary episode one aboardthe Nelwyn netter, Govenek of Ladram

“They are the last hunters,” is how Incledon sums up the allure of fishermen to film-makers. “Fishing has danger, camaraderie, instinctual passion,” he says. “These are things most of us never get to experience or express in our day-to-day lives.”

James Incledon - Director of #TheCatch

Seems the first in an eight part series of James' documentary captured the essence of fishing in the sense he talked about judging by the feedback via Twitter last night:


Skipper Phil Mitchell and the crew aboard the newlyn Gillnetter, Govenek of Ladram


If the Great British Public buy more fish then the documentary and the efforts of the boys will be rewarded...


Missed yesterday's Newlyn Fish Festival? - remember, ALL the profit goes to the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen... 


once it's in the blood, it's worse than drugs...




I think this came as a complete surprise to all of us Emma ;-)




Looking forward the next week when it's the turn of the Brixham boys and their heavy beam trawl and scallop gear.
