    Was that really over 3 hours?! Blimey the stuff that I learnt! But then the stories! I enjoyed his episodes on Thinking Tackle and I also remembers predators and carp crew, Sad loss.. do not keep us waiting you have to organise another interview like yesterday! I hope this episode gets the viewing figures it deserves!

    I was one of Simon's first students, back in '97 ish. FDFS, he's a great bloke. Somehow though when I try to go into "fisheries science mode" carp anglers don't believe me. Somehow Simon gets the point across.
