It’s difficult to believe, but our series ‘A Passion for Angling’ was first shown on BBC 2 in 1993, so September this year is our 20th Anniversary.

The important cause for celebration is that the series of six fifty minute films are unchanged with the passing of time, depicting a peaceful world when there were lots of fish in our rivers and seemingly more time to catch them.

The DVD is still available – and always will be – and is still considered by many to be the best fishing series ever made. Sales remain strong year after year, with new generations of anglers discovering that there is a whole world of fishing out there that doesn’t have to revolve entirely around carp, bolt-rigs and boilies.
Sadly, production costs of the DVD and several postage increases mean the price for the complete set of six films is now £38.50 [incl. UK p&p and VAT]. This is the first increase in ten years and we regret having to do so but Fisheries Minister Richard Benyon thinks it’s worth it!

Close friends Martin and Jo Bowler have added the series to their on-line shop and they have PayPal set up too. [We don’t have enough turn- over to justify the expense]. www.martinbowler.co.uk
Sue and I hope you continue to enjoy the films. Here we are with flags – well it was the Year of the Olympics and we did win ‘everything’!
