I've actually spoken to Jeremy Wade through e-mail.A couple of years ago I wrote to him politely complaining as to why the editors of his programme felt the need to add on the sound of a fishing reel when he was winding a reel that obviously didn't have one of these click functions as you wind. He totally agreed with me and said that he'd also notice that was going to ask them to stop doing it.

I watched an episode last night where he was in central Africa fishing around the Zambezi fishing for Vundo cat fish. He caught a couple of whoppers. I'd like to know exactly what timeframe it was, they make it look as though he caught the fish quite quickly, the truth is you probably had to wait several hours :-)

Jeremy admitted that the waiting part is cut off during the behind the scenes of River Monsters.

I think you will probably find that all angling programs are heavily edited. I remember hearing about the making of Go Fishing which was an angling program featuring John Wilson, UK angler who was very very popular a few years ago, he is now retired to Thailand. Anyway, I was talking to a guy once when I was fishing, he told me that they were making an episode of Go Fishing at the venue that he fishes. It took them two days to make the program because he just couldn't catch and if fish to make the program properly. When the show was finally aired, you would think that he was catching fish every few minutes.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

This is probably true to the piranhas in River Monsters.
