Actor and passionate fisherman Robson Green is on a mission to discover the weird, the wonderful and the way-off-limits that the angling world has to offer. Working alongside some of the finest in their field, his exhilarating adventure series Extreme Fishing with Robson Green takes him to the greatest fishing destinations ever seen; chasing the most elusive and terrifying creatures on the planet, learning new tricks, hearing old stories and eating pretty much everything he catches. From ice fishing in Siberia, mining eggs on the side of an active volcano in Papua New Guinea and struggling with the Mekong Giant Catfish in Thailand, to surviving a Force 10 hurricane on a Canadian trawler, catching a thirty-pound King Salmon in Patagonia and dancing the Salsa in Havana, this is an extraordinary modern-day fishing odyssey with tales of victory, defeat, struggle and joy. Complete with exclusive off-camera capers, top locations and best and worst catches, this laugh-out-loud adventure is jam-packed full of facts, fishing tips and, most importantly, fun.
Born in Northumberland on 18 December 1964, Robson Green is one of the best known faces on British Television. He has been associated with a number of the most celebrated television dramas of recent times including Soldier Soldier, Reckless, Touching Evil and Wire in the Blood. Robson still lives in Northumberland and spends whatever spare time he has seeing his Son Taylor, fishing, reading, walking and going to the gym. This is his first fishing book. Charlotte Reather first spied Robson Green across a sea of meat-heads and spray-tanned strippers at a cage-fight at the Radisson Edwardian, Heathrow, and asked if she could interview the actor for a magazine. Robson says, 'It was fate and when I read the article I instantly knew Charlotte was the only person who could write this book. She is a serious talent, hilarious, gifted and inspired.' Charlotte writes comedy scripts for TV and film. She is a columnist and contributor to several magazines and newspapers including, NFU Countryside, The Field, Country Life and the Daily Telegraph. She lives with her husband in Washington DC and this is her first book. www.charlottereather.com 'Charlotte is incredibly funny, fearless and terrifyingly ambitious. Look out world!'
