I first met Alan in Canada, on the shores of Hottah Lake. We were fishing for Lake Trout and he was to be our guide. Nearly ten years later we’re still firm friends, sharing our passion for all things piscatorial. Alan is now the presenter of Fish Talk TV , an online, one-hour angling chat show, with guest stars and features and skype interviews. It’s an original and entertaining format. Alan has an encyclopaedic brain—a mindful of information on every fish you could think of. But what an angler this man is. He can turn his hand to most fish, but predators are his specialty.
