‘The fish of monks, kings and thieves alike.’
Dan is an angler who seeks out forgotten ponds in the southeast of England in search of the wildie, an older strain of feral carp.
His diligent research leads him to a castle moat, an ancient abbey, a manor house stew pond—and finally—a vicarage pool.
Using a simple approach, he fishes with an old split cane spinning rod and a centre pin reel, a bruised old shoulder bag and nothing more complicated than bread as his choice of bait.
This film exemplifies the way we fish at Fallon’s Angler: pure and simple, with a backdrop that leaves you lost in history and time.
