Episode 1 – Iceland

Preview

Eight anglers embark on their first expedition to the wilderness of Iceland, where they brave extreme cold, wind and rain to fish in some of the most challenging conditions they have ever faced. In the north-west, close to the Arctic Circle, the anglers fish from sea kayaks in the freezing fjord before learning to harvest cod using a traditional Icelandic technique. Further south, in a lake heated by volcanic vents, they fly-fish for some of the largest brown trout in the world.
