I agree with what has been said. I watched a couple of the later ones just out of curiosity really as I'd heard about the fishing round poles and islands etc at Rainbow.

I enjoyed the ones I watched so decided to go back to watch them all from episode 1 and even watched the ones I had already seen before. I found myself living the journey with him from day 1 and as you watched each new episode you got to know the anglers on there. Thoroughly enjoyed them so far and look forward to seeing future episodes.

I love his sense of humour, I bet its lost on some people though.

I even started watching the koi ones as I used to keep koi myself in days gone by.

edit. I heard he was an accountant but not sure if that's true or not as he refers to a furniture business in one of the episodes. Minted by the look of his house and Koi collection!

I reckon he was one of the infamous Essex Boys and made all his cash in the late 80's early 90's.

Haha. Yes! You just knew what was coming!

Funniest bit for me was when he was fishing with Dale (quiet lad). They arrive at a swim and they're looking around it.

Dale: "This is where I was this time last year....same dates....."

*silence*

Camera stays on Dale......

*silence*

Kev: "Yeah? Is there an 'and'?........'

Dale: "No"

Just cracks me up every time.

Anyone else fancy a fry up or curry when watching these?! Make me starving.

Finally got round to watching these. Absolutely-bloody-brilliant.

I never bothered before because I didn't know anything about the lake or Kevin and I just assumed it was the usual type of carp video blog that bore me after 5 minutes. I couldn't have been more wrong. I've never seen anything like them. Some of them are 1h 30m long and yet I watch them all the way through.

I started with the first one and wasn't sure what to make of it. Snags, Gazebos, TVs, DVD players, fridges........ I thought: "This ain't for me...." Then something just clicked..... I just didn't get his humour at first and didn't realise 99% of the time he is just taking the piss out of himself and everyone he meets. Oak trees, Golden eagles, baby magpies, giant insects........

He's got an amazing gift of putting people at ease and just chatting to them like he's known them all his life. I can't believe the stuff he gets away with!

It inspires my own fishing which couldn't be any more different to Rainbow.

I only have one complaint. WTF is the eating all about? Please tell me it's a joke? It's the most vile thing I've ever seen.

Other than that. Absolutely brilliant. If you read this Kev, thanks so much for making these. You're a star. You've captured something really special. Something I knew nothing about. Very emotional watching you talk about your Mum

Not really my bag this. Looks like catch at any cost. Yeah strong gear lines etc. But fishing over islands, round corners into snags. No thanks.

You can get the heaters on e bay they are paraffin heaters called big reds they are 50-60 new, if you get one just make sure you get the good paraffin with no smell, they are meant for heating massive areas, so the output heat is pukka.

Sterling effort as always Mr Ellis. Glad to see you keeping up the old school tradition of see no different in clothes you'd wear out with a night with the lads and the clothes you'd go fishing in.

Congratulations on your new Rainbow PB by the way.
