Brilliant video, those eels are something else and his passion for fish care is exceptional.

Not a massive fan of eels myself, but I think that's lack of knowing what to do when ones in the bottom of the net rather than anything else

Cracking vid, obviously a guy with an absolute passion for what he does. However as a result I've now spent the last few evenings watching far too many hours of eel vids on Youtube!!

Something I have never really focused on but as you say Gerry, they are there in lot of waters under the radar because people do not specifically target them, so they donít come out. The biggest I have ever seen was around 1992 and it was big, had / has a history for doing them and I will say it was 6 plus caught by a tench angler in the morning on meat, a big fish. The guy who ran the place was an avid predator angler and he had taken quite a few large eels as well as pike

Great video.

Sadly in The Netherlands the eel population is declining because of commercial fishing, too many dams, giant blades of turbines for producing electricity, etc :-(

A mate of mine caught an 105cm eel on a swan mussel a few years a go, a real monster.

What I loved about the video was the dedication of the angler and the well constructed rigds so the eel doesn't swallow the hook.

Love ESP for these specimen video's.!

I saw one of his earlier films man is a legend huge respect for him

I remember when they Electro fished Yeoveney lake think it was late 70s
and these Huge eel`s estimated to be around 5 to 6 pounds at least turned up every one was shocked at how many and the size of them dont think anyone had ever caught one so nobody knew they were there

I watched that earlier today, that's one dedicated man. Can't stand the things myself but they were quite some beasts he caught .
