Not one of Kevin's nor is it of the same standard but some Swedish guys that have put a vid up recently of Rainbow, in my opinion all that I hate about some of the anglers who visit their with little or no idea, granted they land a few fish but things within this one to boil yer piss.

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.

Id love to see a video of some of his fishing in england. Ive been watching the koi ones too. You can tell they cost a fortune as they one mention prices whn talking about the cheap fish (500). What do u do for a living kev as I think im in the wrong job

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.

love these vids. not my type of fishing either but i absolutely love kevs humour. I find myself laughing my head off when i watch these. when he was panning the camera up at arjens hair i was laughing because i knew he was dying to say something before he even said it.

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
