Extreme Fishing with Robson Green

What a brilliant programme it could be, if it weren't for the irritating drama queen presenting it!

Honest to god, I can barely watch the fool for a minute before I want to catch a plane to wherever he is, hire a few big lads, & then bury the idiot head-down up to his ankles in mud!

Is it just me?

It is a great show but i too think he is a bit over the top

We loved it but agree when most people do that kind of thing they seem to turn into some kind of "git".

We watch it every week.

We had it down here few months ago

The bloke is a bit of a tw*t isn't he.  Not the best advert for fishing but it is good to see some of the locations and types of fishing out there.

My favoutite toe curling bit every week is when he tries to 'high five' someone who obviously doesn't want to or care every time he pulls a fish out.

A real twit. Last nights programme was a cracker. He was absolutely puddled fishing through that storm. His name could have well gone up in lights holding that carbon fibre rod in his hands.

ah, but it is entertaining, after all its got all you lot talking about it...........

personally, i love fishing as some of you know, and i certainly wouldnt mind fishing some of the places he has.

i love it.

I cannot let my kids watch it, no matter how much they love fishing.
He is a role model, and example of an English fisherman, publicly broadcast for all to see. While the content of his fishing I would love for my kids to see I cannot abide his four letter language and ridiculous prema dona attitude.

That just about sums it up for me too mate.

Jonty hit it on the head about 'toe curling' too................he's absolutely cringeworthy. It's just a damn shame they picked such a prat to present the program as the fishing & places are fascinating. But the second he opens his gob I just want to shove a tuna in it (preferably still in multipack tins!)

I prefer river monsters to watching that idiot  although I haven't watched any of Robsons this time
