Tobias Ekvall travels with Niclas Edström to Spain in order to catch a dream perch …


  1. Hope you enjoy this predator special! For those interested in supporting the Channel, the sweatshirt Graeme is wearing can be purchased here: or for other TA Merchandise:

    • Christopher Neely

      The most awesome predator is the toothy fellow talking to the camera. Really, no insult intended; it's no small miracle for a pensioner like yourself, "… to 'ave nary a Toof A'tall." Great stuff as always. Are you gonna steal Mike's Mallet/Peg/Bowling Pin for your Halloween Pirate get-up?

      RRRRRR E S PE C T!

  2. Don't want to comment on your great skills but don't put worms in grass it cuts them

  3. Pike perch ( Zander) meant to be nice eating!

  4. as always Thank U mr Graham.

  5. excellent videos. really enjoyable. still learning to fish myself!

  6. THREE TARGETED SPECIES and no 'catch and cook?' I am not a fan of 'catch and release:' if one is going to 'hassle' the fish, then one should need to eat them.

  7. bang on graham, love a fry up.

  8. Does anyone fish grafham regularly for trout? If so, could you tell me how to catch the large trout. I saw loads of giants lying in the water but completely off the feed next to hill farm. What do I do to catch them?

  9. I think it's safe to say that the gas stove is probably yours now Graeme as you seem to use it more than Mike 😂

    • I now have two of his….I think he has forgotten….they are on a permanent "borrow" basis ! Same with his Carp barrow.

  10. Not too shabby Graeme, those are toothy beggars!

  11. You should try pole fishing on a river or a commercial. It’s a really good method and will guarantee more fish than ledgering and waggler fishing if you’re fishing closer in due to the presentation being a lot better so the fish are more confident to feed

    • No question that pole fishing is highly productive .Accuracy of bait placement etc. I like using a reel though and find it difficult stopping myself striking with a pole.

  12. Pure rock and roll sandwich graeme you should do a cooking show brilliant

  13. Graeme, you have equipment I have never see before guess I need to look around sports dept. before I hit the lakes again next spring. Thank You for another fun fishing video

  14. Leave for 30 seconds then drain ("leave for 2 minutes") 👍

  15. that bacon looks so good compares to what i get here in yhe states

    • Oh our bacon is lovely compared to your stuff ours is back bacon yours is streaky bacon whenever I go on holiday self catering I take a load with me our sausages also get packed for the trip best in the world I think and I have been to a lot of countries

  16. Great video Graeme. Look forward to Fridays and your vid's. Love the fry up sambo too.

  17. You put worms in with the maggots? The maggots eat the worms you know this surely?

  18. I have just bought a copper stone frying pan(robert dyas) which is brilliant for cooking on the beach when fishing etc, requires no oil completely non stick and can be cleaned with a bit of kitchen paper after use.
    Ps Great fan of your fishing expeditions, and YES, this channel is simply the best for fishing on youtube and better than anything coming out of mainstream media.

  19. Mind ur head going down that way u need 2 duck classic graeme

  20. As always you have made me smile “ I haven’t even washed my hands” as you got stuck in to the bacon and eggs 😁😁🤣brilliant and easy to relate to !!
    Gra you should come up to the midlands at some point to fish for Zander . There are plenty and lots of sport…

  21. @tafishing Graham what brand of umbrella is that I’ve got the same one but I’ve had mine for years ?

    • Yes,its old,about 40 years,repaired a couple of times but still hanging in there. I'm not buying a new one until it splits completely.

  22. Thoroughly enjoyed that Graeme thankyou. As much as I'd like to catch them I'm glad we don't have Zander on the broads. They are aggressive creatures, and theres already huge pressure on stocks from otters, pike, cormorants, heron and various birds. I'm about to give the twitched sprats a go, another TA technique that works.

  23. Northern Ninja Runner

    Look on eBay or Amazon for MRE (Meals Ready To Eat). Boil in water for 5 minutes and eat. You can use the water to make your ☕️ Lots of options curry/ pasta/ rice

  24. You are a Ledge….👏👏👏🎣🎣

  25. 6 zander disliked this video. Nice one Graeme.

  26. I can't get my mind off the bacon. We don't have bacon like that here in the states. That bacon looks crazy good and I have to figure out how to get some.

  27. You talk about the lack of fish off the beaches this year, yet I’ve had my best year ever. I stopped using the really heavy gear and converted over to lure and fly rods. I’ve always loved chasing mullet and bass and dedicated a lot of time this past year to the two species, and had a lot of fun. Even when I don’t catch I still enjoy myself, and that’s what I love about fishing. In September I had both my thin-lipped mullet PB and bass PB, the mullet took a baited spinner after I had groundbaited the creek vigorously, and the bass took an ondex spinner. Both fish caught from a muddy little creek that I have never seen anyone fish before. Once again, great video Graeme, Zander are such an awesome looking fish.

  28. 300th like

  29. Love the yearly Halloween Zander fishing videos

  30. John Ord- Outdoor Lad.

    Nice one graham.

  31. It's ketchup. Ketchup implies tomato. Just sayin'.

  32. we call it the look away in Australia may try the frying pan technique soon!

  33. Thanks for encouraging me to dust my rods and camping gear off again guys , big fan of the channels, keep up the good work , i now love fishing again like I used to ,thanks again tight lines ✌🏻

  34. Zander is the only uk coarse fish i havnt caught yet. This video makes me want to put that right!

  35. Get yourself down to penarth pier good company and care for hot pie and brew well when i fished it was great

  36. should dae yer eggs first while the pan's clean …I know,, just sayin' .

  37. Great video as usual – only criticisms relate to no Yorkshire tea, no HP sauce and the broken yolk. Otherwise superb Graeme 👍🐠

  38. The idea behind letting your cereal based groundbait mix 'sour' is that it begins to ferment and release the carbohydrate based sugars held within in the form of alcohol, alcohol is extremely soluble in water so the 'scent' trail spreads out quickly which alerts fish to the presence of food. Alcohol is an extremely effective attractor in cold water due to the readiness with which it dilutes and because it gives off an energy rich signature (sugar = chemical energy), it also helps to dilute oils within things like pellets so they don't go viscous and remain bound to the bait which would reduce their pulling power and digestibility. It's not uncommon to see anglers glugging their baits in dilute spirits such as vodka/whiskey/brandy during the coldest parts of the year.

  39. Over here in Australia we are allowed to have out 2 lines from 2 rods or hand reels by law & also you are allowed a maximum of 2 jigs on each line so your chances of catching 4 fish each time you cast.

  40. Definitely not as good as the pie pushed into a pan of beans but getting there.

  41. Graeme sir,
    Could you please let me know what fish the Canadian's love and call "walleye"

  42. You gave us a taoutdoor tip about the red berries bringing bad weather, I have noticed that when sea gulls gather in large formation way up high snow will soon follow.

  43. Very nice. Zander was the one fish I always wanted to catch. Finally did one summer at 2am using lures on a Swedish lake they are awesome fish.

  44. I have loads of rods from the 90's with those reel seats that are on your avon rods. I don't miss them, especially when playing a fish and the reel falls off the rod lol

  45. I think we know how to make a bacon butty Graham. Thought it was about fishing!

    • Its about whatever I want it to be…that's the great thing about having your own YouTube channel,you get to play Producer,Director,Editor,Cameraman,and even catch a fish when I want. I alaso get to put sauce on my sandwich without asking for permission !! Probably more cooking to come I reckon.

    • Sorry Graham, I was watching it late at night and got a bit hungry, jealousy an ugly trait.

  46. Like it Graham, you cut the tag end and put it back in the tackle box, this is something I have always done from being a lad (and that's a long time). Even if I find someone else's discarded line, I collect it and dispose of it correctly, keeps the area clean and protects the wild life, youth the man.

  47. Good old British breakfast

  48. Al Saraj Fishing Sports

    Night fishing is to difficult to judge spot and other things

  49. Dang!

  50. that's A WALLEYE

  51. Nothing beats fishing and a bacon butty

  52. Nice fish Graham, can't wait for the sea fishing. Getting some decent cod on the NE Scotland area just now 👌

  53. Cheers Graeme for another enjoyable video. For those not aware, Zander may look a tough fish but they are very delicate and need handling and returning with care.

  54. As usual another brilliant blog Graeme! Well done mate!

  55. Great fishing video. Bacon and eggs looked so good.

  56. i put a hook on , put a worm on and fling it out in the water! lol. i don’t know, seems like an awful lot of prep and dilly dallying!

  57. Is a zander a good eating fish?

  58. Hi mate love the video's can u tell me what app you use to edit your vids before you put it on you tube been trying to make some my self 🎣🎣🎣🎣

  59. Aaaawwwww G's, That just sent a shiver down my spine, pulling unprotected rods out a rod bag😧

  60. Haven’t watched the full video, but I would assume you can catch Zander much the same way you fish for Walleye. Here in Manitoba we use what’s called a pickerel rig, I’ve seen you use similar stuff in some ocean fishing videos. You can throw a couple salted minnows on the hooks and give it a shot! They also go after lures as well.

  61. The puns lol

  62. LOL 😄😄 I love the comment about the elastic band and your wallet. I'm the same, waste not want not 👍And I too am a great scrounger for lost or thrown away tackle. Graeme your videos are so human. No old bollocks about branded rods, hooks and the like. Just straight forward down to earth fishing techniques. Well done! Its about time you were given a TV series. ( PS. I prefere a petrol stove. Cheaper than buying gas bottles. LOL 😃)

  63. do a vid on how to make raptor oil its time u reveal it

  64. a nice walleye

  65. Great video. Love your work. Want a bacon sandwich now.

  66. Bacon and eggs? I'd be having a fish fry.

  67. has that been a year already i remember watching last years "halloweeny" zander fishing like it was yesterday

  68. Great video. Look just like our walleye or sauger here in the states. I target them at night with lures. Can't imagine toting all that gear. Head lamp. Handful of artificials and one rod and reel .

  69. Why is it that the egg always breaks up lol 😂 great video greame keep them coming brother am looking to buy one of your books well the wife is for Christmas so looking forward to that tight lines gilly

  70. Shame they've taken down the old boathouse at Bury Hill. Still a great place and I do enjoy a good fry up last thing at night or first thing in the morning!

  71. Graeme sir,
    Are the perch in the UK edible.? Like the yellow perch our Canadian cousin's enjoy. maybe it along with pike should be available at the fish markets.

  72. Man fish look so much different there than they do here in the US.

  73. Who on Earth gives dislikes to our Graeme. He is quite simply the best in this country. Every video is different and the work that must take i can't imagine. A remarkable man and we are so fortunate to have him. Nobody does it better Graeme i love you (man love) Ha Ha.
    Steve in Fife.

  74. love it, very relaxing fishing and cooking up the bacon and eggs made me hungry!

  75. Cutting worms up you barbarian;-)

  76. Andy K Johnson Johnson

    Over the pond here in Canada 🇨🇦 . We call zanda. Pickrell & we eat them 😋 , there really tasty. Especially cooks in bacon fat.

  77. I like pork pies hence my mates nickname for me 'porkpie' and I was fishing with krill groundbait and eating a pork pie and the bite alarm was screaming off it made me jump and I dropped my pork pie in the groundbait and my mate went you can't eat that now and I said I'm not wasting a pork pie so I did eat it and it tasted decent a krill flavour pork pie lovely If you think I'm joking I'm NOT it was nice this winter I'm going to be doing lots of piking whatever the weather day and night I can't wait for it I need to find some good rivers near me I live in bicester in oxfordshire if you ever are about this way Graeme then message me on Twitter or something there is some nice lakes about one of which is quite challenging.

  78. Try a live minnow next time.  Enjoyable video, thanks.

  79. what's a estate lake ? thanks………..

    • Also why did you put back the 2 silver fish that you caught a night with the teeth ? they look good to eat ? is the water dirty or polluted ? thanks…………

  80. "Nice 2 cya…2 cya nice" Another great vid Graeme Forsyth.
