    A few days ago, we highlighted the extraordinary scene of a hooked marlin jumping into a boat in Cairns, Australia. My friend Andy Nicholson, who was running a boat in Malindi, Kenya, had a big kingfish jump into his boat (and it wasn’t even hooked). One of the Italian party was so scared, he jumped straight in the sea. But this scene of a big barracuda leaping into a boat is the most spectacular jump I’ve seen. You’ll find it here.




    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
