    A 50lb cod is beyond most anglers’ dreams, but certain parts of Norway (see here) offer a realistic chance of catching a fish this big. The bonus of fishing there is that, if you’re so inclined, you can fish right through the night, and 30-pounders are commonplace. Cod over 100lb have been taken commercially. This is part of onlinefishing.tv, which offers a good range of fishing-related videos for game, coarse and sea.


    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.
