  • HOOKED: MONSTER FISHING

DESCRIPTION

Travel the globe and hook some of the biggest, oddest and most ferocious underwater creatures on the planet.

From Australia to Mongolia to the Amazon, travel the globe to reel in some rare underwater giants with fish biologist and conservationist Zeb Hogan on a quest to study and protect these creatures of the deep. These are no ordinary fish. These are megafish – monsters that defy belief with their enormous proportions, predatory weapons and elusive nature. Over 6-foot in length and weighing over 16-stone these fish are no easy catch and have to be seen to be believed. See the amazing encounters of man and megafish in Hooked: Monster Fishing.
