A much acclaimed series of six BBC films in which famous anglers Chris Yates and Bob James take us on a grand fishing adventure across Britain.

Childhood Dreams. A journey of rediscovery. Chris and Bob prove the secret of success is not how to catch, but how to enjoy.

Redmire Legends. Record-breaking carp fisher Chris Yates returns to the scene of his triumph to find that carp fishing demands unlikely and amusing techniques if success is to be enjoyed.

In Search of Salmon. On a lighthearted journey through Scotland, Chris and Bob find that there's more to angling than catching fish.

Autumn Glory. Venturing out to the famous Hampshire Avon we discover that the wonderful autumn fishing described in the angling literature still exists in glorious profusion.

Midwinter Madness. The true angler's favourite season. Venturing out on a cold winter's day Chris and Bob find that the legend of the River Kennet is not one fish, but two.

Monster Myths. Inspired by the stories of a record carp that swims in an ancient estate lake, Bob and Chris set out on their ultimate challenge; to capture the monster of the myth.


“What I’m particularly proud of is that it helps non-anglers, the wives and girlfriends to understand why we have to go fishing.” - Chris Yates - 2004 -

“Surely the greatest series of films ever made in fishing. The magic of Hugh Miles’ photography and the contrast between Bob James and Chris Yates captured anglers and non-anglers alike…” - Angling Times - 2003 -

“The best television angling show ever screened - Chris’ gentle approach did wonders to help improve anglings image.” - Angling Times - 2003 -

The release of A Passion for Angling in 1993 was voted the tenth greatest fishing moment of all time by Angling Times in 2003

“Incorporates everything I hold dear in fishing.” - John Wilson - 1993 -

“Hilarious - a work of pure genius - the first time the joy of fishing has been captured on film.” - David Hall - 1993-

Caught in Time

The Diaries of Chris Yates

- Summer Days -

Eccentric carp angler Chris Yates escapes from reality

“A superb Christmas present! Brilliant! well done to all concerned!”

- Steve Dean - Lindford -

- John Hangcell - Milford -

“...much enjoyed... not a lot happens then everything happens - just like fishing.”

“The new Miles - Yates collaboration ‘Caught in Time’, is one hours top quality viewing which will send even the most stressed - out angler into a relaxed, dreamy state of mind” - Anglers Mail - 2003 -

Acclaimed author, broadcaster and fisherman Chris Yates joins award winning film-maker and fisherman Hugh Miles as they share this attempt to re-invent the fishing diary. This is ‘reality TV’ with a difference, the camera capturing those moments in time that only happen once -the few successes - and many failures! During the past year, Chris and Hugh have explored a beautiful lake in Southern England... Chris’ favourite carp water - his sanctuary and escape from reality. This first part of what might become a series has been created by two of the team who made the classic BBC series ‘A Passion for Angling’.



“If you enjoyed ‘Passion for Angling’ then you’ll enjoy ‘Caught in Time’, perhaps even more so, as I did myself. In short the film sequences are brilliant”. - Barry Richards - -

“The video is extremely enjoyable and await the next instalment with baited (bated) breath! - Roger and Meryl Jeffs -

“Caught in Time’ is another masterpiece, my favorite yet, a carp angler’s dream becomes reality”. - S. Dutton - Cardigan -
