Nick Hancock Presents STV’s New Fishing Series

Nick Hancock is the presenter of stv’s exciting new series from SMG Productions, Nick Hancock’s Fishing School.

The ten-part series, which goes out on stv from January 2007, follows six aspiring anglers from all walks of life, as they spend two intensive weeks living and fishing together in the remote area of Scourie in the Scottish Highlands.

Here, the students are trained by some of the best coaches around, while presenter and fishing fanatic Nick Hancock – who presented the top rating shows Room 101 and They Think It’s All Over – oversees the drama as the six students get to know each other and improve their angling skills.    

Nick Hancock said: “Fishing School is an exciting project which I’m thrilled to be involved with. The series combines a great sport with lots of human drama as we follow the progress of our fishing students, and I’m sure it will be a hit with viewers in Scotland and across the world.

He continued: “The students are all fantastic and I enjoyed watching them develop their fishing skills during the course of filming. And as a huge fishing enthusiast, it was great to combine my hobby with TV presenting!”

Derrick Thomson, Director of Programmes at stv said: “This is a fantastic project, bringing together a varied group of people, all with a great passion for fishing. Nick Hancock’s Fishing School will be a great mix of comedy, drama and fishing which viewers will be hooked on.”

Elizabeth Partyka, MD of SMG Productions added: “We’re confident that Fishing School will be a highly popular series, based on a format that could run and run.  We’re sure that viewers who love the sport – and those who don’t – will get caught up in the participants’ lives as they spend two weeks living and breathing fishing.”

Nick Hancock’s Fishing School is a SMG Production for stv.

Executive Producers are Derrick Thomson and Jim Manson. Series Producer is Cameron Miller.
