Here it is, our final piece of unseen material featuring our beloved and much-missed friend, Iain Macmillan.

Not only was Iain an exceptional angler, a natural entertainer and a true inspiration, but he was also the consummate professional, offering his services for this particular shoot back in the early winter of 2020, despite the obvious threat to his health, with Covid being rife around the country at the time. It was for that reason we wanted to ensure this film didn’t go unseen, and so that his many friends, family and fans could get one more opportunity to see him in action.

The film was shot at Mill Lodge Retreat in the heart of rural Essex, where Tong fished alongside Nick Davies, each set up in one of the luxurious glamping pods scattered around the lake.

Tong and Nick went in with very different tactics, with Tong concentrating on zigs and Nick focusing more on a baited area. Which tactic would come up trumps?

We hope you all enjoy seeing one of angling’s brightest diamonds shining bright one more time.
