We start out in Sydney Harbour trying to catch a fish for an unsuspecting angler, then undertake a scientific mission thanks to World Fish Migration Day, before finally heading to the USA on a whirlwind tour.
We head from north to south with a scientific aim in mind; to study the behaviours of some of our favourite sport fish.
Nige hunts down some offshore aggressors and helps one lucky angler catch a fish they’ve always dreamed of. The show then heads south to do it all again, attempting to fly fish out of a kayak as we chase wild bass with Shannon Kitchener.
Nige Webster sightfishes clear water cod from the rocks. Then, Nige’s nine year-old son Lachlan has been desperate to experience the thrill of marlin fishing. Will he finally get the chance to achieve his dream catch?
It’s business time on the AFN Fishing Show, as Nige meets Sydney fishing guide Stuart and challenges him to catch both squid and kingfish!

Today we conduct a job interview on the water as the team takes on a budding journalist intern. To get the job he simply has to catch a big fish! We then head north and give a barramundi pro very limited time to catch fish.
Today we put a fishing journalist to the test: he gets one day to prove he can catch NSW luderick using an artificial technique he has written about in magazines. The team then heads to the New Zealand South Island to target trout in fast flowing rivers.
Today starts on a deserted tropical island with only a box of lures and a challenge to survive! To help us catch fish, we use the help of some touring Texan anglers. Then we target Murray cod in NSW and conduct an on-water job interview at the same time!
Nige and Trevor head to Eucumbene for a rematch of their fly vs lure challenge. The boys make some competitive catches, but as they bash through the bush, things take a dramatic turn for the worse. Stranded in the middle of nowhere with a man down, this suddenly becomes a tougher challenge than they ever expected!
Peter Morse and Simon Gawesworth join the locals fly-fishing the stunning waters of Tasmania. Then later, Nige Webster and Benny Lockwood break out the soft plastics to hunt for golden perch at Copeton Dam.
Nige and Trevor paint up their own lures and hunt for a feed of fish. Can their crafty artwork entice a bite, or will every one be left cold and hungry? Then, Bill Classon heads to Flinders Island, to get in on the amazing gummy shark fishing!
Join the AFN crew as they hit shallow water estuary and bay waters in search of big trevally, then head to the bustle of the city as we sample some of Sydney’s rock fishing.
The AFN Fishing Show heads offshore this week, as Nige Webster uses his sounder and tries chasing mackerel with deep water soft plastics. Then, we join Andrew McGovern at St. George’s Basin as he goes trolling with a downrigger for big tailor.
The AFN team joins Tom Tierney in South Australia, and see if we can spot a salmon or two. Then later, we head to NSW to join rock and beach guide Alex Bellissimo, as we fish beach worms for whiting on Manly Beach.
