 New stretch target

The main benefit of excess funds would be the option to create longer or more episodes. We can perhaps look at 6 x 45 minute programmes, or even more than 6. The potential is limitless, and it's all down to you, our magnificent fans and supporters who have so far completely blown us away with your passion and generosity. But we're not resting on our laurels now that the first target has been reached! As you heard on the live show on Facebook, the Duke is up for as much as we can throw at him, so if we can reach, say, £40000, then we WILL do more! Thank you - you are amazing!

Hi, and welcome to the official fund-raising page for The Ultimate Rod Race, the brand new fishing series starring Matt Hayes and Mick Brown. Matt and Mick really are angling royalty, having already made timeless series including The Great Rod Race, The Greater Rod Race, Wet Nets and Record Breaking Fish amongst many others. Not only that, they are long-time great friends and fishing partners - the chemistry between the two is clear for all to see in the programmes, with laughs galore and mutual micky-taking, alongside years of fishing experience and expertise. 

The Ultimate Rod Race is the long awaited and much called-for new series made up of six brand new episodes showing Matt and Mick at their very best, accepting challenges to catch different species of fish in each show. It has been massively welcomed and clamoured for by their huge following, and to say the excitement and anticipation for this is huge is a big under-statement. The money raised in this project will fund the filming and editing of the videos shot; as well as top quality video of the lads fishing each venue, there will also be amazing underwater footage too. On top of that we need to cover all expenses along the way including accommodation for all involved, food and drink and of course, travel. 

We are all unbelievably excited about this project, and know we can rely on you, the fans of Matt and Mick, to donate what you can - ideally 20 pounds -  and thus play a valuable part in putting together The Ultimate Rod Race!

Thank you so much for donating - this is going to be absolutely fantastic!
