Extreme angler Jeremy Wade is on the hunt for freshwater fish with a taste for human flesh in the Season 9 series. This rip-roaring ride through the dark side of nature mixes action and adventure with mysteries, edge-of-the-seat chases and a battle of wills between human and almost supernatural beasts. These killers lurk in the serpentine waterways of the planet, mooching murderously underwater, growing to truly awesome sizes.
