Armed with a venomous 10” barb on the end of its whip-like tail, this mysterious 700 lb predator tests Jeremy to his physical limit, snapping his heavy duty rod, tearing the muscle in his bicep, and luring him into a confrontation with the border police. In this epic quest, Wade witnesses a remarkable event in the life of one of these River Monsters and sheds some light on the natural history of this most elusive of monsters.
Episode 2: Killer Snakehead: Angler Jeremy Wade is in for another nerve-testing encounter of the scaly kind as he homes in on a Far Eastern predator that's now invading America's backyards. Accused of homicide, and said to breathe air and crawl on land, the Snakehead is a monster that sounds more like a gangster than a fish. But does it deserve its 'Jack the Ripper' reputation? Is it really capable of killing a human? And what lies in wait for Jeremy when he ditches his rod and swims into the lair of the beast?
Episode 3: Alaskan Horror: Deep in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, people on two bottomless lakes have been vanishing without trace for thousands of years. Extreme angler, Jeremy Wade, searches for the lethal lake monster of native legend that's dragging them down to an icy grave. Sub-arctic fishing is a first for Jeremy and ends up with him landing the largest fish he's ever caught, but is this the monster?
Episode 4: Demon Fish: Jeremy Wade journeys up the infamous Congo River in Central Africa in search of the notorious Goliath Tiger Fish — a terrifying beast that preys on the unsuspecting. This creature combines the strength, speed and ferocity of all the river monsters Jeremy has ever encountered, creating the most horrific yet perfect freshwater killing machine anywhere in the world. With some of the biggest teeth of any freshwater fish, its ferocity is the stuff of nightmares. This mysterious monster predator pushes Jeremy to his physical and mental limit. It is going to take all of his skills and some supernatural help from the local witch doctor to catch one.
Episode 5: Congo Killer: Jeremy Wade travels to the dark heart of Africa and journeys up one of the few rivers left on earth that will still really test a fisherman. This is the Congo, a river shrouded in mystery, steeped in legends and soaked in violence. And there is one spirit in particular, called Mami Wata, that is said to lure fishermen from their boats taking them to the bottom of the river, where they are imprisoned for eternity. Farfetched? Maybe not. Jeremy discovers that the truth is every bit as frightening as the myth.
Episode 6: Rift Valley Killers: Jeremy Wade is on a quest to Africa's Rift Valley, the cradle of mankind, to explore the roots of fishing and the monsters these first fishermen would have faced. Fishermen here have one of the most dangerous jobs in existence. Storms come out of nowhere, giant crocs attack from beneath, hippos maul you to death, and rival fishing gangs will kill you for your catch. But at the heart of this lurks a fish that can measure over 8ft long and weigh over 500 lb — the Nile Perch. This is a place where myth and reality merge, and it could be Jeremy's most dangerous mission yet.
Episode 7: Bull Shark: The bull shark is the most aggressive and unpredictable of all the sharks, thought to be responsible for more attacks on people than any other. Last year the biggest Bull Shark ever recorded was caught in South Africa — in a river. Was this monstrous freshwater catch a horrifying fluke, or are there more shark giants prowling this river? Jeremy Wade heads to South Africa to see if he can land a monster freshwater shark of his own. See if last year's catch was a one off or if there are more monsters out there, and discover if the presence of this known man-eater is a human tragedy just waiting to happen.
