THE  fifth series of River Monsters starts on Tuesday, January 7 and, even so early in 2014, is sure to be the most viewed angling series of the year. Why? It’s prime-time viewing on ITV1 at  7.30pm.

Today, as we get you in the mood with a week of preview pix we take a peek at episode two, called Atomic Assassin.

After venturing to over 20 countries in search of monster fish, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade is thrown headfirst into his most dangerous challenge to date. That’s the claim of the makers, anyway!

Stories of grizzly attacks in a remote rural corner of Ukraine lead him on the hunt for an elusive lake monster but the centuries old trail soon lands him at the most unlikely location: the site of the worst nuclear accident in human history, Chernobyl’s reactor number 4.

In a nerve-shredding race against radiation and time, can he uncover the culprit and could it really be the gargantuan mutant of his innermost nightmares?

The full story about this new series and what Jeremy Wade is up to currently appears in the bumper double issue of Angler’s Mail.
