THIS week’s Angler’s Mail cover star is a man in-demand now with the Olympics in full flow – former decathlete champion Dean Macey.

Mad keen angler Dean is presenting for the Al Jazeera TV network during London 2012.

But before the Olympics got underway he got plenty of fishing in, including the personal best 3 lb 11 oz crucian on our mag’s front cover.

It came during the making of the third series of Fishing Gurus for Sky Sports TV.

Dean said: ‘Catching fish for the cameras always looks quite easy from the living room but even on what seems like the perfect day for fishing, we all struggle – making a good swim look very bad at times.’
