Matt Watson

Part stuntman-part conservationist and self confessed ‘mad fisherman’, Matt Watson is the star of Ultimate Fishing.

Matt’s passion for the ocean and its creatures is what captivates viewers and ropes them in to come along on the adventure where Matt shares his extensive knowledge of the ocean’s creatures.
