The Best Photos, Videos and Animated GIFs from the World of Fishing

We've put this section together so you don't have to waste time searching the Internet. Here we will continue to add the best, most hilarious, scariest and bizarre fishing stuff we find. We'll never compromise on quality - if the Drowning Worms team doesn't enjoy it, we won't post it.
Over time, we hope to build up a totally dependable, world-beating archive of quality fishing movies, photos and GIFs. You simply won't need to look anywhere else, because you'll be able to find it right here.
Of course, no team is complete without its network. Yes, that means you! If you find something and it makes you chuckle, cry, whoop with excitement or go green with envy, PLEASE let us know. We live and die by the quality of the stuff we post and we couldn't do that without our fellow worm drowners. We love you, now go on... get out there and film us some awesome movies to watch!

Do fish get too full to eat?

Russell Cowell Small Pike from Chew

As some of you may know, I’ve been feeding a pike since it attacked my keep-net over a year ago. I tend to save a few deadbeats for her whenever I visit the fishery and, without fail, she always turns up before I leave. She’s normally keen as mustard but, as this video shows, she’s […]

My pet pike


Does anyone out there have a tame pike? I am very happy to confirm that I indeed do! Maybe I should qualify that statement in that it doesn’t actually belong to me (or anybody else for that matter). It lives in a one-and-a-half-acre lake in Staffordshire, which was dug out by my best friend, Ken […]
