Merv Hughes (Host)Big hearted Former Australian test fast bowler, who represented Australia between 1985 and 1994 in 53 Test matches, taking 212 wickets. Merv Also Played 33 One Day Internationals.
He took a hat trick in a Test against the West Indies at the WACA in 1988-89, and his cricketing antics are infamous and can be recalled by most who saw BIG Merv steaming in. Merv has been a national test selector, reality TV star, radio and TV commentator and now hosts his very own national fishing show.
His love for cricket has been surpassed for his passion for fishing since retiring, all styles and all types. Merv's cricketing career has taken him all over Australia and during those tours he spent his days off exploring all the waterways those states had to offer. Merv Hughes fishing is a light hearted show with some ripping catches, a few yarns (mostly true) mateship and of course a splash of comedy thrown in.
