Extreme angler Jeremy Wade returns to Australia’s deadly Fitzroy River on his toughest quest yet - to catch one of the world’s rarest fish, the Glyphis Shark. It is so elusive that it was only discovered 10 years ago; so rare that only a handful have ever been seen; and so mysterious that next to nothing is known about it.  But could this endangered rarity be a man-eater?
Braving killer crocodiles, dangerous fish and deadly tides, can Jeremy become one of the first people ever to catch a Glyphis?  And can he discover whether it has been preying on people?
