Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen shows off fishing talents on This Morning

Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen returned to screens earlier this week to reveal her fly fishing skills.

Fans of the shepherdess were left unhappy when the next episode of her Channel 5 show was dropped from schedules in favour of the new Anne Boleyn series.

However Amanda was back on screens thanks to a This Morning appearance, in which she proved farming wasn't the only thing she was good at.

The Huddersfield-born star fronted a fly fishing segment, teaming up with a teacher from the Northern Fishing School to share the hobby with viewers.

The fishing expert, Marina Gibson, showed Amanda casting skills away from the water on the grounds of the Swinton Park Estate.

She explained: "Casting is all about rhythm and finesse."

But mum-of-nine Amanda asked: "So why are we starting my fishing lesson on the lawn?"

Marina explained that her preferred method of teaching was to show people to focus on the casting technique, rather than jumping straight in to catching fish.

She went on to tell Amanda that she'd become interested in fishing as a young girl with her mum, and that there had been an increase in female anglers in recent times.

Amanda, 46, did admit that she thought of fishing as a "male dominated sport".

As the segment continued, Marina showed Amanda and viewers how to properly handle fish to avoid harming them, as many people accidentally put pressure on the animals' organs.

Eventually, Amanda got stuck in in the water to put her new skills to the test.

She told viewers: "I've enjoyed this me time, I can see why it became so popular over the past 12 months. This is something I could get hooked on."

Amanda managed to catch a fish and then cooked up some smoked trout pate afterwards.

It was a welcome return to television for Amanda, as fans were missing her from her usual time slot.

Our Yorkshire Farm fans had been fuming when they discovered that Tuesday's episode had been pulled from Channel 5's schedules.

Instead, the new series Anne Boleyn aired.

One fan ranted: "F***ing fuming at the piss poor way Channel 5 has treated Our Yorkshire Farm and its loyal fans tonight."

Another added: "Our Yorkshire Farm is Channel 5’s most watched show. Perish the thought that the final episode has been postponed tonight in the hope that Channel 5 can hijack viewers for [Anne Boleyn]. Perhaps they think no-one will notice."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
