River Monsters is a 60 minute documentary/reality series on Animal Planet about a biologist and fisherman extraordinaire who begins each episode by relaying a myth or rumor of some fresh water beast and then sets out to catch one. There's typically a reenactment first of the story told by a local fisherman about how he caught one of the River Monsters or nearly caught one or nearly died trying to catch one.
