Broadcast catches with fisherman (2,6)


I believe the answer is:

st andrew

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'fisherman' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both people as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps there's a link between them I don't understand?

'broadcast catches with' is the wordplay.
'broadcast' becomes 'strew' (I've seen this in another clue).
'catches' is an insertion indicator.
'with' becomes 'and'.
'strew' going around 'and' is 'ST ANDREW'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for st andrew that I've seen before include "Patron of Scotland" , "Scotland's patron saint" , "Christian icon" , "Apostle" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
