Carp Adventures Africa Part 1
In the first episode of Carp Adventures - Africa from Globetrotter World Tony travels to South Africa to see if he can't tempt some carp to his bait. Part travelogue, part wildlife documentary, part fishing film, on this adventure he's joined by longtime fishing companions Dean, Gary and John. Within hours of arriving they land a big mirror carp - and there's more in store, including some serious African weather that forces them to reconsider their location. They fish a huge lake that forms the focal point of a large private game reserve, but have to contend with big African animals, and severe floods. On these big lakes, they make good use of canoes to give themselves the best chance of hooking up.

Carpland is a documentary-style adventure film about the history of carp in the United States. This non-native invasive species was introduced to U.S. waterways as a food source, and quickly spread to almost every state within a century. Carp pose a significant threat to numerous wild ecosystems and native flora and fauna. They’re also an adaptive species, thriving in waterways too damaged by pollution to support native species – providing angling opportunities for urban populations. Carp’s short history in North America spawns many questions about their role and future here. The film investigates these questions, and more. Filmed on location in California, Pacific Northwest, Illinois, Michigan and more.
