In Episode one of Carp and Catfish Adventures Europe Globetrotter Tony Davies-Patrick heads to the continent. Their first port of call is a lake in Northern Italy, but first Tony recalls some underwater filming he did at a lake in France the previous year, where he manage to capture some 60lb+ carp on film. Once at the glacial lakes of Viveroni – a huge body of water – it takes some patience before the action really begins in the cooler weather of the mountains and American Signalclaw Crayfish causing some trouble. In the end he and his Italian fishing buddy Roberto head to the River Po where, after some heavy rain, things start to go their way, a few nice carp and a gorgeous tench for good measure. Most of these fish have never been caught before, and fight hard.

Episode two of Tony’s European adventure sees he and Roberto have one last attempt to hook up to a big carp. Some interest from resident catfish prompts a look at the baits, and eventually, on their final night on the lake a common close to 40lb comes to the net. Later, while out on a dingy, Tony hooks into a huge fish which gives him an almighty battle before eventually succumbing. From Italy Tony heads to northern Spain to target some more European carp and also the catfish that make the Iberian peninsular a mecca for anglers. Here the weather is kinder, and the first signs of spring are showing. The fish are friskier too, with several sizeable carp and a few huge catfish landed.
