This ten-part adventure follows the heated contest between friends turned nemeses Lasse Pauhe and Kimmo Puosi on the rivers of Lapland. Hailing from in Finland, these anglers put their years of experience fishing these rivers together to the test in pursuit of Salmon, Trout, Chub, Pike and all manner of local species. The show gives insight to the unique lure and fly styles of sport fishing used by Finish anglers on rivers like the Kokemaenjoki and the Torne. Through victory and defeat, this rivalry continues to demonstrate the beauty and prowess of a part of the world that’s criminally undervalued in the fishing community.

Paul is in Northern Ireland on the beautiful Lower River Bann that drains the mighty Loch Neagh. It's full of large Bream, Roach, Pike, Perch, Eels and Trout and to see which of these he can catch he joins Francis Duffy, a local coarse angling expert. They start off with a couple of decent Roach and after a heavy shower, Paul catches his first ever Bream, at around 4lbs. Out in Francis' rowing boat Paul adds a hard fighting pike to his collection. Next up is a spot of sea fishing as he joins a party on board the Missy Moo out of Larne, skippered by Tommy Martin. Wrasse, Ling, Mackerel and pollack are on the menu. Back on the Lower River Bann, Paul joins the well know guide John Todd for a morning's Salmon fishing. They're on the famous Carnroe beat, where the salmon heading towards Loch Neagh are held up by a huge weir. Paul makes the most of this golden opportunity and hooks a lovely fish on his Scottish Ally Shrimp fly. John tells Paul that there aren't many Sea Trout to be found in the Bann but Loch Neagh is home to its very own Dollaghan Trout, a fish that migrates down up and down the feeder streams to the loch. The invitation to fish for one proves a great way to end the show.

Rae and Keith are targeting Perch this week, one of the most prolific predatory fish in UK waters and they start their quest on the Oak Lake at Alders Farm Fishery in Buckinghamshire. They set up next to each other and discuss tactics before Keith talks Rae through the variety of baits he's brought along. Rae starts with a couple of maggots on a waggler and is focusing on an overhanging tree close in. Both anglers start catching Perch in numbers and there obviously a lot of Perch around but they are struggling to find the bigger ones. Finally Keith hooks a nice Perch but as Rae prepares to net it, the fish slips the hook. Disappointment quickly turns to delight soon after though as Rae lands a lovely Rudd on a medium sized prawn. Rae moves swim in search of a bigger fish but as soon as he's left, Keith lands the best Perch so far and having worked out a formula manages another good sized one. In the second half of the show, the pair visit the Grand Union canal near Tring, on a crisp October morning, and this time are lure fishing for Perch. Whilst Rae uses a spoon, Keith starts on soft plastics using a creature bait that imitates a crayfish. Rae catches a small fish, but Keith isn't having much luck so switches to a small crankbait. Keith catches a lovely specimen near to the bank, before they move down the canal to a boatyard and Keith gets a big surprise when he hooks a double figure Pike.

Its late Spring and Keith and Rae meet up on Smallford Lake, a small gravel pit owned by Verulam Angling Club in St Albans. Tench are on the agenda in this episode and its therefore an early start as these fish are often best targeted in the early mornings and evenings. The lake is well known for having some big Tench in it and despite a little too much sun for Keith's liking, conditions look perfect. Whilst Rae tries the margin, Keith uses a 20ft rod to reach a shelf in open water and he's the first to strike landing a beautiful female specimen. Rae moves to another swim to try his luck but it isn't long before he's called back to help land Keith's second Tench, and its another stunner. In the 2nd part of the show, the pair visit Milton Lake on the Bury Hill Fishery which predominantly holds some beautiful Crucian Carp and Tench, and the pair are hoping for a more prolific session. They set up in adjoining swims and discuss tactics before Rae starts with some luncheon meat as bait on the advice of the fishery owner. Keith is using a pole today and is starts by using expander pellets and it isn't long before he lands a handsome Crucian Carp. Keith continues to land numerous Crucian and a small Tench, but Rae is struggling so decides to fish a little finer and he then too starts to have success. Mr Tench begins to show up now too and the guys enjoy a memorable session at Bury Hill Fishery.

Des's guide Benchawan baits up his three rods, one with very smelly fish guts, the second with a chicken neck. Both fished in mid water on 80lb braid with an 80lb heavy nylon leader.

Highlights that follow are a lovely Siamese Carp, a Redtail Catfish and a gigantic Mekong catfish but quite honestly the variety of species that Des catches is amazing, most of them new to him, but his trip of a lifetime is completed when he lands an Arapaima at over 300lbs.
