Addicted to Carp

Adam Penning doesn't deny it - he's a dyed-in-the-wool carp addict. More than thirty years of angling has given him plenty of time to ponder what it is that makes carp fishing such an obsession for so many people.

In this series Adam goes fishing with well-known carp anglers and learns about how their love affair with these elusive fish began, what it means to them and what prompted a hobby to become an obsession.
