Carp and Catfish Europe Part 2
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.
