In this episode of Reel Africa we join freshwater specimen anglers Werner Lubbe and John Dearden for a session at Aqua Paradiso on the outskirts of Johannesburg. John has pioneered specimen fishing in South Africa for over 20 years, he is a contributor to The Carp Angler magazine and the creation of Aqua Paradiso as a specimen carp lake is due in no small way, to the interest he has generated in the sport. He and Werner are on a session just before the lake is officially re-opened and they are fishing pop-ups off the bottom with PVA bags of bait. The crystal clear water makes the fish exceptionally wary, but John is able to bag a couple of lovely 20 pounders.
