The Balkans have made a remarkable recovery considering how recently they were a war-torn part of the world, and now attract large numbers of tourists each year. Carp anglers from the UK are also starting to make the long journey to the region, as although carp are very much still on the menu in many places, there are also lakes which are catch and release, and the strain of carp present in these countries is now growing to huge sizes very quickly! Out intrepid trio of presenters have heard of a lake in Bosnia which is home to some very big fish and contains good numbers of them, so they can’t resist going to check it out. First stop though is a bit of predator fishing in neighbouring Serbia, before a long drive gives them a chance to see parts of both countries, and how this part of the world has recovered after the conflict. Once they are installed at the lake they set about catching some carp, and it soon becomes apparent that large numbers of them are grouped up in one part of the lake, which leaves the other two having to work really hard for a bite. But they have plenty of days ahead of them, and are confident that at some point the fish will move around, and in the meantime there is always the chance of a bite out of the blue from a really big one anyway! Failing that, they can at least watch their mate hauling them in.
