This is fish­ing on pure adrenalin. Czech mu­si­cian, con­ser­va­tion­ist and ex­treme fish­er­man Jakub Vag­ner heads to the heart of the Ama­zon wilder­ness to catch the pi­raiba cat­fish.

The river gi­ant can grow up to 3.6m in length. Yet de­spite its size, and the help of a lo­cal guide, Vag­ner’s 10-day search doesn’t net im­me­di­ate re­sults.

He has to find bait to en­tice the big fish and then … wait it out. He has a few close calls but does he find the mam­moth cat­fish he is af­ter?
