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?
