Heading into the untouched lands of Bolivia’s Amazon, Robson is on the hunt for fishing gold: the Bolivian golden dorado, one of the fiercest and most ferocious fighting fish on the planet. But to catch it he is going to have to push further and fight harder than ever before on this remote and challenging angling odyssey.

Starting in the jungle, every fish he catches will take him further up river and deeper into the unknown; the redtail catfish, the payara, and the red-bellied piranha are all part of his journey, before he takes on the golden giant.

Fishing with and learning from local legends and indigenous tribes, can Robson hack the pace and come back richer, in more ways than one? Will he catch gold?
