As we all know, some things work out better when done lying down… Ville, Janne and Ismo found out about an old way to fish and decided to try it out despite all difficulties.
Being a newbie in gold digging Irina Green arrives to the Tankavaara Gold Village in Finland. She meets its infamous owner and takes her first gold panning class hoping to hit it big. Eager to explore the beautiful nature of Lapland she goes fishing - only to realize that in these northern territories both gold digging and fishing mean working your butt off.
Traditional ways of fishing in Finland gradually become a thing of the past. However, curious pals Ville, Ismo and Janne meet a professional fisherman Risto Järvisalo, who has been catching fish using only old methods for a few years. So this time the guys try out traditional fishing with handmade gear made out of natural materials.
Ville invites his friend and a professional fishing guide Pasi to join him. They take off to the sea looking for spring pike. The friends don't get very lucky with the catch, but they are having a great time nevertheless.
It would be great to immediately start off with fishing. But Ville is in Kazan, the capital city of Tatarstan, and he can't help but to take a quick look at the city and its sights.
Some people think that pike is not the best fish to cook something delicious. It has lots of bones, its fillet is not that big and of course pike's smell and taste… However, Mika is convinced that people who don't like pike just do not know how to cook it right.
