Bivvy tramps Kes Waterman and Steve Banks are stoked as they head off to France in search of x-treme carp adventures. Their epic winter journey takes them south to the Grand Lac and a chance encounter with elusive cult carp legend Chris Springson. Where has he been all these years? Why did he quit the UK carp scene and which new edges has he been conjuring? Little do they know what trials and tribulations lay ahead as they glimpse the promised land of an ultimate rig and monster carp, but they quickly become entangled in a web of crime, violence and jealousy, which leads them all the way back to England and campaigns for the scaly jewels of Fen Drayton and St Ives.
