Sn6 Ep9: Lubin the Australian

Milan meets an unlucky and lonely Australian angler – and invites him out fishing for the day.

Lubin, a keen Australian angler has travelled to New Zealand in hope of a big kingfish. However, all sorts of problems seem to gang up to destroy his dreams. Dodgy accommodation, bad weather and sharks are his enemies, but eventually Lubin meets Milan, who at least can turn the fishing into a good experience.
