To many, the idea of taking your fishing rod and going fishing in the centre of Sofia – or any city for that matter – may sound absurd. Yet street fishing, though not all that popular in Bulgaria, has been gaining in popularity elsewhere.

What does it take to fish in a city, what kind of fish can you catch, and how popular is this hobby in urban conditions? Find out the answers to these questions in “Don’t eat your dreams! - the secrets of street fishing”  from Radio Bulgaria’s archives which we are reposting to mark world fisheries day, 27 June.

And yes, there are rivers underneath the National Palace of Culture, and there is fish in them!
