Steve Briggs | The Balaton Experience

In keeping with much of Steve’s fishing in recent months, he has turned his attention to another venue that he has been keeping tabs on for a number of years. This venue would require some serious planning ahead, as it is definitely not your ordinary fare, covering almost 150,000 acres in total!
