„Catch the Trophy“ producer Pavel Bocaj was born and spent his childhood near Danube. Since he was a little kid, river banks and fishing rod were an unavoidable part of his daily life. He chose to make his bread and butter doing something what he knows and what he loves, so he had open a few shops with fishing equipment. He was advertising his business as sponsor of fisherman’s stories at local TV. He wasn’t satisfied with quality of those stories and he decided to take camera in his own hands. The content he was producing – the promotion of sport fishing connected with travelling and care about environment – firstly were broadcast locally, but in short time it filled slots of national-wide and regional broadcasters.
In the meantime „Catch the Trophy“ was filmed not only at home (Vojvodina and Serbia) but some of more than 200 hours were produced in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, France, Sweden, Mongolia and other fishing destinations in the world.
„Catch the Trophy“ got dozen awards, starting from the special commitment at MEFEST in Serbia 2007, the last one was Golden Plaque for promoting sport tourism in Slovenia 2020.
