I love fishing ,,,does anyone go lake carp fishing???? Would be nice to have some tips or advice 

I used to fish mate but trout fly fishing. Take them home and cook them. My son is a mad carp fisherman. Spends thousands on gear. He even has a small remote controlled boat to send the bait out on :a:. Spent three years trying to catch one particular fish at his club.

I just don't get it.

Yeah my advice is to get some brown bread and some crab fishing hooks I was on holiday with my kids years ago it was hilarious this keys had a really expensive rod setup on a pond in a lovely holiday can't we went to so just for a laugh I thought I'd have a go and started getting my little daughter was 5 at the time just sprinkle some bread behind her leaves of the water plants by The Edge I could see see the fish moving around near the reeds hiding from the fisherman so I can't believe it all or some I got hooked and I pulled out this fish it was literally about 10 inches long and all the kids that was standing around watching him fish ran over I will well impressed the they went out and bought crab hooks so there's probably no fish left in that pond now:1579412966_emo1:

A friend took me fishing once in Germany. After a while he noticed my float was missing (I was too bored to notice). When I reeled it in, there was a small fish on the hook!!

Then in Aden, 2 RAF pals took me to try fishing in the sea off a quay. After 10 minutes I reeled in and there was a fish on the end of the line!! Then one of them called out he had caught a small shark and he was reeling it in. I went over and grabbed his line to lift it onto the quay and the line snapped and the grumpy swine shouted at me. 

Those 2 incidents taught me that perhaps fishing was a tad too difficult for me to ever get to grips with it.

I came, I saw and it conquered me.
