Essentially, all you need to enjoy carp fishing are three things: basic tackle, bait, and a lot of patience (being last but by no means least!). But first, you will need to know where the carp are.
However the brine is not PVA friendly so if using a tuna and pellet mix it is best to drain the brine off and add a little hemp oil or a PVA friendly oil to the dry flakes to produce a very effective ground bait.
You can find crafters on the streets of the city making their wares right there for you to see. There are over 50 festivals each year and so you will not be short of entertainment. There is Patrimonio holiday which brings artists from all over the world to take part in this celebration of music. In Aleria they have a toga party that honours the history and roots of the village. Then there are the Angelurlaub Ungarn along with the carnivals that are held in the forests along with horse fairs and a number of other holidays that are geared toward the younger population.
Interestingly, in a recent follow-up to the much-acclaimed UK series Dragon’s Den, it was often the businesses the Dragons criticised most heavily and decided not to invest in that were most successful.

As an all-round sociable species, carp are usually found in groups of six or more. A quiet and shady place with lots of plant life around is the type of environment preferred by carp. Being bed feeders, they are usually not easy to see from the surface. You will, however, be able to tell if they are indeed there.
Our family consisting of Dad, Mom, me and my younger sister lived in a bungalow house with a large compound, complete with an annex for kitchen and the Amah’s room. The style of the house was distinctly Victorian, but it also contained some elements of Malay architecture. The fact that Muar River ( quite a large body of water with one bank heavily lined with Mangrove and ‘Nipah’ trees – a type of wild palm) flew close by our house was pivotal in my initiation to angling.
You will find crystal clear, deep blue water that would be utterly inviting. It is these waters that bring visitors from all over Europe to come and delve in the diving experience of Corsica. You can go either scuba diving or snorkelling but either will be a lot of fun. The water is mostly warm and so there is no need to venture to the Caribbean when Corsica is right around the corner.
