...Carp Fishing...

I really like to go carp-fishing. Going for carps is not similar to fly fishing because you have to spend a couple of hours/days/weeks at one place. You have to find the fishes (read the lake), put some fodding on this place to lure these large, slowly and unhurried fishes and keep them on place. And you have to wait... waiting, waiting and waiting again. It's always like an short holiday for me. Usually I spend at least two nights on the lake when I'm going for carps :-).

What a cold night! Ice on my tent
