Its the weather..at least out here in France. Where is the summer ? May was warm and I had a great time at Lac Du Madine but June,July ..terrible. I had to wear two coats last Sunday and I was still cold. Philip.
This has to be the worst year i`ve had so far for catches,and im so pleased im not the only one,i dont mean that to be nasty,it just makes me feel happier in the knowledge that perhaps its not me.

I thought there was something wrong with this thread, firstly I thought it was down to the writing all being a different colour, then it really hit home when Rik wrote "I'm doing better than most on the waters that I'm fishing". )
The Carp fishing here, in the Chech Republic, has been exceptional this year. Prticularly on the rivers, where there are some very fit, hard fighting fish.
The locals, in the main, do not have much of a clue, so any experienced visitor can have a field day! My record todate, this year, is 10 river Carp, total weight 27 kilos, in 3 hours. I lost a further 3 because the hooks failed me!
All this, and Cat fish averaging 2 meters, Pilsner beer at 25p, and ciggies at 80p!
I could say the same about you carp angler and take the pi55 out of you, but I fear nature done a good enough job of that. Too tired for MSN, meetings all day tomorrow...fishing on Thursday/Friday though! Wahaaaa...
