i remember the first time I went fishing. It was in the sweltering jungles of the asian rain forest. lost for days and the food had just run out. amid leeches and mosquitos of gigantic proportions, i stood at the banks of a river with nothing but a pointy stick. a flick of a tail caught my eye. a shadowy creature dart from rock to rock. with a quick movement i speared my first fish.

just kidding. i was visiting my uncle and we went to a fish farm where they had some ponds by a picnic for people to fish in. i tried fishing the old fashoin way with just a stick with some string and a hook at the end with a worm. everything i 'caught' quickly slipped back in.

carp are gods in the uk.

It's illegal to return them to the water. Basically you bury them. When Carp Busters run the competition, they all went into a bin after weighing and then carted off to the fertilizer factory for fish meal.
