lol carp dont fight they wallow about. Big hounds fight. Some big headed puddle chucker tried the"ive had 40lb carp on this gear so a 15lb hound will be easy" attitude.......the first hound spooled him. Carp aint good for anything apart from draining the bivvy brigade of their hard earned for bivvy slippers, needless stainless accessorys and other "must have to look good for a week by a muddy puddle" nonsense.

thats the soap box fully jumped on for a while lol

We used to eat them regularly too, all those abbey fish ponds and the like would have supplied tench and carp for the table. We've become very narrow minded over the years to what we class as food product, those eastern europeans who we look at as being strange for eating carp probably look at us as if we are certifiable for stocking puddles with them, charging fisherman an arm and a leg to go after them catch one then put it back, and the bloody thing has been given a name as well as if it's a family pet!

No harm but what sounds madder?

Used to know a woman who owned a koi breeding thingy out in the forest and she used to take them for her table if trhey were not good enough to bring in the cash, used to purge it for a bit before cooking, nothing great she reckoned but better than you'd expect.
