More about Me: I fish for carp as long as I can remember. When I was about ten years old, I fished with my friends on nearby gravel pits. Back then, we considered 5lb carp a monster. Fishing gear we used these days I can compare only to modern Scooby-do rods. Early nineties in Germany was when I used protein boilies and hair rigs for the first time, but that was not even close to what is called modern carp fishing. It all started in Chicago where I had a privilege to meet Tommy Riley who helped me get hooked by showing me what real carp fishing is all about, and where I met Magdalena and Ernest.
