Fishing is one of the oldest traditions of all time. Some fish as a hobby and some for sport but people have fished for centuries for one main reason, food. While most of us don’t actively fish to put food on the table anymore, sport fishing has become the fastest growing sport/hobby in most of the Western Hemisphere. Most fishermen are quite happy to sink a line in the water at their local fishing holes but more and more fishing vacations around the world have become increasingly more popular. Fishing in France has become a popular vacation for certain fishermen because the wide availability of carp fishing on offer.
Many fishing vacations are available to France from guided tours of some of the oldest fishing holes in the world to sea charters to go after the big catch. One of the more interesting fishing industries in France is the Carp fishing fisheries. These fisheries saw a demand for carp fishing and took over old abandoned gravel pits and turned them into man made lakes, stocked with carp.
