    I love France, and course fishing, im definatly not writing France or carp fishing off. Apparently the week before i arrived a 40lb carp had been caught!
    Every mile on a river takes you further from home than every hundred miles on a road.

    I hope thats a birchbark canoe in your pocket.... - I guess i should give some credit to Metal Mug

    You've just explained the whole philosophy of hunting and fishing.

    well as a colonial, 'poaching' is acceptable, we even adopt songs about it to national anthem status (Waltzing matilda) the methods used in Australia mightn't be to taste, but I would love to come over and investigate their effectiveness on your game

    However, I wouldn't want to offend the locals.

    Feebullet, it's probably best we don't mention the emu cull in the 1920's when they used massed Lewis guns.

    Or how we hunt cane toads, foxes, rabbits, hares, deer, camels and everything else that was dumped here wisely... As if filling the place with crims and game animals was ever going to end any other way! LOL the scurge of society has not always sporting intentions, some of us hunt to eat. And when shooting carp, I get one with every cast!!!
    Bang on!

    Well, as you guys are no longer any good at cricket, rugby or swimming, I guess that you have to be good at something and shooting fish in a barrel is as good a sport as any to conquer the world.

    PS, only joking we love our colonial siblings really.

    Don't worry, if we could have sent you all the carp and culled Germaine Greer instead of the other way round, we would have.

    I'd forgotten about her, were you trying to get your own back when you sent her over to us??
