Hello everyone, so I’m Michaël and I am 37 years old. I am a foreman in public works for an international group. I have fished for carp for 26 years. I caught my first carp in 1988 (this does not make me sound young), not using modern methods but using a good old hook and three grains of sweet corn. I remember it like it was yesterday when mid-afternoon, I saw the rod bend and then the strike and I was caught by the carp fishing bug. My fishing has been greatly influenced by my birth place. I am from Auvergne, a region rich in large reservoirs. So it is only natural that I fell in love with these wide open spaces, and it is in these areas where I spend most of my time fishing.
