Let me introduce myself
My name is Joachim Stelma and we share the most beautiful hobby there is: carp fishing! I come to France for at least ten weeks a year to catch carp. Only on the public waters, as the challenge is the biggest here. I prefer the mysterious rivers like the Rhône and especially the Lot river. Usually the nature is very beautiful around rivers and rivers have a huge amount of fish, including (very large) carp. A lot of sessions were successful, but many more where all about discovering.
I've been coming to the Lot for years. I know where to find just about every path that leads to the river. I want to know everything about it, and I keep searching. It has led to a lot of knowledge about the river. Think of water levels and the current, fishing techniques (per season) and especially the carp heads on different stretches.
